‘Crazy’: Call to increase climate-based financing for developing countries

Pauline Hanson’s chief of staff, James Ashby, says calling for Australia to increase its climate financing for developing countries to $4 billion a year is “crazy”.

“We already give more than $4 billion in foreign aid,” he told Sky News presenter Paul Murray.

“There are 13 million Australians who go into work on a daily or weekly basis, and their taxes contribute to that… it’s about $300 a year that goes into foreign aid.

“What they’re asking is that all those Australians pay another $300 to an organization that has no control over how that money is spent.”
