Since when were French Presidents, or any other leaders, in a position to ‘protect the planet’ or alter the weather? The sooner such obvious nonsense ends, the better.

Reuters: The French Senate has voted to block a referendum promised by President Emmanuel Macron on whether to enshrine the fight against climate change in the French constitution, it said in a statement on Monday.
Macron had pledged to organise such a vote in response to criticism that he has not done enough to protect the planet.
The Senate, the legislature’s upper house, is dominated by the opposition conservatives.
In May, it watered down draft legislation requiring the constitution to “guarantee” the fight against climate change, preferring less binding wording.
