Media properties focused on weather and the environment continue to hit back at President Trump after his decision to remove the U.S. from the Paris climate accord—with National Geographic announcing late Thursday that it was replacing all content on its homepage with stories published in the past few years about climate change.

The site leads with a large boldface headline, “Climate Change Is Real—And It’s Dangerous … Here’s The Evidence.” Through Friday, only climate-related stories will be posted on the homepage, including: Seven Things to Know About Climate Change, What the World Would Look Like if All the Ice Melted, Pictures Show Climate Change’s Dramatic Arctic Impact and 100 Practical Ways to Reverse Climate Change.

Also, National Geographic is making its climate-change documentary, Before the Flood, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, free to watch on from today to June 9.

The move follows the Weather Channel’s snarky headlines Thursday, grouped together on, responding to Trump.
