Pacific Islands Leaders To Confront Australia's Tony Abbott Over Emissions Targets

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott is set to be confronted by leaders of several Pacific Island nations who seek to take the leader to task for his stance on emissions reduction, according to Monday reports.

Abbott has been accused of ignoring calls to push stronger emissions reduction targets from Pacific Island leaders, including the Prime Minister of Tuvalu, Enele Sosene Sopoaga, the President of Kiribati, Anote Tong, and Fiji’s Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama, who warned that climate change caused by global rising temperatures could threaten their existence.
