The Margin: Business leaders join environmentalists in throwing up their hands as Trump quits Paris pact

Environmentalists reacted with anger and dismay to President Trump’s announcement Thursday in the White House Rose Garden that he’d opted to pull the U.S. out of the Paris climate agreement. Business leaders, including top executives of GE GE, +1.24% , MSFT, +0.37% Walt Disney Co. DIS, +0.25% and Tesla TSLA, -0.19% , were equally quick to express displeasure on social media:

Disappointed with today’s decision on the Paris Agreement. Climate change is real. Industry must now lead and not depend on government.
