It {climate change} is one of the major issues of our time. It is already changing our daily lives, but it is global. Everyone is impacted.

Tonight I wish to tell the United States that France believes in you. The world believes in you. I know that you are a great nation. I know your history, our common history.

To all scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, responsible citizens who were disappointed by the decision of the president of the United States, I want to say that they will find in France a second homeland. I call on them, come and work here with us to work together on concrete solutions for our climate, our environment. I can assure you France will not give up the fight.
I reaffirm clearly that the Paris agreement remains irreversable and will be implemented, not just by France, but by all the other nations.

Across the coming hours I will have the opportunity to speak with our main partners to define a common strategy and to launch new initiatives.

I already know that I can count on them.

I call you to remain confident.

We will succeed.

Because we are fully committed.

Because wherever we live, whoever we are, we all share the same responsibility. Make our planet great again.

In a preceding speech in French, President Macron also told the American people tht “France believes in you, the world believes in you. Do not be deceived, on the climate there is no plan B because there is no planet B. So yes, we will continue,” adding that “Tonight the United States has turned its back on the world but France has not turned its back on the Americans.”
