Climate change emerged as the big issue of the G20 meeting in Brisbane over the weekend.
The Government is following Barack Obamaâ€™s lead with a contribution of $3 million to the global effort.
John Key says the time is right for leaders to tackle the issue.
“I have always thought that climate change is one of these issues where when the economy is poor, that climate change would be pushed to the backburner, and as soon as the economy started rebounding would become a top of mind issue. I think that’s exactly what you’re seeing.”
