EPA Chief Pruitt: U.S. Should 'Exit' Paris Climate Agreement

Pruitt says to exit paris climate accordEnvironmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt said on Thursday that the United States should exit the Paris climate agreement. The comments are his strongest yet on a question that has divided the Donald Trump administration, even as it seeks to roll back the nation's commitment to act on climate change.

"It's a bad deal for America," he said. "It's an 'America second, third or fourth' kind of approach."

TVNL Comment:  The appoointment of Pruitt, an outspoken Climate Change denier, as head of the EPA was only one of the insane and ignorant choices made by the Clown in the WH.

Great Barrier Reef: Two-thirds damaged in 'unprecedented' bleaching

Coral reefs in grave dangerUnprecedented coral bleaching in consecutive years has damaged two-thirds of Australia's Great Barrier Reef, aerial surveys have shown.
