On Wednesday, Late Night host Seth Meyers focused his "A Closer Look" segment on President-elect Donald Trump's climate change denial, calling it one of the most "dire consequences of a Donald Trump presidency." Trump erroneously believes that climate change was "created by and for the Chinese," leading Meyers to quip that Trump was "created by and for the Russians."

To make matters worse, Trump has named Rick Perry as the head of the Department of Energy, an agency that the Texas governor had previously said he would eliminate if he were president (after forgetting that it existed). Trump also picked "loyal ally of oil and gas companies" Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt as the head of the Environmental Protection Agency.
