Price of agree­ment proves too high for cli­mate talks

The Courier-Mail - - NEWS -

GAFFE-prone Fed­eral En­vi­ron­ment Min­is­ter Melissa Price has failed to reach agree­ment with the states tes on a united po­si­tion to take to a ma­jor cli­mate sum­mit t in Poland this s week­end, as talks s col­lapsed in acri- mony.

Ms Price (pic- tured), de­scribed by one of her own col­leagues s last month as a “min­is­ter on Lplates”, bailed out of her own press con­fer­ence af­ter less than five min­utes. She had been asked why no agree­ment was reached and why none of her state coun­ter­parts joined her at the me­dia event. S She said the other min­is­ters would not agree to her pro­posed “i “im­por­tant and pow­er­ful” state­ment that Aus­trali lia noted the e ef­fect of cli­mate change and would work on an ac­tion p plan. Five La­bor en­vi­ron­ment min­is­ters is­sued a joint state­ment slam­ming her for a lack of ac­tion.
