Two Marses oppose Paris exit —
In a rare display of solidarity, both Marses, the planet and the candy company, expressed their dismay at the US exit from the Paris Agreement.
CEO of Mars, Inc. Grant Reid said, “Mars stands by the Paris Climate Agreement. We remain committed to work with all governments and our supply chain partners around the world to achieve the carbon reduction targets the planet needs.”
Valentine Michael Smith* the most famous citizen of Mars, had this to say:
“People of Earth, you need to grok the danger your planet faces. Continuing as you are will lead to the discorporation of all humans.”
“Why do the people of Mars care?” we asked.
“Because if you destroy your planet, you will want ours. You are already planning to visit us. Mars is a nice planet to visit, but we don’t want you to live there. We like our climate the way it is.”
