Pacific leaders call for justice over warming

18 September 2018 | Cecily McNeill

Perhaps the timing of the Pacific Islands Forum was difficult for Australia’s new leadership and prime minister Scott Morrison sent new foreign minister Marise Payne to represent him. But this robbed the Pacific leaders of an opportunity to call out Morrison on what they see as the Australian government’s lack of commitment to emissions reductions as their nations start to disappear under rising oceans. 
Pacific Island leaders want justice from Australia (and New Zealand) in a concrete commitment to cut carbon emissions.
