Today at the United Nations, leaders from
around the world convene in New York for the 2019 Climate Action Summit.
Climate change is one of the largest threats we face today as a global society.
JCDecaux’s DNA is to provide innovative solutions for city and transport
infrastructure at no cost to the taxpayer. All the solutions we develop,
including ongoing daily maintenance, are designed to have minimal impact on the environment. We apply ecodesign principles to create our products and
whenever possible, we use recyclable materials, electric vehicles, captured
rainwater and solar energy. Our most eco-friendly product innovation is the free bike-sharing system which we pioneered over 15 years ago, paving the way for worldwide bike revolution that millions of people benefit from today.
As the number one outdoor advertising company in the world, reaching an audience of
more than 800 million people daily, we employ our advertising platform to
create awareness about climate change in many cities around the world.
We did it with the C40 in San Francisco, for the global Climate Summit in Mexico City, and Paris during the recent Women4Climate conference. And we are doing it
now in New York City with this artistic poster from the Danish designer Per Arnoldi called Warning Global Warming. Tackling climate change is a
responsibility of us all. Solutions are in the hands of each person, every
business. We’re all stakeholders with a role to play. It is our hope that more cities will include sustainability criteria with significant scoring weight
in their tender requirements as Copenhagen did. It is important to lead by example on this issue. There is no compromise. It is
possible to create sustainable and responsible growth. I am proud to
announce today that JCDecaux is the first out-of-home media company
to join the RE100 coalition and to commit to 100 percent
renewable energy by 2022.
about women soccer players. They’re the big stars
in the States, with all the money
and the glory of the men. Well, except for the money part,
as Hasan Minhaj reports. MINHAJ:Superstar athletes
have the life.We’re talking cars, jets.Even their pet albino tigers
get cars.But not all pro athletes
are happy with the big bucks.In fact, the women’s soccer
team is taking legal actionbecause they want more!Players on the U.S. women’s
national soccer team saythey’re being discriminated
against because they make lessthan members of the men’s team.REPORTER:
Filed a federal complaintagainst
the U.S. Soccer Federation.MINHAJ:
I sat down with three membersof the U.S. women’s soccer teamto find out
why they’re being so greedy.We’re not being greedy. We’re
just fighting for what’s right. Our contributions
to the federation should be seen as equal
to what the men have done. Fine. Whatever.
But you need to understand that the men made it to the
round of 16 in the World Cup. Well, we’ve won
three World Cups. Well, they are ranked 30th
in the world. We’re ranked number one. Um, they play with so much… passion. We have
four Olympic gold medals.Humblebrags. Okay.But how much less
could their pay possibly be?If we win a match,
we get $1,300. -The men,
they get around $17,000. -Whoa. If the men’s team loses,
they make $5,000. Five Gs if you lose! Could you imagine
having that much money? Can’t really imagine it because we don’t get paid
anything if we lose. Maybe that’s why you guys
don’t lose. Silver lining. (bleep) kidding me? Why don’t you guys
just pick up second jobs? Uber driving.
After your guys’ games, surge pricing
will definitely be high. Boom. You’re driving fans home
at 1.5, maybe 2, 3x. We don’t have time
to go be an Uber driver. We put in our time to win
gold medals for this team.While
the U.S. Soccer Federationhas their own interpretation
of the pay differences,the bottom line is
the women want themto level the playing field.Oh, and they also want themto literally level
the playing field.They’re constantly forced
to play on Astroturf,even at the World Cup,
something that the men’s teamhas never had to do.-They don’t play on turf?
-Not one game.Others would argue
that the women’s soccer teamshould be grateful
just to play.Like Gavin McInnes.Sure, he looks
like an art school dropoutwith a Shins cover band,
but he has his own showand is aFox Newscontributor.Women do earn less in America
because they choose to.Yep, not surprisingly,
he thinks the women’s lawsuitis a waste of time.Men’s soccer has been getting
ten times the eyeballs.You know what, I’m gonna let
the ladies handle this one.-Well, we actually broke
the record -Yeah. for the most watched soccer game
in the history of America between men or women. You’re playing a man’s game,
by a man’s rules. This is the way it is
in our world. You got to earn it. No, we’ve brought in, what, 17 million this past year. The men lost $2 million
in profit for the federation
this last year. U.S. men’s soccer still gets
a lot more enthusiasm. Now, why is that?
Is that because men’s soccer is more
interesting, more exciting?Gavin, you’re down two-nothing.You know what,
let me try to help you.Name
three U.S. men’s soccer players. Current, we have Bobby Daniels.Bobby Daniels.
Okay, let’s check the list.Nope. Not a player.Zigler Norris.Also not a player.And a guy we…
known to everyone as Junebug.Come on, man. If you’re gonna
make up fake names,do better than Junebug.If lunatics like this
are against the women,who’s on their side?-Billie Jean King.
-100%. I mean, she’s done so much
for women’s sports. Who is that? Tennis player. I don’t… I don’t… REPORTER:
Tennis star Billie Jean Kinghas long been campaigning
for women’s rights.MINHAJ:Damn.
Turns out Billie Jean Kingis a badass tennis player
but also she paved the wayfor equal pay in tennis
when she defeated Bobby Riggsin the 1973 Battle
of the Sexes.Let me get this straight,all you did was defeat a man, and now you have equal pay
in tennis. Problem solved. (chuckles)
It wasn’t easy peasy, man. -When I played Bobby Riggs,
-Mm-hmm. that was about social change. Our ratio of prize money
was about eight-to-one, and I think the women’s soccer
is four-to-one. -And I know what you’re gonna
say. “Improvement.” -Progress. -Yeah.
-Improvement’s not enough. We’re supposed to be so happy
if we get one crumb. “Oh, thank you.
I’m so grateful.” -You’re welcome.
-We deserve the cake, the icing, and the cherry on top, too,
just like the boys. So let’s put some cleats on you,
you play the men, and let’s get them ladies paid. You’re missing the point. Okay.Iwill play the women. Do you honestly think
you can keep up with the women’s soccer players?
Seriously? ♪ ♪We will do a battle
of the sexes, BJK-style,because it worked for tennis. -No.
-No. We’d crush you. Bobby Riggs was a champion
in his sport. We didn’t even know who you were
until today. Um, I’ve played two years
of AYSO.I was in the fourth grade.And I have also won trophiesfor effort. This is definitely
a different level than that.Okay, fine, so the battle
of the sexes is a bad idea.What else can we do?KING:People have
to get to know us.So we need
to really get behind women, get behind them with money,
exposure, give ’em more commercials. MINHAJ:
A commercial! Yes.I can see it now.♪ ♪ WOMAN:
You can defy the odds.SOLO:I became one of
the best players in the worldat the age of 17. WOMAN:
You can be great.I scored a game-winning PK
in a World Cup.You can make history.We won three World Cups
and four Olympic gold medals.You can aspire to be less than.-(whispers):Less than.
-Wait. What did you say?You can be just as good
as any other person,as long as that person
doesn’t have a penis.-(whispers):A penis.
-Are you kidding me? And for all that hard work,
you can make four times less than a man. I don’t think so. ♪ ♪Youcantreat us equally.Youcangive us grass
to play on.You can pay us what we deserve.
