The front pages of the world’s newspapers tomorrow will undoubtedly feature photos of world leaders hugging and shaking hands to celebrate the reaching of a deal at the climate change talks in Paris. President Obama, anxious to play some golf in Hawaii, broke into the news at 5:30 p.m. to make a statement to the American people and share how this agreement will benefit his grandchildren someday should one of his children be punished with a child.
This is huge: Almost every country in the world just signed on to the #ParisAgreement on climate change—thanks to American leadership.

That’s funny to see the words “American” and “leadership” put next to each other like that, especially by the president.
Definitely played a part, but @BarackObama not so sure if you “should” take so much credit for this one 😉 #COP21

What we won’t see on the news is the reaction of reporters to the agreement.
Reporters react the to the #ParisAgreement as if they're watching the World Cup. https://t.co/J1dG1qytYl

@BecketAdams @MSLJeconomist Please tell me those are green peace activists and not reporters.

Are these reporters? It certainly looks like a media room, and the Vine was posted by Miranda Johnson, who writes for The Economist as M.S.L.J. and very likely would have been monitoring the proceedings with other journalists.

If you click on the link in T. Becket Adam’s tweet you’ll find the tweet comparing the agreement to a World Cup victory has been deleted, but fortunately, SooperMexican has a screenshot on his website.
@MSLJeconomist @TheEconomist are those really grown men and woman jumping up and down like that? Lol

@MSLJeconomist Government hacks and spokespersons not reporters. The free press is dead in the world.#climatechangefraud #fascists

Cool. Looks like a bunch of lapdogs/cheerleaders to me. @MSLJeconomist

@MSLJeconomist too bad the treaty isn't worth the paper it's printed on, especially since it won't pass congressional muster here.

@BecketAdams Well, they know it means the end of Western Civilization. They won.
