Macron's Big Bienvenue to US Climate Scientists

After President Trump rejected the Paris accord on global warming, French president Emmanuel Macron launched the “Make Our Planet Great Again” initiative to attract top climate scientists from the US and other countries.

Applications have poured in for the program, which offers 4-year grants worth up to €1.5 million, including 154 from researchers seeking long-term stays. Around 50 winners will be announced in November.

With US climate science under the pressure of looming budget cuts, said one climate researcher, the French program is a “very attractive proposition for many scientists in the US.”

On July 13, Germany announced that it is planning a similar program.
