"Whilst the US accepted with good grace that Australia had signed on to the Kyoto Protocol, during his speech to the conference Mr Rudd had a swipe at the US," Mr Hunt, opposition climate change spokesperson told ABC radio today.

"The result was that the talk of the conference was that the US had drawn back from Australia, that we had lost our leverage, the work that we were able to do with them in APEC had been pushed away.

"So we had less influence and less leverage and they (United States) were to a certain extent more isolated as a result."
