Emmanuel Macron to US Climate Scientists Video

It’s No Surprise People Are Sharing a Video of Emmanuel Macron Subtly Dismissing Trump

Every day, the future of how the US will continue to fight climate change gets even more weary. It makes sense, then, why an older video of now-French-president-elect Emmanuel Macron is going viral again. In the video, Macron promises that France will keep its climate change initiatives and invites any US scientists who aren't welcome under the Trump administration to come to France instead.


The video, posted to Facebook on Feb. 9, shows Macron speaking in English to US scientists. He tells viewers he has two messages: the first is to French and European researchers, telling them he will preserve the budget to fight climate change to meet COP21 goals. His second message goes out to American scientists as Macron says, "Please come to France, you are welcome. It's your nation; we like innovation. We want innovative people. We want people working on climate change, energy, renewables, and new technologies." You can watch it ahead.

I have a message for you guys.

The video has more than 71,000 shares, 5,000 comments, and 5.1 million views. People are once again sharing it on social media since Macron has won. Welcome to the global fight against climate change, Macron — and be careful of Trump's handshakes.
