French environment minister ragequits government
The French environment minister, Hulot, just QQ'd the government. «He said he felt "all alone" while trying to advance green policies in the government.»

A summary of what he said:
  • The French government's lack of progress on steps to tackle climate change, defend biodiversity and address environmental threats resulted in an "accumulation of disappointments."
  • "I don't want to lie any longer. I don't want to maintain the illusion that my presence in government means that we are meeting these environmental challenges."
  • "France is doing more than a lot of other countries. Do not make me say that it is doing enough. It is not doing enough. Europe is not doing enough. The world is not doing enough.

I assume everyone on this forum figured this out a long time before Hulot.
Perhaps Hulot will appear in this forum. It was after after studying environmental science that I saw the facade crumble to nothing.
Far far, very far from enough, probably still going in the opposite direction.
But still my hat off.
Nicolas Hulot is a controversial personality.
It is true that he was trying to act for the climate, but on the other hand, this guy is a supporter of French industrial capitalism ... An annotated: Although saying himself "ecologist", he was not against nuclear power plants. That tells you a lot about the character.
He wanted an ecological transistion, a gigantic "green washing" of the French industry ... Now we know that the technoindustrial civilization can not be reformed.
He has resigned, but that does not change the problem.
