Specifically, Trump made two major announcements: a review of the Obama-Era Clean Power Plan which restricts Carbon dioxide emissions at coal-fired plants, and a lifting of the ban on the federal leasing of land for coal production.
Luke Popovich, a spokesman for the National Mining Association, acknowledged Trump's efforts would not return the coal industry to its "glory days", but offered some hope. But there is much more we can, and should, be doing to provide regulatory relief. He was also an adviser on energy policy to New York's Democratic Governor Andrew Cuomo.
As expected, the executive order prompted criticism from environmentalist groups and acclaim from business leaders and workers in the energy sector.

And, finally, China wants to be a global superpower, and it has faced its share of diplomatic disagreements and tension, for example, over its - over maritime tensions in the South China Sea or over its relationship with North Korea.
MARTIN: Can you just elaborate on that? Clearly it is time for Mr Turnbull et al to listen to the people. China claims it is devoted to sticking to the UN Paris Agreement regardless of what moves Trump makes.
SIVARAM: This is not great. Addressing climate change should be no different.
