Protesters Laugh Out Trump Admin Official Pushing Fossil Fuels at U.N. Climate Talks

Democracy Now! was in the room when indigenous and youth leaders disrupted an event Monday hosted by Trump administration officials promoting fossil fuels and nuclear interests at the U.N. climate talks in Katowice, Poland. Wells Griffith, special assistant to the president for international energy and environment, represented the U.S. at the event. Griffith said in his remarks, “We strongly believe that no country should have to sacrifice economic prosperity or energy security in pursuit of environmental sustainability.” Moments later, nearly a hundred protesters began laughing, drowning out Griffith, calling the panel a “joke” and taking over the event to denounce fossil fuels.
