French Minister Pushes for ‘Green Police’ to Cope with Climate Change

Minister calls for 3,000 new climate police positions.

QUICK FACTS:
  • In order to combat climate change, a senior minister in France has called for the hiring of 3,000 “green police.”
  • France’s Minister of the Interior, Gérald Darmanin, announced that he wants to create thousands more positions for “green police” officials in an effort to fend off alleged “climate change.”
  • The European Union is working toward a significant reduction in carbon emissions and member states have been imposing strict climate restrictions on their citizens in the process.
DARMANIN’S COMMENTS ON THE PROPOSED CHANGES:
  • “Faced with this, we must improve the work of judicial investigation,” the journal reports Darmanin as saying.
  • “We have therefore decided to massively reinforce the resources of the Central Office for the Fight against Damage to the Environment and to launch 3,000 ‘green police’ posts,” he continued. “The objective is that, in each gendarmerie brigade, there are gendarmes trained in attacks on ecology.”
BACKGROUND:
  • In their efforts to combat the purported effects of climate change, officials in Europe are looking at boosting their own resources.
  • Another Eurocrat asked last week that Brussels be given more power to create their own “Civil Protection Force” in an effort to “protect” member-states from the alleged abusers of the climate.
