Uh oh. Just what Kevin Rudd would have said:
Malcolm Turnbull has urged Commonwealth countries to make a powerful statement on combating climate change on the eve of the crucial Paris summit, and has met his Canadian counterpart Justin Trudeau, who wants “strong leadership’’ on climate.
In a special session at the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting in Malta, the Prime Minister urged leaders to sign up to a CHOGM climate change statement to boost momentum ahead of the so-called 21st Conference of the Parties (COP) in Paris.
“Ahead of COP 21 it is a powerful signal to other countries of the world to show a similar level of ambition and commitment to working together for a strong result in Paris,” Mr Turnbull told the session…
Mr Turnbull also announced that Australia would provide $1 million to the Commonwealth Climate Finance Access Hub, which will be based in Mauritius."
