Last year, the United States, United Kingdom, and dozens of other countries strengthened efforts to tackle the climate crisis... Australia was not among them.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison refused to strengthen Australia's 2030 target at the COP26 summit in Glasgow. His government decided to stick with the weak target set by Tony Abbott way back in 2015—a meagre 26 percent reduction this decade.
The Morrison government signed the Glasgow Climate Pact which requires countries who haven't yet strengthened their 2030 targets to do so for the COP27 in Egypt this November.
The government seemingly walked away from the international agreement when it stated that Australia's 2030 target is fixed and ruled out any increase in ambition.
It's time for PM Scott Morrison to be clear with global leaders and the Australian community... It's time for the Federal government to get serious about the climate crisis.
