We held an “emergency rally” in the sanctuary city of Syracuse, NY, today, less than two hours after the 45th president of the United States pulled the world’s biggest polluter out of the Paris climate agreement.

As unconscionable — and politically unwise — as this action was, we will survive it. He won’t. The scowling, miserable tweeter-in-chief’s latest exercise in disregarding facts, reality, decency, normality, etc. will only serve to do him in, politically.
He may realize this some day soon at 3 a.m., when we will likely see further evidence of his inner turmoil and intellectual deficiencies in 140 characters or less.
Fast forward to 2021: Mar-A-Lago is under water. A new American president is healing diplomatic rifts, putting rational policies into place, acting like an adult. And we can take a deep breath.
