French Senate blocks referendum on climate change

The French Senate has voted to block a referendum about making the fight against climate change a part of the French constitution, the Senate said in a statement on Monday.

President Emmanuel Macron had pledged to organize a plebiscite on enshrining the fight against global warming in the constitution in response to criticism that he had not done enough to protect the planet.
