France Needs To Recover From The Blow of Its Environment Minister’s Resignation


08/28/2018


Disappointed over policy deficiency, the French Environment Minister announces his resignation.



Announcing the resignation, the Environment Minister of France, Nicolas Hulot cited his disappointment with the “lack of progress on climate and other environmental goals”. Hulot took his decision on Monday night, as the result of accumulated disappointments when it came to the inadequate steps taken to deal with “climate change, defend biodiversity and address other environmental threats”.
 
Hulot has been an ex-television presenter as well as green activist while his cabinet portfolio also added energy to his experience. On France Inter radio Hulot stated that he is yet to inform the French President Emmanuel Macron on his decision of resignation. Hulot’s consistent high scores on popularity could be a “blow to Macron” when it comes to his departure. Soon after the announcement was made by Hulot, the spokesperson of the government, Benjamin Griveaux expressed regret on the exit news.
 
Griveaux said:
“I don’t understand why he is stepping down when we had many successes in the first year that are to his credit. He didn’t win all his battles but that’s the way it goes for ministers.”
“It’s a blow from which we’ll recover”.
 
Hulot’s disappointment also included the resolve taken by the government to bring down the country’s dependency on “nuclear power”. However, Hulot’s departure news came after the government of France informed that the hunting laws would be relaxed. However, during his interview in radio, Hulot stressed on the “inadequacy of ‘mini steps’ taken by France and other nations to slow global warming and avert a collapse of biodiversity”. In his words:
“I don’t want to create the illusion that we are facing up to it”.
