MACRON’s VISION, EFFORTS AND ACTION TO MAKE OUR PLANET GREAT AGAIN
By Cigdem Yorgancıoğlu 7 th Jul 2017

PREFACE:

 

As a generic, the purpose of the essay is to give insight about Macron’s environmental perspective vision and action. Investigating answers of the following question; If Macron's policies compliant with his commitments and his manifesto “Make our Planet Great Again?"  

 

This study is further conceptualized in terms of the following two questions.

 “What is the motive of dispute between Trump and himself in terms of Paris Accord?”

“How he coordinates his statements and efforts with European Leaders in terms of Paris Accord”

 

Besides, the study will be focused on efforts and commitments of Macron ’in terms of Clean Tech, Climate Change in order to understand how he is marching toward his goals and commitments. For instance, during the election campaign, his Green commitments concerning the public investment was - 15 billion on energy to reach environmental targets entails: exodus within 5 years from coal-based energy production, shift towards alternative, renewable energy sources, and rise in carbon tax.

 

For better comprehension of the arguments, two of my study conducted [i]regarding the Energy and Climate vision of Macron “in Turkish and “Energy trump-No Trump Card of the President Trump” in English can be accessed from the following address respectively

Macron’s Nuclear Perspective

 

 

On 3rd May 2017, according to Reuter  French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron may delay plans to reduce the share of nuclear power in the French power mix and was considering a UK-style subsidy mechanism to build new nuclear reactors, a source close to the Macron campaign team said. An official spokesman for Macron said the candidate would stick to the policy outlined in his campaign platform, which specified he would respect the outgoing socialist government's target to decrease the share of nuclear in French power production to 50 percent by 2025 from about 75 percent now. Relaxing the deadline for reducing the country's reliance on nuclear power would be highly beneficial for state-owned EDF (EDF.PA), already struggling with high debt, which otherwise could be forced to close more than a dozen of its 58 reactors. A new subsidy mechanism for new nuclear plants would also allow the utility to build reactors at home in the coming decades, and could become an issue in an election campaign where energy has been overshadowed by globalization and immigration. He said the 2025 date was "not cast in stone" and Macron would be "pragmatic" about how and when France would cut the share of atomic energy. But the source said it was essential for the country to reduce its reliance on one single energy source for reasons of security of supply. An official spokesman for Macron said the candidate would not deviate from his campaign platform,

 

According to CNBC news based on Reuters, France's new energy minister Nicolas Hulot, a well-known environmentalist, will have to apply President Emmanuel Macron's policy on nuclear energy, the government said on May 18th 2017 Thursday after its first cabinet meeting. "A minister doesn't set conditions for a president or a prime minister," government spokesman Christophe Castaner told reporters, adding that Hulot will have to stick to Macron's programme. Shares in utility EDF fell after Hulot's appointment on Wednesday over fears the former TV presenter would seek to speed up a reduction in nuclear energy production in France's power mix, currently around 75 percent reported by Michel Rose.

 

 

On 5th July 2017, President Emmanuel Macron has spent several hours underwater aboard a nuclear submarine to signal commitment to France's nuclear deterrent.

During the visit to the submarine, "Le Terrible", off the Brittany coast, Mr Macron reportedly took part in a simulated missile launch. France will be the sole EU nation with nuclear arms after 2019, when the UK is expected to leave the 28-member bloc.

 

According to BBC, Macron stressed the importance of France's nuclear deterrent, describing it as the "keystone of security”. The reported missile launch simulation was part of the president's day-long visit to nuclear weapons facilities at the Ile Longue base, near Brest. It is home to the country's four nuclear-powered, ballistic missile-carrying submarines. France maintains a fleet of nuclear-armed submarines and strike planes, and has about 300  operational nuclear warheads. Support for the deterrent is deeply rooted in French society and history, ever since it became a nuclear power in the 1960s, correspondents say.

Five-year-plan to encourage clean energy and fulfil the France’s commitments under the Paris Agreement.

 

On the basis of Chloe Farand ‘s breaking news on 6th July 2017  Independent, [ii]with the headline “France will 'ban all petrol and diesel vehicles by 2040'  Environment minister reveals five-year-plan to encourage clean energy and fulfil country's commitments under Paris Agreement which  ban all petrol and diesel vehicles by 2040, the country's new environment minister has announced. Nicolas Hulot made the announcement as he unveiled a series of measures as part of French President Emmanuel Macron's plan to make France a carbon neutral country by 2050. He recognized that the target would put pressure on France's car manufacturers but he said they had projects which "can fulfil that promise". As part of the plan, poorer households will receive a premium so they can swap their polluting vehicles for cleaner ones. Speaking at a press conference, he told reporters France would stop using coal to produce electricity by 2022 and up to €4bn of investments are expected to fight against the insecurity of the energy supply. 

The announcements are part of a five-year-plan to encourage clean energy and fulfil the country's commitments under the Paris Agreement. Mr Hulot said the government wanted to maintain the country's "leadership" in climate policy. More follows …

 

 

 

 

Based on the news published[iii] by France24, French President Emmanuel Macron invited his US counterpart Donald Trump on 27 th June 2017 to attend the country's traditional The 14 July Bastille Day military parade commemorates the storming of the Bastille prison in 1789, despite public differences over the Paris Agreement on climate change. The two leaders were swiftly at odds over climate change after Trump said he would pull the US out of the 2015 Paris climate accord and Macron hit back with an English-language appeal to “make our planet great again”, a riff on Trump’s own promise to “make America great again”.  Meanwhile, the two presidents have since spoken by phone about offering a common response to the use of chemical weapons in Syria as well as joint work on counter-terrorism on the same day .

 

"We want people working on climate change, energy, renewables, and new technologies. France is your nation."

 

Retrospectively, Macron’s  [iv] new center-left party REM was campaigning on environmental protection on February In a video posted to his Facebook and Twitter accounts 9 th Feb 2017 (and hash tagged #Science March), Emmanuel Macron renewed his commitment to fighting global warming and extended a warm welcome: "We want people working on climate change, energy, renewables, and new technologies. France is your nation." Macron began wooing disgruntled U.S. scientists at a mass rally in Lyon, France, on Saturday. After a clip made the rounds on social media, he recorded a new message that has him looking straight into the camera and delivering his message in English, a language most French politicians never use in public. "I do know how your new president has decided to jeopardize your budget, your initiatives, as he is extremely skeptical about climate change," Macron said. "I have no doubt regarding climate change and how committed we have to be regarding this issue."

He continued to assure French and European researchers that, should he become president, France will "reinforce its investments" and make good on the Paris climate agreement. "And second, a message for you guys," he continued. "Please come to France. You are welcome. … We like innovation. We want innovative people." "I can see how it would be appealing for scientists to spend more time doing research and less time dealing with harassment," Halpern says. "But it’s less likely that other countries are going to make sure that U.S. states and cities have the right data to respond to drought and sea level rise, so I’d prefer that the U.S. continue to be a welcoming place for all scientists."

 

And some U.S. scientists might not find the French research climate so enticing. France's overall spending on R&D is currently at 2.23% of gross domestic product, whereas the United States is at 2.79%, according to the Organization [v]for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). French researchers have often taken to the streets during the past decade to protest budget reductions, and there are complaints about an abundance of bureaucracy in French research organizations. Macron has made the environment a leading issue in his campaign, but has said relatively little about science policy until that time

 

Macron’s Clean Energy and Green Cabinet

Two female scientists and a militant environmentalist join Emmanuel Macron’s new government based on Science mag news on 18th May 2017; Science will have a bigger voice in the next French government. Newly elected President Emmanuel Macron announced yesterday that a molecular geneticist–turned–university administrator will head the new ministry of higher education, research, and innovation, while a highly respected physician-scientist is France’s new health minister. Both are women—as is fully half of the new cabinet. But perhaps the principal surprise was the appointment of the immensely popular green activist Nicolas Hulot at the new Ministry of “Ecological and Solidarity-based Transition.” Hulot—who has called Donald Trump’s retreat from the Clean Power Plan “a crime against humanity” and who wants to phase out nuclear energy—is credited with major changes in French environmental policy in the past decade—but always from outside the government. Frederique Vidal, 53, the new research minister for science, spent most of her career at the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis, where she increasingly focused on education and climbed through the administrative ranks until becoming university president in 2012. The fact that Vidal “knows the sector … is a good thing,” says Patrick Monfort, secretary general of SNCS-FSU, a trade union for researchers based near Paris.

 

Shift towards more renewables in the French energy mix

On 21st May, France’s new President Emmanuel Macron appointed his cabinet – to great acclaim. The direction of the country’s energy transition remains unclear; however Craig Morris investigates and secretly hopes for a Sixth Republic based on Energy transition by C. Morris on 22nd May 2017, Macron, the outsider, has put together a group of ministers that reflect his wish to be inclusive. There is something for everyone: new faces and old, left and right, politically established and newcomers. One main concern after his election was whether he would be able to bring together support from the political apparatus as an outsider. His cabinet is an obvious attempt to form an umbrella government across party lines. Judging from the initial media reactions, his choices have at least met with admiration. The appointment that has drawn the most attention seems to be the new Minister of Ecology and Solidarity – the new name for the old Ministry of Energy and the Environment headed by Segolene Royal. The new focus indicates that social issues will be a priority when decisions about the energy transition are made.

The symbolic event between German Chancellor Angela Merkel [vii]and French President Emmanuel Macron marked the shifting tectonic  plates of power within the bloc with the two countries re-emerging as the driving force of the Union.Mr Macron said: "When France and Germany speak with one voice, Europe can move forward. Sometimes it is not enough, but it is a necessary condition. It is more than a symbol, it is a work ethic.” We know the fact that despite not declared directly in the conference The rhetoric of Merkel and Macron pertaining the Climate Agreement was same again.

France's Macron to back push for Global Environment Rights Pact

French President Emmanuel Macron promised on 24th June 2017 to play an active role in a campaign aimed at securing a global pact to protect the human right to a clean and healthy environment. on the basis of the  Reuters news headlined as “France's Macron to back push for global environment rights pact”  and  published[viii] on the same day. He made the pledge at a meeting at Sorbonne University where politicians, legal experts and activists presented him with draft proposals for such a pact. Macron has been pushing to maintain momentum generated by a global agreement to combat climate change reached in Paris Accord in 2015 (Under the Paris accord, countries committed to reducing emissions of greenhouse gases generated by burning fossil fuels that are blamed by scientists for warming the planet), after President Donald Trump pulled the United States out, drawing condemnation from other leaders. He said he will submit a document to the UN in September and has welcomed the initial proposals from scientists, experts, lawyers and activists. Such submission means the pact should eventually be put to the United Nations for adoption and imposes legally-binding obligations on signatory states, its drafters - comprising legal experts from several countries.  French President Emmanuel Macron, meeting with two[ix] of the architects of the COP 21 Paris climate deal, Ban ki-Moon and Laurent Fabius, has promised a new “World Pact for the Environment”. He says he will submit a document  to the UN in September, and has welcomed the initial proposals from scientists, experts, lawyers and activists. “No one can claim today to be able to fight effectively against terrorism for peace in the world, without launching a war on global warming.  I have tried to convince some of my colleagues that this was the way to follow. I have failed on some, as you have noticed he added. Attendees at the Sorbonne included former California governor turned green activist Arnold Schwarzenegger as and former United Nations chief Ban Ki-moon. It was chaired by former Prime Minister Laurent Fabius, who chaired the 2015 conference on climate change. Arnold Schwarzenegger and French President Emmanuel Macron teamed up in Paris to talk about the Paris climate agreement and global warming. They also pulled off a selfie video not-so-surreptitiously aimed at you-know-who: that other president. The video, posted to Schwarzenegger’s Twitter on Friday, is labeled: “With President Macron, a great leader.” The former California governor notes on the vid: “I’m here with President Macron. We’re talking about environmental issues and a green future.” Macron pipes in: “And now we will deliver together to make the planet great again. Macron coined his “great planet” line — a pointed twist on Donald Trump’s “make America great again” catchphrase — after Trump announced early this month that he was backing out of the Paris climate accords. Macon presented an address in English on French TV criticizing Trump’s decision, and his government issued a “corrected” climate-change video produced by the Trump administration.

France's President Emmanuel Macron, and German [x]Chancellor Angela Merkel, attend a press conference after a pre-G20 meeting in Berlin, Germany, Thursday, June 29, 2017 .German chancellor Angela Merkel predicts climate change face-off at upcoming G-20 summit

n forceful remarks before Germany’s Parliament on Thursday, long-serving Chancellor Angela Merkel predicted a difficult meeting of the world’s major economies next week in Hamburg over the climate agreement spurned by the Trump administration. Despite the withdrawal of the United States, the world’s second-largest polluter, from the Paris climate agreement, the EU remains committed to it and it was not up for renegotiation, she said. “Since the U.S. announced that it would exit the Paris agreement, we cannot expect any easy talks in Hamburg,” Merkel said, referring to the Group of 20 summits for the leaders of the major world economies. “The disagreement is obvious, and it would be dishonest to cover it up.”

 

 And finally

G-20   Hamburg  July 2017

 

German Chancellor Angela Merkel pressed fellow Group of 20 leaders to compromise at the start of talks on climate and trade that have pitted U.S. President Donald Trump against virtually every other country in the club of leading economies. The host of the G20 summit addressed her counterparts on 7 th July Friday (today afternoon) in a hall at the Hamburg convention center, after video footage showed Trump shaking hands with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the first face-to-face encounter between the two men.Merkel was shown talking casually with Putin as the leaders entered the hall, then joining French President Emmanuel Macron in a three-way discussion with Trump, who was seated between Chinese leader Xi Jinping and Britain's Theresa May."We all know the big global challenges and we know that time is pressing," Merkel told the group. Based on news on Reuters today by By Denis Dyomkin and Thomas Escritt. 

"And so solutions can only be found if we are ready for compromise and move toward each other, but without - and I stress this - bending too much, because of course we can also state clearly when there are differences. “Trump later held bilateral talks with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto and Putin. The meeting with the Russian leader is drawing intense scrutiny because of Trump's election campaign pledge to seek a rapprochement with Moscow. So far he has been unable to deliver on that promise amid accusations from U.S. intelligence services that Russia meddled in last year's presidential election and investigations into the Trump campaign's links to the country.Merkel, who is gearing up for a parliamentary election in September, faces the daunting task of steering the G20 toward a consensus on trade, climate change and migration - all issues that have become more contentious since Trump entered the White House half a year ago promising an "America First" approach. Last month he pulled the United States out of a landmark international agreement aimed at combating climate change. And he is threatening to take punitive trade measures in the steel sector which would hit China, Germany, Canada and a host of other countries. The Chinese state news agency Xinhua reported that President Xi had called on G20 nations to strengthen macroeconomic policy coordination and forestall risks in financial markets.

Macron tweeted after the session, “Optimistes et déterminés à travailler ensemble sur nos défis communs; environnement, commerce, numerique et terrorisme. #G20- Optimistic and determined to work together on our common challenges. environment, digital trade and terrorism. #G20 . This part again related with the question ““How Macron coordinates his statements and efforts with European Leaders in terms of Paris Accord” mentioned in Preface of this essay.  The topics concerning the Paris  Climate Change  discussed on  G-20 today and on 8th July will  be covered on a different essay.

 

 

In conclusion, so far Macron performed consistent with his “Make our Planet Great Again “rhetoric and the policies pursued seems reliable in this connotation. Additionally, the five-year-plan to encourage clean energy and fulfil country's commitments under Paris Agreement which  ban all petrol and diesel vehicles by 2040, seems compliant with his commitments.

 

Regarding the query of the following question “How he coordinates his statements and efforts with European Leaders in terms of Paris Accord” He obviously performed greater score in words  and attitudes in terms of consistency and trustworthiness. His videos, briefs, photos speak louder as a proof.

Trump Statements

 

Windmills are destroying shorelines all over the world

In March 2012, Trump said,

"Right now, green energy is way behind the times. You look at the windmills that are destroying shorelines all over the world. Economically, they're not good. It's a very, very poor form of energy."

 

In March 2012, Trump said, "

Solar hasn't caught on because it's a 32-year payback. Who wants a 32-year payback? The fact is, the technology is not there yet. Wind farms are hurting the country.

 

Donald J Trump said again before the Presidential Election ;  reen energy is just an expensive feel-good for tree-huggers

 

There has been a big push to develop alternative forms of energy--so-called green energy--from renewable sources. That's a big mistake. To begin with, the whole push for renewable energy is being driven by the wrong motivation, the mistaken belief that global climate change is being caused by carbon emissions. If you don't buy that--and I don't--then what we have is really just an expensive way of making the tree-huggers feel good about themselves. The most popular source of green energy is solar as several decades after installing solar  panels to get your money back. That's not exactly what I would call a good investment. Even if that number is only half right, what kind of investment do you want to make that takes 20 years before you break even
