Donald Trump's choice of climate skeptic Myron Ebell to lead his EPA transition team has alarmed environmentalists, as have the president-elect's promises to withdraw from the Paris Agreement and promote fossil fuels like coal.

Annie Leonard (@AnnieMLeonard), executive director of Greenpeace USA, tells Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson that her organization will join with others to fight Trump's anti-regulation agenda using a variety of strategies — including nonviolent direct action.

This segment aired on November 15, 2016.
