Astronaut Trolls Trump By Taking The Paris Climate Accord To Space

By Mark Pygas

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."
