Keith Duncan, Pimlico
What a thoroughly deserved backhander the UN Climate Summit gave to the marketing guy (PM Morrison), by not allowing him to waste their precious time by peddling his usual marketing spin to world leaders who are actually serious about tackling the climate emergency.
It seems that the co-hosts of the conference, including the UN, UK and France only allowed speaking slots for countries that are putting in place ambitious targets for net zero emissions by 2050, and are on track to meet those targets under the Paris agreement; neither of which Australia is on track to do, despite spin-doctor Morrison’s ‘creative’ assertions.
Because of the Coalition’s reckless inaction, over the last decade, where they have been actively working against action on climate change, Australia is now starting to pay a huge price. Sadly the rest of the world now regards Australia as a climate pariah and is starting to punish us accordingly.
It seems the marketing guy has been able to con the majority of voters in Australia with his free-flowing Trumpian hyperbole, but it’s a different proposition with other world leaders, even crazy Boris won’t have a bar of Morrison’s bullshit, and that’s as bad as it gets.
