Trump equals Reagan w/his withdrawal from the Paris deal

As President Jimmy Carter put up solar panels* @ the White House and Ronald Reagan
had the solar panels taken down in 1981 to show to his base that "we don't need that
hippy stuff." Can you imagine where we would be at now if we had stayed the course
and pushed clean green renewable energy for the past 36 years?

And now Trump has pulled out of the Paris Climate Agreement to show his base that
science and doing the right thing just don't matter.


* If I remember right they were solar water heaters
