Seth Meyers Looks at Trump's Climate Change Picks

What exactly is going on with Trump's environmental plans?

In his 'A Closer Look' special segment, Seth Meyers examined what exactly is going on with Trump's environmental plans when he assumes the presidency.

He began by noting scientists have found 2016 to be the hottest year ever in history, making 16 of the 17 hottest years after 2000. "Of course, the other hottest year on record came in 1863, when Mary Todd Lincoln took a boob out at the Gettysburg Address."

Meyers recalled that in addition to this year being the hottest ever, Trump won the presidency and the Cubs won the World Series. "I'm pretty sure that's three out of the four horsemen of the apocalypse right there. If Dirty Grandpa wins Best Picture at the Oscars, we're done for."

Meyers also addressed how Ivanka Trump has met with both Leonardo DiCaprio and Al Gore to talk climate change policies. "She met with Leonardo DiCaprio first, and then Al Gore. That is the wrong order. I'll have the hot fudge sundae for dinner, and for dessert, a cold bag of peas."

Watch the full clip below:

Trump has tapped Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt as head of the Environmental Protection Agency and former Texas Governor Rick Perry as Secretary of Energy. Both are frightening choices--Pruitt has strong ties to gas and oil companies and Perry has outright mocked climate change as a result of human action.
