Missing Money for Green Climate Fund earns first Fossil

Fossil of the Day 405x332

The first Fossil of the Day at COP20 goes to Australia, Belgium, Ireland and Austria (alongside the other non-pledgers: Iceland, Greece, Portugal, and the European Union) for being the only Annex 2 countries failing so far to contribute to the GCF. After a string of encouraging initial contributions, it seems this band of Annex 2 free-riders see no need to contribute. This is not acceptable and stands to jeopardise the Paris agreement, under which all countries are expected to take action. To the free-riding ministers: Bring your chequebooks to Lima.
