US puts pressure on Australia with Global Climate Change fund

Surprise revelation on Global Climate Change fund

‘The surprise revelation that the United States would contribute $US3 billion to a global climate change fund appears to have been designed to increase pressure on Australia to take the issue more seriously, says a board member of the fund. Hours before the President was due to address the G20 meetings in Brisbane – where Australia has sought to keep climate change from the agenda – news broke that the US would contribute $US3 billion to the Green Climate Fund, a global initiative to provide money to developing nations to ameliorate the impact of climate change and reduce emissions.’ (Nick O’Malley report in The Age 15.11.14)
