Fox News Host: Trump Called Me for Advice on Paris Agreement
Kimberly Guilfoyle (Co-Host): I don't think this is a deal that anybody should be crying about. Like we said, it's non-binding, and the United States is already a clean energy, oil and gas leader. So, we can keep doing what we're doing, we can keep reducing our emissions. Why would we in fact put ourselves at an economic disadvantage, giving and subsidizing an economic windfall to other countries, in sort of a climate redistribution of wealth scheme?

I think he did the brave and courageous thing, and in fact, I told him that this morning at 8 a.m., when he called. And I spoke to him about it, and this was something very much so on his mind, but he seemed like ...
Greg Gutfeld (Co-Host): Wait a second, who called you?
Guilfoyle: The president.
Dana Perino (Co-Host): To ask about climate change?
Gutfeld: Why did he call you?
Guilfoyle: Climate change, taxes. The Five.
Gutfeld: I think that you buried the lede here.
Perino: You just tried to slip that in there, just like maybe it happens all the time.
Gutfeld: I know, yeah, the president called me at 8 in the morning.
Guilfoyle: It said "unknown," I thought it was Fox News. But then he said he loves The Five, "terrific show." Said to say hello to all of you.

Aerial photos of the Sierra Nevada — the long mountain range stretching down the spine of California — showed rust-colored swathes following the state's record-breaking five-year drought that ended in 2016. The 100 million dead trees were one of the most visible examples of the ecological toll the drought had wrought.
Now, a few years later, we're starting to learn about how smaller, less noticeable species were affected.

Disinfectants and cleaners claiming to sanitize against the novel coronavirus have started to flood the market, raising concerns for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which threatened legal recourse against retailers selling unregistered products, according to The New York Times.
The global coronavirus pandemic has thrown our daily routine into disarray. Billions are housebound, social contact is off-limits and an invisible virus makes up look at the outside world with suspicion. No surprise, then, that sustainability and the climate movement aren't exactly a priority for many these days.
