Donald Trump is set to announce his intention to pull out of the Paris Accord this morning, a global climate agreement that virtually every country in the world has signed up for. The move is seen as flatly idiotic by anyone with a modicum of common sense and desire to see humans flourish on planet Earth.

Trump is expected to say that, “The Accord was negotiated poorly by the Obama Administration and signed out of desperation.” Which is completely idiotic. Why did the agreement get such universal approval? Not only is it the right thing to do, it was largely symbolic in that it wasn’t binding in absolutely any way.
We’re all so screwed.
