Meet Prime Minister Tony Abbott of Australia, the new face of the global conservative movement. He intends to confront President Barry Obama in Washington D.C. over Climate Change, because eco-extemist measures are "clobbering the economy," according to Abbott.
The Sydney Morning Herald reports that, "Tony Abbott is seeking a conservative alliance among "like-minded" countries, aiming to dismantle global moves to introduce carbon pricing, and undermine a push by US President Barack Obama to push the case for action through forums such as the G20."
Tony Abbott is making his first official trip to the U.S.A and he's planning to debate Obama on global environmental issues.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, "Visiting Ottawa for a full day of talks with the conservative Canadian Prime Minister and close friend Stephen Harper, Mr Abbott flagged intentions to build a new centre-right alliance led by Canada, Britain and Australia along with India and New Zealand."
Abbott seeks to champion free market solutions, such as lowering taxes and regulations, while reducing government deficits to boost economic growth.
