The Weather Channel is slamming President Trump for pulling out of the Paris climate deal.
The current homepage of its website was revamped on Thursday to include a link to a livestream of Trump’s official announcement on the deal.
The front page also displayed multiple articles with headlines that bluntly state why his decision will damage the planet.
The first headline reads “Still Don’t Care? Proof You Should Care Now,” with a photo showing flooding. Other headlines titled “…and More Proof…” “…And Even More Proof…” accompany images of a collapsing ice shelf, forests growing in Antarctica, rising sea levels in California and glaciers melting in Glacier National Park.

Twitter commended the site’s trolling skills:

Trump on Thursday announced that he is pulling the U.S. out of the Paris climate accord, which binds nearly 200 countries to take steps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Environmental groups lambasted the decision.
The Sierra Club mocked the decision on Twitter, tweeting: “Congratulations, President Bannon,” a reference to White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon, who reportedly encouraged Trump to withdraw from the deal.
Congratulations, President Bannon. #ParisAgreement

Billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer said withdrawing would be a “traitorous act of war.”

Neil deGrasse Tyson condemned Trump’s ignorance on all things science:
If I and my advisors had never learned what Science is or how & why it works, then I’d consider pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord too.

Even Vatican called Trump’s Paris exit “a slap in the face.”
