In need of a job and having a fondness for cheese, wine and pétanque, and knowing the difference between gauche et droite, and seeing the sad, pleading, almost tearful look of Président Macron as he begged for American scientists to save France, I knew what my duty was.
I applied to Make Our Planet Great Again.
The call is an extraordinary one. Président Macron was unhappy that President Trump withdrew from the Paris thingeemabob. So he put out the call for American scientists to emigrate.
And he put it out in English!
This may be the most astonishing event in modern diplomatic history. Not the plan to spend government money on an impossible task. That happens daily. No. A sitting French president asked Americans in English to come and show France a better way!
I was so overcome by emotion, that I ran to the site and answered the series of preparatory questions, which you can see below.
After those wisdomy words, I was invited to input my personal details, and then up popped these words:
“I’m a researcher / teacher from United States of America coming to France to fight climate change.”
I was told I would hear back within a few weeks. Undoubtedly, Macron himself will swoon when he sees my words. Thus I am announcing now that I will be moving to France.
Join the la résistance! Fight the nasty climate invaders! Let’s stop forever the climate from changing!
