Astronaut Trolls Trump By Taking The Paris Climate Accord To Space

Astronaut Trolls Trump By Taking The Paris Climate Accord To Space

President Donald Trump's decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Accord won't just impact the United States, it could add 0.3C to global temperatures by the end of the century. The decision has been met with condemnation throughout the world, and even from North Korea.

To put everything into perspective, French astronaut Thomas Pesquet decided to take a copy of the Paris Climate Accord with him on a 196-day stay on the International Space Station. He shared a photo on Twitter, along with a caption that took a jab at President Trump: "I took the #ParisAgreement to the ISS: from space, climate change is very real. Some could probably use the view #MakeOurPlanetGreatAgain." 

Pesquet's copy of the Paris Accord includes an inscription by former French president François Hollande, who was one of the driving forces behind the agreement. 

President Trump said that he hopes to renegotiate the accord, but many world leaders have said that won't happen. And while head of the Environmental Protection Agency Scott Pruitt has said that human activity contributes to global warming, Donald Trump famously suggested in the past that global warming may be a myth invented by the Chinese to undermine the United States

Unsurprisingly, people loved Pesquet's burn. 

Make our planet great again.
