Australian climate activists urge government not to follow Canada's lead

In the face of mounting pressure from the public, the Australian government is expected to announce new carbon reduction targets in advance of December’s World Climate Summit 2015 in Paris. On June 23, 2015, as part of its “Climate for Change” series of articles, Australia’s Fairfax Media reported that the government was looking at American and Canadian carbon targets as possible templates.
[…] International organizations that have slammed Canada for its weak target include the Natural Resources Defense Council, the World Resources Institute, Climate Action Tracker, and the 2015 Africa Progress Panel, led by former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan.
