Arnold Schwarzenegger And Emmanuel Macron Could Be Just The Pals Our Planet Needs

"Now we will deliver together to make the planet great again."

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Emmanuel Macron might sound like an unlikely duo, but The Terminator (and former California governor) and French president are currently joining forces in support of a worthy cause — the future of our planet.

Schwarzenegger and Macron met in Paris on June 23 to discuss climate change and global warming. In a ten-second video shared on Schwarzenegger's Twitter account, the pair appears together to briefly elaborate on what they talked about.

"I'm here with President Macron, we're talking about environmental issues and a green future," Schwarzenegger says as text in the video praises Macron for being a "great leader."


"And now we will deliver together to make the planet great again," Macron adds. "Thank you."

In a follow-up tweet, Macron confirmed the start of the Make Our Planet Great Again project and said he was "glad" to be working with Schwarzenegger.

Both men clearly took aim at President Trump in their tweets — Schwarzenegger by calling Macron a "great leader" and Macron by playing with Trump's "Make America Great Again" campaign slogan — but we're more interested in their decision to come together in support of our planet.

Though it's unclear exactly how Schwarzenegger and Macron linked up, both have been publicly critical of the current administration's June 1 decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement. Just hours after the decision was made, Schwarzenegger denounced it in a video shared on Twitter, explaining, in part, "One man cannot destroy our progress. One man can't stop our clean energy revolution."

Macron took a similar if not tougher approach, criticizing Trump's decision via an address in English on French TV. The French government also issued a "corrected" climate-change video in response one produced by the Trump administration.

Schwarzenegger and Macron are among the growing list of powerful people who refuse to support the administration's choice to leave the Paris Climate Agreement. Numerous politicians have said they will continue to combat climate change in their respective states, tech giants have virtually ignored the administration's decision, and billionaire and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has pledged up to $15 million to cover the United States' initial commitment to the accords.
