The Guardian reports:
Jacinda Ardern has declared that “Australia has to answer to the Pacific” on climate change, saying that New Zealand is doing what it can to limit global emissions to 1.5C and expects other nations to do the same.
Lecturing Australia on what they should do is becoming a hallmark.
It also backfires horribly.
Jacinda repeatedly lectured Australia on how they shouldn’t deport so many New Zealanders back to New Zealand. Australia’s response was to change the law so they could deport even more back.
Her comments here will probably lead to Australia opening a new coal mine, and naming it after her.
