Australia to join international climate coalition to protect human health, agriculture and ecosystems

Australia today announced it will join the Climate and Clean Air Coalition - an alliance of over two dozen nations, intergovernmental organisations, the private sector, and civil society, committed to rapid action to reduce short-lived but highly potent pollution caused by methane, black carbon (soot), tropospheric ozone (smog) and hydrofluorocarbons.

"Australia is signing on with other nations, including the United States, who are supporting action to reduce these pollutants," said Greg Combet, Minister for Climate Change and Energy Efficiency.
