No cli­mate con­sen­sus

Shepparton News - - NATIONAL NEWS -

CAN­BERRA: Aus­tralia’s en­vi­ron­ment min­is­ter will go to a key in­ter­na­tional sum­mit without the states sup­port­ing her ap­proach to cli­mate change.

Melissa Price met with her state coun­ter­parts in Can­berra yes­ter­day and asked them to en­dorse a state­ment to take to a cli­mate meet­ing in Ka­tow­ice, Poland, to­day.

‘‘What I had sug­gested was that we had an agreed state­ment that we would all work to­gether to de­ter­mine an ac­tion plan with re­spect to cli­mate, with re­spect to things that we can do in­di­vid­u­ally and col­lec­tively,’’ she said. ‘‘Sadly that was not agreed.’’ Ms Price would not say which state gov­ern­ments did not agree to her re­quest.

Ms Price said the states were not united in op­pos­ing it and not nec­es­sar­ily along party lines.
