While the United States remains divided along party lines on climate change, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada is on the side of the vast majority of scientists who believe that human activity is having a devastating effect on the Earth's climate.
Just days after President Donald Trump pulled the United States out of the Paris Climate Accord, Trudeau hit the waters of Niagra-on-the-Lake in Ontario to mark World Environment Day on Monday. And of course, since he's so smooth, he casually kayaked up to a family watching the event from their home to discuss climate change.
"The future is still bright for those who have the courage to confront hard truths, and the confidence to stay the course," Trudeau said after the event. "Canada will not back down from its commitment to fight climate change - and we are not alone. Around the world, nearly every country is on our side. Inaction is not an option. We can't walk away from the reality of climate change."
And yes, Twitter was impressed.
