Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s speech at the virtual US-hosted climate summit was in line with the government's strategy of accentuating the positive of Australia’s climate policy, says US Studies Centre CEO Simon Jackman. Jackman said this involved saying the fact Australia didn’t leave the Paris or Kyoto climate agreements but was leaving the door for further announcements for the Glasgow summit later this year. “It was about what I expected from the Australian prime minister as we all know the politics of climate change here in Australia; very, very fraught,” he told Sky News.
