Climate changes: Macron welcomes American researchers in France

The new French President welcomes American researchers working on climate changes and environmental issues

Take a look at this short video of the newly elected President of France, Emmanuel Macron. In this video, Emmanuel Macron invites American climate changes researchers threatened by Trump’s agenda to move to France. “We like innovation, we want innovative people”.

President Macron encourages Americans to help mitigate climate change, a controversial topic in today’s politics.  In effort to merge the ventures in France and America, he welcomes professionals of varying competencies to combat climate change in France.

Emmanuel Macron’s climate policies include phasing out coal power and doubling renewable capacity by 2022, and raising the carbon price to €100 a tonne by 2030.

He has also proposed using trade sanctions at an EU level against countries that do not respect the bloc’s environmental standards. That could put pressure on the Trump administration to conform with climate objectives and the UK to avoid weakening environmental protections during Brexit negotiations.
