In a smart move, France is offering US climate scientists four-year grants if they move to France to compete their research there. What better way to respond to tRump's withdrawal form the Paris agreement?

Applications can be processed via the Make Our Planet Great Again website, where the scientists can also find practical advice on visas and anything else to do with moving to France. It's bound to be an attractive proposition, aside from displaying how an actual democratic republic works:

“You will be able to stay in France at least for the duration of the grant, and longer if you are granted a permanent position. There is no restriction on your husband / wife working in France. If you have children, note that French public schools are free, and the tuition fees of universities and 'grandes écoles' are very low compared to the American system.”

Except California, Massachusetts, New York etc - all the states with the top universities and research budgets way in excess of anything available in France - will continue their research into climate change.

Which, of course, will have absolutely no impact on the symbolism of Macron's move.

Yes, it is an attempt to steal the "Leader of the Western world" crown from Merkel now that the US has let it slip.
No harm in it, could have very positive outcome for all of us if the top nations compete to be more noble and lead for progress.

I assume the grants are conditional on supporting the remarkable "consensus" that no other area of science manages to enjoy.

This is it, it doesn't matter if CA/NY etc are doing the right thing, as they are by far the biggest emitters.

Presumably these scientists will be flying to France? And if they have family and friends in the US it'll be several transatlantic flights between France and home every year. Maybe stay in the US and keep their carbon footprint to a minimum.

I'd wonder what Emmanuel Macron's own carbon footprint is like?

I've had about of being lectured on climate change these past few years by limousine liberals who send the children on gap yahs to South America and south east Asia, don't think twice about flying from Europe to New York and have two or three cars in the driveway.

France is a Chinese hoax!

Still,why not they will love him in book face and maybe some people get grants that they were going to get anyway.

Lets see how many go. Macron's idol is Merkel, Her support is crumbling. We are seeing a collapse in support for greens worldwide.

Alex Salmond gone in Scotland. Greens got only one seat in the UK. That 650 : 1. Trump, Brexit were all hammers in green votes. Its not a vote catcher. I don't know if any scientists will travel, but government subsidies are attractive. What will they do? build more wind farms, a few solar farms and impose more taxes on the French people.

The US fall in CO2 emissions since 2000 is similar to that of Holland and Sweden.

The United States is the largest country to experience multiple consecutive years in which economic growth has been “decoupled” from growth in carbon dioxide emissions. From 2010 to 2012, energy-related carbon dioxide emissions declined by 6 percent (from 5.58 to 5.23 billion metric tons), while GDP grew by 4 percent (from $14.8 to $15.4 trillion).

France has a lot of nuclear power, cheapest in Europe for electricity. So they can drive that up to make it expensive
