Prime Minister Scott Morrison has confirmed his participation in the Glasgow Climate Summit.

Morrision faced worldwide backlash last month when he suggests he may not be taking part in the talks and he has faced pressure from allies, including the US and Britain, to commit to more ambitious climate action.

Queen Elizabeth was even caught on camera reprimanding the world’s leaders for not committing to what British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, speaking of urgent need to combat global warming, called a “turning point for humanity”

In a rare foray into politics, Britain’s Prince Charles spoke in surprise of Morrison’s reluctance and said that it would be a “disaster” if heads of state and government do not take decisive measures to stem climate change.

Widely regarded as a trailblazer in climate action, Australia is one of the world’s largest coal and gas exporters and has long opposed the introduction of a carbon-neutral target.

While Morrison committed to a target date of 2050 for that goal, he is refusing to commit the target, and has still not committed to any significantly more meaningful emission reduction targets for 2030.

Speaking to reporters in Sydney on Friday afternoon Mr Morrison said he was looking forward to taking part in “important event”
