French President Emmanuel Macron just launched a website dedicated to combatting climate change, and he’s calling it “Make Our Planet Great Again.” The site went live one week after President Macron delivered an EPIC speech to US citizens following President Trump’s horrific announcement that we are withdrawing from the Paris Accord. In the speech, he invited all scientists, engineers and citizens who want to create a better world to consider France their second homeland.
The website is designed to outline the Paris Accord, how it works and why it is a worldwide initiative. On its About page:
OUR JOB: TO HELP YOU COME WORK WITH US ON OUR COMMON CHALLENGES. Our commitment is ancient: France has always been a leader in the advancement of human rights and has left its mark in our common history. Our new challenge? Climate change.
France is a driving force of science and technology in Europe, strongly involved in the H2020 program. France‘s laboratories are particularly active and among the world leaders in several scientific domains: non-exhaustive examples include a leading position in climate modeling intercomparison exercises, earth observation as part of the ESA, advanced solar photovoltaics, and breakthrough energy storage solutions.
In December 2015, France hosted the first universal international agreement aiming to keep global warming well below 2 °C.
France is becoming an innovative hub of science, technology and progress.
You may know our research hubs, such as La Sorbonne or Paris-Saclay. These are the places you have to come work in to develop new initiatives for our planet.
Faced with the climatic skepticism of the new government of the United States, President Emmanuel Macron invited American scientists to come work in France.
As a candidate and then as the President of France, he invited every responsible citizen to come to France in order to Make Our Planet Great Again.
That’s why we launched this website for you.
