French environment minister quits live on air: 'I don’t want to lie to myself any more'



Emmanuel Macron's climate commitment to 'make this planet great again' is on shaky ground after his environment minister dramatically quit during a live radio broadcast. Nicolas Hulot, an environmentalist and former TV personality, announced his resignation during a breakfast show on radio France Inter, saying the French president wasn't doing enough on climate and other environmental goals. 'For the first time I'm going to take the hardest decision of my life,' said Hulot: 'I don't want to lie to myself any more.' The French president was not informed of his resignation beforehand
