Meltdown

So now it's official; the US is out, and the reaction from the green brigade is...pretty much as expected:
Many Hollywood stars, politicians and other notable figures had already weighed in on Trump's expected move, criticizing the president for his anticipated action. When it was made official, though, more notables quickly took to Twitter to respond, as Democrats like Chuck Schumer, Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris and Adam Schiff bashed the Trump's decision.

Obama swiftly released a statement, reading in part: "A year and a half ago, the world came together in Paris around the first-ever global agreement to set the world on a low-carbon course and protect the world we leave to our children. ... The nations that remain in the Paris Agreement will be the nations that reap the benefits in job and industries created. I believe the United States of America should be at the front of the pack. But even in the absence of American leadership; even as this Administration joins a small handful of nations that reject the future; I'm confident that our states, cities, and businesses will step up and do even more to lead the way, and help protect for future generations the one planet we got."
President Trump is leading; he just doesn't think it should be done at the expense of the U.S....
