[See NewsBusters for more.] On Friday's edition of MSNBC Live host Katy Tur took the opportunity to talk about President Biden's environmental agenda while also implying that former President Trump and Republican policies more generally are to blame for natural disasters. After her opening monologue on the subject, she welcomed Greta Thunberg to pressure Biden from the far-left.

After giving a history lesson on previous Republican presidents' environmental policies, such as Richard Nixon creating the EPA, Tur argued that things have changed, "But after a massive disinformation push by the fossil fuel industry, including heavy lobbying and financial contributions to GOP Lawmakers and some Democrats, there has been a shift toward devastating denial and inaction even in the face of scientific consensus."
