No takers yet on French President Macron’s plea for climate scientists to move to France

French President Emmanuel Macron urged U.S. climate scientists during his campaign to move to France, but so far it doesn’t appear that anyone has taken him up on his offer.

Mr. Macron posted a video in February taking a swipe at President Trump on global warming and welcoming to France “American researchers, entrepreneurs, engineers working on climate change.”

“The message for you guys: Please come to France. You are welcome. It’s your nation. We like innovation. We want innovative people. We want people working on climate change, energy, renewables and new technologies,” said Mr. Macron in English. “France is your nation.”

Even though Mr. Macron handily defeated Marine Le Pen in the May 7 presidential runoff, so far no U.S. climate researchers have declared their intention to flee to Paris.

“I have not heard of a single one taking up the offer as of yet,” said Climate Depot’s Marc Morano. “Perhaps the climate scientists here in the U.S. are still enjoying their academic perks, steady funding and endless media adoration. There does not seem to be too much of a reason they would want to leave.”

In the widely viewed video, Mr. Macron warned that Mr. Trump “has decided to jeopardize your budget, your initiatives, as he is extremely skeptical about climate change. I have no doubt about climate change and how committed we have to be regarding this issue.”

Eric Worrall of Watts Up With That, a prominent climate skeptics’ website, encouraged the newly elected French president to make good on his promise.

“President Macron, please take them. Take them all,” Mr. Worrall said in a post. “But be warned, they will expect you to feed them; don’t expect us to pay for their upkeep.”

    Still waiting for the Trump refugees to bless Canada with their awesomeness. Even Neil “heavy peace” Young won’t come home to stay.
    Activists get comfortable in their echo chambers.
    If they moved to Europe, they might end up holding the pail in left-handed circle jerk.

    It is too bad these alleged scientists don’t take up Macron’s offer. It would significantly improve the average quality of the researchers left behind.

    As I have said many times on this web site the very basic process of science calls for comparing data to theory, and if they don’t match, scrap or modified the theory. In climate change this has been reversed and they modify the data to fit the politically motivated theory. This isn’t science at all but rather junk science.

    Those who support this process are junk scientists and we would be far better off if they relocated to France.
