Trump’s Appointees Pose Direct Threat to Planet’s Future

Donald Trump’s appointments to the State Department and the EPA pose a direct threat to the health of the planet. We’ll turn to Lindsay Meiman of 350.org to discuss how Rex Tillerson and Scott Pruitt could undo progress on the climate. And, a number of young Americans who have launched a lawsuit against the government over global warming could prove to be the biggest legal challenge Trump will face on the issue. We’ll speak with Phillip Gregory, a lawyer for the kids. Finally, the racist, sexist, attention-seeking, Breitbart columnist and Trump supporter Milo Yiannopoulos has had to contend with students at UC Berkeley and UCLA turning him away as a speaker. We’ll get a report from our correspondent Meleiza Figueroa about the Berkeley protests.
