Success: France Offers Grants for Americans Fighting Global Warming

Target: French President Emmanuel Macron

Goal: Applaud the French President for honoring campaign pledges to invite U.S. climate scientists and innovators to France.

During his campaign, the newly elected French President Emmanuel Macron had promised he would offer those in the U.S. working to fight climate change “a second homeland” in France. Many had hoped Macron would honor this pledge, as evidenced by community petitions such as this one on ForceChange. Now it would appear that Macron is placing science and the environment at the forefront of his new administration, with the new “Make Our Planet Great Again” website, which offers four-year grants for American scientists, educators, students and entrepreneurs working toward solving global warming.

In light of Trump’s recent decision to leave the Paris Agreement, this is an especially important and timely commitment. Many researchers have suffered under the Trump administration’s regressive stance on climate science, facing budget cuts which have threatened their continued work.

We should applaud Macron’s decision to support the important work and research of climate scientists and those working on innovative solutions to combat global warming. If the U.S. is not willing to provide the resources needed, it not only admirable, but vital that others step up to offer a platform for continued research. Sign this petition to thank Macron for taking this important step toward finding climate change solutions.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear President Macron,

During your campaign, you had pledged to offer American scientists and others working on solutions for global warming “a second homeland” in France. Through your newly launched “Make Our Planet Great Again” site, you are offering hope for potentially thousands of U.S. climate scientists and innovative thinkers to continue their work with the resources they need. These grants are not only generous, they are a necessary signal to the rest of the world that climate science matters and we must all do what we can for our planet’s future.

My hope is that this action will help inspire other nations to do what they can to support science and continued research on climate change worldwide. Thank you for honoring your earlier pledge, and for extending scientists in America the support that they need.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
