New French President backlashes Donald Trump on climate change

French President Macron on Friday responded to sudden exit of US leader Donald Trump from Paris Climate Change Agreement which had already been signed by 99% of world leaders.
Speaking with the press in English, President Macron addressed Trump directly with a lampoon of his campaign slogan to “make America great again”.
“On the climate there is no plan B because there is no planet B,” he said. This is a “mistake, both for the US and for our planet,” he continued.
Macron further offered refuge to American scientists, engineers and citizens who were disappointed by Trump’s announcement.
“They will find in France a second homeland. I call on them, come and work here with us, to work together on concrete solutions for our climate.”

He then concluded by reaffirming France’s commitment to the agreement thus: “Wherever we live, whoever we are, we all share the same responsibility: make our planet great again.”
