Tony Abbott has backtracked on his call for Australia to pull out of the Paris climate agreement. Abbott was all for pulling out of the agreement last July, and it is now clear that his crusade was all about trying to hurt then Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and replacing him with a new leader, rather than energy policy. Abbott is clearly worried that Zali Steggall, who is running against him as an independent candidate and who has been campaigning strongly on climate action, has a good chance of beating him.
