Today, by his actions and statements in regard to the Paris Accord, the President of the United States did the following:
Surrendered the US mantle of leader of the Free World...to China.
Doomed the planet to exceed the 2 degree Celsius threshold for warming that scientists have warned us not to pass.
Relegated the United States to the sidelines on the international stage until we regain our senses. We will be forever diminished regardless.
Made it inevitable that there will be great suffering in the lifetimes of our sons, daughters and grandchildren.
Disregarded the voices of all of the sane people in the room and instead relied on extremists and zealots.
Made it clear that the United States is past its zenith and headed in the direction of the Roman Empire, the British Empire and the Soviet Union. How long until we are on the ash heap of history?
Brought China and Europe closer together. At some point, they will decide they don't need us.
Because the man is not sane. There, I said it. Our President is not sane and represents a clear and present danger to Americans everywhere.
Because the Republicans in Congress are more fascinated with a fleeting legislative opportunity than they are with their constitutional and patriotic duty to act.
We have a moral responsibility to resist. We can cling to the hope that we can survive and escape this insanity and through great effort correct the damage that was done today, both to our international reputation and to our collective future on this planet.
