"@plasticfreemermaid: today i woke up frustrated af that Trump was toying with the world with his latest careless threat, but this time he's gone too far. Pulling out of the Paris Agreement. I took deep breaths, taught some yoga, came home & decided to talk to him face to face in my living room & figure out what the f he is thinking. as I predicted, he was not thinking much. with this rare opportunity of silence from Trump, I talked & talked & realised that each individual nation is rallying together to save the world, our world. it was kind of like an awkward, public, video journal. 🙈😂I went into it with rage & came out of it inspired & laughing! Within the 32 pages of the Paris Agreement, is empowerment of cities, regions, local authorities to take this on, scale up efforts & support actions to reduce emissions, to decrease vulnerability to adverse effects of climate change & cooperate internationally. I read this as an invitation to act personally. To stand with the Paris Agreement, not with Donny Trump. To stand with the many other nations who wish they could act with such flippancy as the US! To support the developing nations, to support my community, to rise, rise, RISE for this one planet we have that needs us right now, today! to make changes! Trump can tweet nonsensical covfefes at 2 am & continue acting as a buffoon. I am in charge of my impact, I am turing OFF the lights & jumping on my bicycle. Booyah Trump, you caveman. I stand with the Paris Agreement. I stand as a citizen of Earth. I matter. I am empowered. I am making a difference. & so can YOU. 💙"
