The members of Colorado’s Democrat delegation is having a meltdown on Twitter over President Trump’s decision to exit the Paris Agreement.
We are outraged too, that we have completely forgotten the details of this seemingly important thingamabob Obama did to us just two years ago.
I hope President Trump listens to the millions of Americans worried about climate change and recognizes the broad support for this agreement

We googled forever to find out exactly what it does and found a lot of bureaucratic mumbo jumbo about how the United Nations is going to solve Climate Change, in accord with a bunch of other nations who probably signed on expecting the U.S. would pay them money for something.

And then we remembered, it was that treaty that Obama refused to submit to the U.S. Senate for ratification. So this should be fairly simple for Trump to get us out of this deal.
The U.S. News and World Report explains why this is a victory for America and for freedom, and why Democrats are a bunch of babies throwing hissy fits.
You’re going to hear otherwise a lot over the next few days. Don’t you believe it. After all was said and done, the Paris agreement would have been an economically-intrusive, job-killing experiment in fooling the industrialized countries whose economic prosperity keeps the world moving.
Even if every signatory kept to its promise, the change in temperature the climate models predicted would be so miniscule you couldn’t detect it as a movement of the mercury in the thermometer hanging outside your mother’s kitchen window.
