USING THE PROPER LANGUAGE FOR ROTATING PRESIDENCY OF THE COUNCIL

President Macron won’t be President of the European Union or President of Europe as of 1st January 2022 because such a title does not exist at European level.

President Macron won’t be either President of the Council of the European Union because the presidency is not an individual, but rather the position is held by a national government in this case that of France. It is therefore incorrect to refer to it as ‘president of the European Union’

WHAT DID COP 26 ACCOMPLISH?

The final Glasgow Climate Pact, was endorsed by nearly 200 countries and functions as a set of principles and goals for action on climate change. While there is no enforcement mechanism, the agreement serves as a lever for international political pressure.

For the first time, UN climate negotiators specifically called to draw down fossil fuels. Many countries and corporations have fiercely resisted ending their reliance on oil, gas, and coal — the dominant sources of greenhouse gases that trap heat in the atmosphere.

DE GAULLE ET L'URSS

Le général de Gaulle, s'il condamne toutes les formes de totalitarisme, n'en demeure pas moins ouvert au monde soviétique, qu'il soit le puissant allié de la Deuxième Guerre mondiale, ou l'ennemi de l'Occident lors de la Guerre froide qu'il ne désespère pas de faire évoluer vers une forme de libéralisation permettant un dialogue européen "de l'Atlantique à l'Oural". Refusant toutes les formes d'hégémonie, et plus particulièrement celles qu'exercent les Américains, il pousse la France à ouvrir un dialogue direct avec les pays de l'Est.
