Coalition of 17 states challenges Trump over climate change policy | Environment | The Guardian

A coalition of 17 US states filed a legal challenge on Wednesday against efforts by Donald Trump’s administration to roll back climate change regulations, deepening a political rift over his emerging energy policies.

Led by New York state, the coalition said the administration has a legal duty to regulate emissions of the gases scientists believe cause global climate change.

“The law is clear: the EPA must limit carbon pollution from power plants,” the New York attorney general, Eric Schneiderman, said in a statement announcing the challenge.
