  1. The EU hasn’t exactly been voting ‘divest’ lately.

  2. He’s a world leader with the best intelligence in the world, he shouldn’t need to see a melting glacier like Boomer Susan down the street to know that climate change is real and critical.

  3. So, with COVID19 and climate change, we need to fight two “fights of the century”. Simultaneously. Got it.

    Luckily for us, we’ve got rock-solid leadership, an engaged and educated population, and, at least in the US, a “we’re all in this together!” attitude.

    Yeah, we should be fine.

  4. we must sanction and embargo climate betraying countries like Russia, Poland, etc

  5. Get ready for another century of very fancy French greenwashing.

  6. How “fight of all human history?”

  7. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](http://www.rfi.fr/en/wires/20200213-macron-urges-fight-century-after-visit-retreating-glacier) reduced by 75%. (I’m a bot)

    > French President Emmanuel Macron on Thursday urged the "Fight of the century" to combat climate change and preserve the environment, as he visited an iconic Alpine glacier at risk from global warming.

    > On a high-profile visit to the foot of Mont Blanc, France's highest mountain, in the heart of the Alps, Macron was taken to the Mer de Glace, a valley glacier which has awed travellers for centuries.

    > Reverting later to a suit and tie for a speech in the Alpine resort of Chamonix, Macron said the search for a new way for humans to live that leaves less impact on the environment "Will be the fight of the century".

  8. Let’s fight by taxing trillions of dollars! the public is literally protesting for us to take their money! All because of this naturally occurring cyclical climate change that we are using to capitalize on people’s fears!

  9. Why? Racing to the first French surrender of the 21st century?
