Macron's party set for huge majority in parliament

10 June 2017

"On the 1st of June, President Donald Trump made a decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris agreement, which gathered more than 190 countries united against climate change".

Having already this week promised to strengthen France's climate targets in response to the US's plan to quit the Paris Agreement, the newly-elected leader yesterday announced a new website - www.makeourplanetgreatagain.fr - in a thinly-veiled riposte to US President and climate sceptic Donald Trump's 2016 election campaign slogan. One of Macron's close aides said the president sees his role as being a "gadfly" in worldwide affairs-an irritant who challenges the perceived complacency of others-especially with a USA leader who has questioned his nation's attachments to global treaties and historical alliances. Part of its electorate has left for Macron, others for La France Insoumise. The U.S. president believed that the non-binding accord would hurt the American economy. "Now there are very intensive consultations with our German and French friends".

A tax on carbon would generate government receipts, which could be used to mitigate the "social impacts" of the energy transition on the coal industry, EDF Chief Executive Officer Jean-Bernard Levy said Thursday at a conference in Paris organized by the Toulouse School of Economics.

"The time is the right one today for an initiative that maybe could be generated in France, with quick support of Germany, obviously after the September elections", Levy said.
