Scott Morrison's "The Australian Way" climate change policy called out as unworkable, reckless and dangerous at UN COP26 Climate Change Conference 2021

"The pandemic has taught us that national solutions to global problems do not work. We come to Glasgow with global ambition to save our people and to save our planet. But we now find three gaps. On mitigation climate pledges are NDCs [nationally determined contributions]. Without more we will leave the world on a pathway to 2.7 degrees and with more we are still likely to get to 2 degrees. These commitments made by some are based on technologies yet to be developed and this is at best reckless and at worst dangerous...."  [Prime Minister of Barbados Mia Mottley Q.C., Day Two, UN Climate Conference 2021, Glasgow Scotland U.K.]
