Kofi Annan slates climate inaction from Canada, Australia and Russia

Four leading developed countries have been singled out as “free riders” on climate change by a panel chaired by former UN chief Kofi Annan.
“This is not a moment for prevarication, short-term self-interest, and constrained ambition, but for bold global leadership and decisive action,” he said.
The independent analysis group Climate Action Tracker rates climate pledges made by Canada, Australia, Russia and Japan as “inadequate”.
