Scott Morrison ‘accentuated the positives’ of climate policy at virtual summit

Prime Minster Scott Morrison’s speech at the virtual US-hosted climate summit was in line with the government’s strategy of “accentuating the positive” of Australia’s climate policy, says US Studies Centre CEO Simon Jackman. Mr Jackman said this involved saying “the fact Australia didn’t leave” the Paris or Kyoto climate agreements but was “leaving the door for further announcements” for the Glasgow summit later this year. “It was about what I expected from the Australian prime minister as we all know the politics of climate change here in Australia; very, very fraught,” he told Sky News. “I think the prime minister, consistent with the strategy that has been the Australian government’s strategy since the election of the Biden administration, is to accentuate the positive.”
