Milne hopes for carbon price compromise


Greens Senator Christine Milne says she is hopeful the major parties will be open to compromise on the issue of a carbon price. Prime Minister Julia Gillard says she will not rule in or out the concept of a carbon tax, despite rejecting the idea before the election. She says the Government will instead consider various options through a new climate change committee that will be set up. The terms of reference for that committee will be finalised by the end of the month. Senator Milne has welcomed the changed approach, and says she had a useful meeting with the new Climate Change ...

Press conference transcript: Tarkine protection and forest furnaces
Tarkine 4WD tracks and forest furnaces I totally support the actions of the Tasmanian Aboriginal community who are taking to court the government for the fact that they are going to re-open four-wheel-drive tracks in the Tarkine which will jeopardise aboriginal heritage. It is just shocking that this government is determined to behave in such a manner, as vandals, that is all you can call it. It was bad enough that Minister Burke under the last government failed to protect the Tarkine in its entirety as the Heritage Council had recommended. But he could not avoid protecting those Aboriginal sites. It is an incredibly rich area of Aboriginal heritage and to now see the government open up all of these tracks, many of which have been closed for a very long time, it is just appalling. It will be environmentally shocking, but culturally it will damage, no doubt at all, damage Aboriginal heritage. And the Aboriginal community deserve all of our support in taking this matter to court. The T

Abbott government needs new policies, not new enforcers
Greens Leader Christine Milne says Tony Abbott's frontbench reshuffle won't matter much to everyday Australians who are still being threatened with the same cruel budget measures. "The faces have changed, but not the policies. This government is too arrogant to accept its cruel agenda has been rejected by the community and the Senate," said Senator Milne. "If the Prime Minister doesn't listen to people and change his policies, he's going to find that people will change the Prime Minister. "Tony Abbott seems to think that all he has to do is try some extra stand-over tactics in the economic portfolio and he's going to somehow flog the Senate into submission. Well, it's not going to work. "The Greens are standing there saying we don't support what you're doing, not because of the individuals who are doing it, but because we do not agree with a government determined to govern for the big end of town.
