France Adopts English As Its Official Language

Really.  No kidding.  This is not an April Fool's joke.

On June 1, 2017, French President Emmanuel Macron harshly criticized President Trump's decision to withdraw the United states from the Paris Agreement on climate change. He said it was a mistake both for the U.S. and the planet.  It was an unprecedented English-language speech at the Elysee Palance.

In his speech largely addressed to Americans, he said:

"To all the scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, and responsible citizens who were disappointed by the decision by the president of the United States, I want to say they will find in France a second homeland,...I call on them--come and work here with us, to work together on concrete solutions for our climate."

He neglected such little details as oppressive taxes, labor regulations, and a myriad of other economic problems afflicting France.  But never mind.

Imagine.  Being able to eat French food, drink French wine, and see great Art in an English-speaking France.
