Australia to UN: No More 'Socialism Masquerading as Environmentalism'
Australia's cabinet has decided it will reject new contributions or taxes related to climate change at this week's annual United Nations global summit on climate change in Warsaw, calling the measures "socialism masquerading as environmentalism."
According to The Australian, the document that was agreed upon declares that Australia "will not sign up to any new agreement that involves spending money or levying taxes" on climate change matters. It "rules out Australia playing any role in a wealth transfer from rich countries to developing nations to pay them to decrease their carbon emissions."
Australia also plans to repeal its carbon tax as it toughens its stance against the climate change agenda.
