Māori Climate Commissioner condemns Australia's climate
denial and calls on Patrick Suckling to resign
Climate Commissioner, Donna Awatere Huata, has condemned
Australia's decision to doom its Pacific neighbours to
climate catastrophe by appearing at a Coal Conference at the
UN Climate Change Summit.
"By appearing at America's
coal carnival, Australia has slapped the Pacific in the
face. Climate change means there can be no future in coal
and Australia's Environmental Ambassador, Patrick Suckling,
should resign. Pretending that coal is a solution is pure
fantasy and sentences our Pacific neighbours islands to be
swallowed up by rising seas."
