Most world leaders reacted with horror to President Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris climate accords.

French President Emmanuel Macron responded with what was largely considered a troll: a short address in which he invites scientists and entrepreneurs to move to France and “make our planet great again.” But it turned out to be more than just a troll; France has put research funding on the table and has apparently been drawing lots of interest from scientists.
Macron’s invitation was more than simply a troll from the start.
It involved Business France, a government agency that’s dedicated to promoting French businesses overseas.

The organization put together a Make Our Planet Great Again website, in which it declared “France has always led fights for human rights.
