The article analyzes French public perception of climate change, environmental policy development, and environmental performance in the wake of a deadly heat-wave in France in August of 2003. It is suggested that the French are among the most concerned about the problem of climate change in the European Union and are committed to emissions mitigation. The challenges facing public policy designed to achieve a fourfold reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 are assessed. The impact the global economic crisis will have on building legal and national consensus in regard to climate change in France is discussed.
