Hulot slams the door: Popular environment minister quits Macron cabinet

Emmanuel Macron's most popular cabinet minister, Nicolas Hulot, quits live on the radio. Macron defends his absolute and constant commitment to the environment as Hulot criticises the disinterest of the French government for tackling key environmental issues. Does it show up a French president who on the world stage fancies himself as a champion of the Paris climate deal? More broadly, does the row mean economic growth is anathema to saving the planet?

Produced by Michele BARBERO, Tommaso MAZZANTI and Van MEGUERDITCHIAN.

By François PICARD
