Climate change to be in G20 communique after ‘trench warfare’

Tom Allard in the Brisbane Times (16.11.14) reports that climate change was included in the G20 communique after ‘trench warfare’. ‘The final G20 communique will reportedly include a significant passage on climate change after “difficult discussions” among leaders, and will include a pledge for nations to commit funds to the UN’s Green Climate Fund that Prime Minister Tony Abbott opposes. “The most difficult discussion was on climate change,” an EU official told reporters on condition of anonymity, Reuters reported. “This was really trench warfare, this was really step by step by step. In the end we have references to most of the things we wanted.” The communique included references to taking practical measures to combat global warming and an explicit endorsement of the climate fund.’
