Climate groups: G7 leaders 'backsliding' on climate
ELMAU, Germany, 29 June. - (ANA) - Climate groups criticised G7 leaders for "backsliding" on climate goals, after they watered-down pledges to halt fossil fuel investment at their Bavarian summit.
The G7 communique said investment in liquefied natural gas was a "necessary response to the current crisis".
But Laurie van der Burg, campaigner at Oil Change International, a US-based campaign group, said "we cannot afford this kind of backsliding. There are lives on the line." - (ANA) -
