Former White House Photographer Pete Souza is back at trolling President Donald Trump: This time, it’s about the Paris Climate Accord.

Souza, who has a storied history of trolling Trump, posted a series of photographs of former President Barack Obama in various scenic areas of the United States, captioned with the lyrics of “This Land Is Your Land.”

Souza started with a letter Obama signed accepting the landmark climate agreement—which Trump decided to withdraw from on Thursday. Trump’s decision has been criticized by several world leaders and climate scientists.

“He tried. But we failed our children,” Souza wrote under the first photo.

What followed were a number of made-for-Instagram shots of Obama and his family across scenic areas of the United States.

Here they are:

As of 12:15pm ET, Souza was not even done with the second stanza of the classic patriotic tune. You can expect more Obama-in-the-environment photos to come.
