Fox's Gutfeld mocks late night hosts for planned 'climate night'

Fox News's Greg Gutfeld poked fun at hosts of late night shows on network and cable television who plan to participate Wednesday in a joint effort they're calling "Climate Night." 

"Hey all, its Climate Night! When comedy is trumped by virtue signaling! And therefore: no longer comedy! its just the elite parroting assumptions that keep them elite," Gutfeld said in a tweet Tuesday night. "These aren't comics; they're teachers pets. at least put up a fight, guys. stop it. it's sad to watch."

During the one-night event, the shows said they would focus on climate change and issues of environmental sustainability. 

"I don't want to die," Kimmel said of why he's participating, according to CNN. Fallon joked: "In the interest of recycling, please use whatever Jimmy Kimmel said." 
 
The idea for a "Climate Night" came from former "Daily Show" and "Patriot Act" lead showrunner Steve Bodow, the outlet reported. 
 
"Late-night hosts reflect our national conversation even more than Russian Twitter bots set it — so this incredible group of shows coming together makes a statement about the scale and urgency of the world's hottest problem," said. 
 
Gutfeld, who often serves as a co-host of "The Five," began hosting his own late-night show on Fox News in April.
