The message was hardly subtle: coal miners at the Environmental Protection Agency.

On Tuesday afternoon, President Trump went to the headquarters of the E.P.A. to sign an executive order on environmental regulations. That executive order directs the agency to begin the legal process of repealing and replacing the clean power plan, the centerpiece of President Barack Obama’s policies to fight global warming.

On today’s episode:

• President Obama’s policies on the environment spelled the end for the coal industry. Now President Trump is promising to restore thousands of coal jobs and do away with Obama’s legacy on climate change. We speak with Coral Davenport, who covers energy and the environment for the Times.

• This afternoon Britain’s prime minister, Theresa May, delivers a letter to the president of the European Council notifying him that after 44 years of membership, her country is leaving the E.U. I called Peter Goodman, a Times reporter in London, in anticipation of today’s news.

Background reading:

• How some of President Obama’s signature climate policies have fared so far under the Trump administration.

• The New York Times’s fact-check of Mr. Trump’s claims on energy and jobs.

• As “Brexit” nears, Scotland votes for one of its own.
