Australia – not too sure COP26 is good idea
Australia’s prime minister has signalled he may not attend the UN’s landmark climate conference in November as his government faces continued criticism of its poor climate record.
In an interview, Scott Morrison said he had “not made any final decisions” on attending, suggesting it was a burden.
“It’s another trip overseas… and I’ve spent a lot of time in quarantine,” he told the West Australian newspaper.
The COP26 summit will be the biggest global climate crisis talks in years.
