"Pacific Leaders To Confront Abbott on Emissions Targets"

"Tony Abbott faces a cool reception when he flies to Port Moresby this week from Pacific Island leaders who say global inaction on climate change threatens their existence.

The Prime Minister stands accused of largely ignoring the calls for more ambitious emissions reduction targets and stronger support for islands facing extreme weather events and rising sea levels.

The leaders agreed to a common position on Friday, declaring they are gravely distressed at the threat climate change poses to their countries and are profoundly concerned that not enough is being done."
