Paris Agreement: Australians want our country to “work harder”, not follow President Trump

The vast majority of Australians do not want our country to follow President Trump’s lead if he pulls out of the Paris Agreement on climate change, nation-wide attitudinal research by The Climate Institute shows.

institute, Olivia Kember.
In fact, six out of 10 Australians want Australia to “work harder with other countries” to achieve the goals of the Agreement, if the US withdraws. Another 26 per cent want us to maintain our current commitments within the Agreement.

“87 per cent of Australians do not want our country to step back from its commitments in any way – and almost two thirds want us to step up our efforts to help make up for the United States,” said Acting CEO of The Climate institute, Olivia Kember.
