Macron's call attracts six more US-based scientists

Six more United States-based scientists have been selected to take part in French President Emmanuel Macron's call to "Make our Planet Great Again", which was announced in response to President Donald Trump pulling the US out of the Paris climate agreement, writes Sophie Tatum for CNN.

Last week’s announcement, says French Minister of Higher Education, Research and Innovation Frédérique Vidal, emphasised that there is an urgency to counter climate change. It adds that the joint initiative by France and Germany offers the international scientific community an opportunity to increase its efforts in battling climate change.

The US-based scientists are part of a larger group of 14, and come from a variety of universities like Yale, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Florida State University, among others. In December, another group of scientists won similar grants and an invitation from the French government.
