Here's the best piece I've seen on the topic of what a Trump Administration can and cannot do to the Environmental Protection Agency. EPA cannot be dismantled without approval of both houses of Congress, but a slow death by a thousand cuts is certainly a possibility. Things that are very easy for Trump to do? Withdraw from the Paris Agreement or even the UNFCCC itself and rescind any and all executive orders. Things that will require a lot more time and effort to undo? Any regulations that have already been approved, including the Clean Power Plan (if it survives the courts).
