The EPA, last year, adopted a rule limiting methane emissions from new and modified oil and gas extraction and pipeline facilities. The agency began developing the guidelines for limiting emissions at refineries and other facilities, as it is required to do so by law.

    On March 2nd, with no explanation, Pruitt ordered the EPA to halt the process for establishing guidelines.

    Ferguson feels the Trump administration is not only violating the law, but squelching an opportunity to limit greenhouse gases going into the atmosphere.
