Empty talks and no substantive action against climate change! That appears to be the policy of even moderate leaders in the wealthiest nations; the downfall of Australia’s ex-PM Malcolm Turnbull, who was ousted from the office over a climate policy, is a case in point.

What’s more worrying for climate crusaders is a global pattern of “rightward shift” that can be observed at its brazen best in the U.S. and to a subtle degree in Canada, where PM Trudeau’s government plans to reduce tax on carbon emissions, writes The Atlantic.

A new research at the Chalmers University of Technology suggests that there are strong links between right-wing nationalism and climate change denial, and the relationship exists on a global scale with Norway, Sweden, Denmark, and many other nations submissively skewing to the wrong side, reports ZME Science.
