This Thursday, Rep Lauren Boebert (R-CO) introduced a bill to block the Paris Agreement, calling it a "job-killing amendment."
"My bill prohibits Congress from spending a single penny on the Paris Agreement until this treaty is ratified by the United States Senate. Joe Biden took an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution. If he wants to keep it, he must transmit the job-killing Paris Agreement to the U.S. Senate for ratification," Boebert stated.
In a tweet this Friday, Boebert invited some internet mockery when she declared that she works for her constituents, "not the people of Paris." In the comment thread that opened up beneath her tweet, many were quick to point out that the only thing French about the climate agreement is that Paris is the city it was signed in.
You should stop eating paint.

Treaty of Versailles, Treaty of Ghent, Geneva convention... really any peace treaty or diplomatic agreement ever.

The Paris Agreement is a legally binding international treaty on climate change. It was adopted by 196 Parties at COP 21 in Paris, on 12 December 2015 and entered into force on 4 November 2016. The agreement was signed in Paris. That's why they call it The Paris Agreement. pic.twitter.com/b1PathRu5y
