From the Tuesday Morning Jolt:
The Opulent Conference About Reducing Carbon Emissions
Meanwhile, our leaders get together as role models of sacrifice and modesty at the Paris climate change summit, gathering for dinner at the roughly $275-to-$350-per-head L’Ambroisie restaurant. No word on whether President Obama had the $36 sorbet.

“One of the enemies that we’ll be fighting at this conference is cynicism,” President Obama said at the conference. “If we act here, if we act now, if we place our own short-term interests behind the air that our young people will breathe, and the food that they will eat, and the water that they will drink, and the hopes and dreams that sustain their lives, then we won’t be too late for them.”
Keep fighting that cynicism, Mr. President!
