“France is your nation,” Macron concluded in a video posted to Facebook on Feb. 9, that has been viewed 19.5 million times. The video came across almost like an offer of asylum for a persecuted class. Does Macron really think that climate change believers will be consigned to re-education camps?
In the video, the newly-elected French president expressed his eternal faith in human-caused climate change. while criticizing Trump. “I do know how your new president now has decided to jeopardize your budget, your initiatives, as he is extremely skeptical of climate change,” he said, adding, “I have no doubt about climate change, and how committed we have to be regarding this issue.”
“I want all those who today embody innovation and excellence in the United States to hear what we say: From now on, from next May, you will have a new homeland, France,” Macron said.
Macron, of course, has no problem with actual persecution of scientists skeptical of human-caused climate change. Like what happened to Dr. John Christy at the University of Alabama, who believes his office was “targeted” for gunfire during the March for Science in April. Or when former Attorney General Loretta Lynch encouraged state attorneys general to prosecute those whose science counters the official Climate Change Church.
France, under Macron, is absolutely okay if a liberal American administration locked up climate change heretics.
For what it’s worth, I offer my advice and counsel to American climate change scientists who feel that their bubble is being burst by President Trump because we refuse to eat bugs or dismantle all the technological progress of the last 2,000 years in the name of alarmist, junk science that crosses the border into religious fervor.
My advice: Go.
