Arnold Schwarzenegger and Emmanuel Macron: Let’s Make The Planet Great Again?

As a counter rebuttal to U.S. President Trump’s withdrawal from the 2015 Paris Climate Deal, could former action star and California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and newly-elected French president Emmanuel Macron “make the planet great again”?

A lot of the world’s head-of-states and environmental ministers and secretaries might have been dismayed by U.S. President Donald J. Trump’s withdrawal last month from the historic 2015 Paris Climate Deal – which was signed by 195 countries and ratified by 147 aiming to reduce carbon emissions and contain global warming. Could President Trump’s climate change denial risking the long-term future of our planet? Thankfully, a recent 10-second clip that represents a “new hope” to those dismayed by U.S. President Donald J. Trump’s recent announcement to withdraw from the 2015 Paris Climate Deal runs for full duration with the caption: “With President Macron, a great leader!” It ends with President Macron bringing out his new catchphrase: “We will deliver together to make the planet great again.” 

The good news is, is that the pact made in the recent Sorbonne University meeting could eventually be put to the United Nations for adoption and to impose legally-binding obligations on signatory states, its drafters – comprising legal experts from several countries – have said. Attendees at the Sorbonne include former United Nations chief Ban Ki Moon. It was chaired by the former French Prime Minister Laurent Fabius who also chaired the 2015 conference on climate change. 

Many world leaders are quite agog at President Trump’s recent decision to withdraw from the historic Paris Climate Deal given his mercantilist background. Since 2014, renewable energy systems like wind turbines and solar photovoltaic and solar thermal electricity generation business are already 3 times as profitable as their coal and crude oil based counterparts and in the United States alone, the renewable energy industry employ 3-times as much workers currently employed in the crude oil extraction and coal mining sector. And many experts predict that automobiles fueled by crude oil sourced fuels could become as rare as 1930s era automobiles still running today by the year 2030.
