On Wednesday morning, California Governor Gavin Newsom, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra and Mary Nichols, the state's top clean air regulator, appeared at a news conference in Sacramento and denounced Trump's action as a "political vendetta" that risks damage to the climate and public health and would leave the U.S. auto industry behind in a global race to develop electric vehicle technology.

U.S. President Donald Trump the state of California went to war on Wednesday over who should set the standards in the United States for vehicle emissions and electric cars, foreshadowing a legal battle over environmental policy issues that will affect the auto industry and consumers.

In a morning flurry of tweets, Trump confirmed he will revoke California's authority to require automakers to build cleaner vehicles than federal requirements demand.

The Republican president is counting on voters in truck-friendly heartland states to carry him to re-election in 2020, and he portrayed his decision as a win for consumers.

Trump tweeted that vehicles would be "far less expensive" and "substantially SAFER" - claims California officials rejected.

Trump, who is in California this week, urged automakers to back the action, which could also eliminate electric vehicle mandates in a dozen states that follow California's regulatory lead.

The announcement will not immediately lead to revised emissions requirements, but the Trump administration plans to announce this autumn a separate rule to dramatically roll back Obama-era fuel-efficiency standards agreed with California, advancing a multipronged attack on the state's efforts to reshape the mix of vehicles driven by Americans.

Vitamin A, cold temperatures help in burning fat faster, suggests study [Video]

Vitamin A, cold temperatures help in burning fat faster, suggests study

Cold temperatures and increased vitamin A encourage burning of fat, suggests a new study published in the journal of Molecular Metabolism. According to a report by Fox News, the journal of Molecular Metabolism explored that cold temperature and vitamin A are capable of converting white fat, storing excess calories to brown fat, which "stimulates fat burning and heat generation." During the research, cold temperatures were applied to mice, which resulted in increased vitamin A production and higher fat burning. According to the findings, Vitamin A reserves are mostly stored in the liver and because cold temperatures increase the levels of Vitamin A and its blood transporter, retinol-binding protein, it can convert white to brown fat, thus encouraging faster fat burning. The above-mentioned findings are efficient in providing a significant solution to various weight-gain related problems like obesity. However, one of the study's lead researchers, Florian Kiefer from the Medical University of Vienna, cautioned against taking large quantities of vitamin A supplements in an effort to lose weight.
