Gov. Jerry Brown and other Democratic officials in California launched their 'formal opposition' on Friday to the Trump administration's new greenhouse gas emission rules.

"Wrong way to go, Donald," Brown said to reporters at an I-5 overlook.

The state of California has officially filed 415 pages of testimonies against the Trump administration, according to the chairwoman of the California Air Resources Board, Mary Nichols. They aim to attack the "completely unjustified and illegal proposal" over greenhouse gas emissions and fuel-economy standards.

The plan according to President Trump is to end California's "advanced" clean car regulations, and to loosen the state's extremely strict guidelines on air pollution.
