In his show Sunday night, John Oliver spent 20 minutes talking about President Trump’s decision to pull the United States out of the Paris Agreement. During the segment, Oliver called out Pittsburgh Mayor for his response to the decision, and state Senator Scott Wagner (R-York) for comments he made about climate change during a radio interview.
“Pittsburgh is the poster child of showing why the Paris Agreement is good economics for the United States and what we did today sets us back decades,” Peduto said in the clip the show used.
Oliver used Peduto to highlight what he views as the best response to the decision by the Trump administration, then quickly turned to Wagner, using a clip of him from a WHYY interview discussing global warming.
“The earth moves closer to the sun every year. We have more people. You know, humans have warm bodies. So is heat coming off? Things are changing, but I think we are, as a society, doing the best we can,” Wagner says in the clip.

Wagner, who is running for Governor, took the clip in good humor, releasing a Facebook video thanking Oliver for including him in his broadcast.
“John, listen, I just want to thank you for putting my oicture and my name on national TV. John, I’d love to go on your show sometime, you and I could have a lot of fun,” Wagner says in the video.
