Aussie PM talks his way around the IPCC climate change report

Aussie PM talks his way around the IPCC climate change report

Scott Morrison (pictured) has effectively dismissed the latest report from the  Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

The Australian PM has donned his PR hat to talk his way beyond the report and claim Australia is among the world's best at combating climate change and will "meet and beat" is Paris commitments.

Australia is not what Mr Morrison claims and nor will it meet and beat its Paris targets.

Stories about the latest Sixth Assessment Report, and Australia's laggard-like performance have flooded the media.

They continue to roll in, but Climate Conversations has picked on just a few:

From The Guardian - "IPCC report shows ‘possible loss of entire countries within the century’";

From SBSNews - "Global warming of 1.5 degrees could be reached a decade earlier around 2030, major climate report finds";

From ABC News - "IPCC report shows Earth's temperature is rising, and the heat is on Scott Morrison and Coalition's climate policy";

From the Independent - "IPCC report 2021: ‘Cost of inaction keeps mounting’ says Biden amid ‘irreversible’ sea level rise warning";

From the World Resources Institute - "5 Big Findings from the IPCC’s 2021 Climate Report";

From Inside Climate News - "Global Climate Panel’s Report: No Part of the Planet Will be Spared";

From Reuters - "U.N. climate change report sounds 'code red for humanity'";

From The Saturday Paper - " IPCC warns of climate breakdown";

And finally, from Real Climate - "We are not reaching 1.5ºC earlier than previously thought".

Those who want to read the report for themselves can do so by visiting the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change website.
