Friday Short Cuts

Sen. Mike Lee says, “Pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement is absolutely the right decision for the United States economy.”

Upright: “Our president is choosing to put American jobs and American consumers first. Our president is choosing to put American energy and American industry first. And by his action today, President Trump is choosing to put the forgotten men and women first.” —Vice President Mike Pence

For the record: “The American people did not vote for President Trump so that American taxpayers could send billions of dollars overseas to establish a global crony capitalist slush fund. Pulling out of the Paris Climate Agreement is absolutely the right decision for the United States economy.” —Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT)

Re: The Left: “If you’re blown up at an Ariana Grande concert, [European political leaders] say, ‘Get used to it. That’s just the way it is. We can’t do anything about it. But if you want us to lower the thermostat of the planet by a third of a degree in the year 2100, that we can do.’ … It’s bonkers.” —Mark Steyn

Al-pha Jackass: “Removing the United States from the Paris Agreement is a reckless and indefensible action. It undermines America’s standing in the world and threatens to damage humanity’s ability to solve the climate crisis in time.” —Al Gore

Braying Jackass: “Withdrawing from the Paris Accord devastates our economy, our planet, and our children. This isn’t leadership. It’s an insult to humanity.” —DNC Chief Tom Perez

Keen sense of the obvious: “It’s only 2017, so projecting the greenhouse-gas emissions of disparate countries over many decades, and how they will change the planet’s climate, is no exact science.” —The Washington Post

And last: “It is possible for a person to hold simultaneously that a) man is having some effect on the climate; b) that our discussion of this effect is prone toward alarmism; and c) that what to do about this problem is a matter of legitimate and necessary debate. Indeed, an awful lot of people hold exactly these positions. Do those hyperbolizing over the withdrawal from the Paris Accord understand that? It seems that they do not.” —Charles C.W. Cooke
