Premiered: April 15, 2019 | 0:02:57

As one of the world’s biggest polluters, why does the United States – particularly the Republican Party – also embrace a policy of climate denialism? President Trump pulled the US out of the Paris Climate Accords, and he’s hired a former coal lobbyist to head up his Environmental Protection Agency. Nathaniel Rich tracks this climate denialism over the last 40 years in his new book, “Losing Earth,”.
