Actor and former governor of California-turned environmental activist Arnold Schwarzenegger cycled through Paris on Monday as part of an effort to protest President Donald Trump’s decision to pull the United States out of the Paris Climate Agreement.
Wearing a suit and green tie, Schwarzenegger was filmed cycling through the streets of Paris before meeting the city’s mayor Anne Hidalgo and speaking at a climate change event.
Schwarzenegger was attending the events partly in response to Trump’s decision to pull the United States out of the Paris Climate Agreement signed under Barack Obama, claiming that it was unfair to the United States.
“It doesn’t matter that Donald Trump backed out of the Paris agreement, because the private sector didn’t drop out, the public sector didn’t drop out, the universities didn’t drop out, the scientists didn’t drop out, the engineers didn’t drop out. … No one else dropped out,” Schwarzenegger was quoted as saying.
