Donald Trump is courting controversy with his latest pick for a high level position on the environment.
The US President announced vocal climate change sceptic Kathleen Hartnett White was his chosen person to run the White House Council on Environmental Quality.

Ms Hartnett White is not inexperienced in environmental advocacy, having previously chaired the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. She was a candidate for the head of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) before the position was given to another climate sceptic, Scott Pruitt.
Ms Hartnett White does not believe in man-made climate change, instead arguing that the sun may be the cause of the earth's temperature rising.
In an interview with the Washington Post in November 2016 she said: "Carbon dioxide has none of the characteristics of a pollutant that could harm human health."
In an opinion piece published last year she suggested CO2 "may not be the cause of warming but instead a symptom of it".
Carbon dioxide is widely believed to be a contributor to climate change causing the heat to become trapped in the atmosphere.
