(CNSNews.com) - Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D.-Mass.) sent out a Tweet on Thursday evening that linked to a New York Times story about the Trump administration loosening regulations on methane and said that “climate change is an existential crisis.”

“Climate change is an existential crisis,” said Warren. “We should be enforcing and strengthening our environmental regulations—not rolling them back.”

The Aug. 29 New York Times headline she linked to was headlined: “Curbs on Methane, Potent Greenhouse gas, to be Relaxed in U.S."

“The Trump administration laid out on Thursday a far-reaching plan to cut back on the regulation of methane emissions, a major contributor to climate change,” said the story in the Times.

“The Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed rule aims to eliminate federal requirements that oil and gas companies install technology to detect and fix methane leaks from wells, pipelines and storage facilities,” it said. “It would also reopen the question of whether the E.P.A. had the legal authority to regulate methane as a pollutant.”
