Scott Morrison confirms he’s unlikely to attend UN climate summit in Glasgow

Scott Morrison confirms he’s unlikely to attend UN climate summit in Glasgow,  SBS, 2 Oct 21, Scott Morrison says attending COP26 would require him to go into quarantine for a fourth time, disrupting his ability to “engage in my normal duties” as prime minister.

Scott Morrison has given the strongest indication yet he will not attend United Nations climate talks in Glasgow, blaming coronavirus quarantine requirements……

“I will have spent, if I do that, a total of four times 14-day quarantine, basically, in this building, not being able to engage in my normal duties around the country as much as I would like to.”

“That’s a long time for a prime minister to be in quarantine in a six-month period.”

More than 100 world leaders have so far indicated they will attend the summit in person………

Meanwhile, Nationals resisting coalition attempts to get a 2050 net zero emissions target over the line before Glasgow say they are yet to see the government’s plan for how to achieve it………
