Milne confirms climate talks breakthrough


Deputy Greens leader Christine Milne has confirmed reports of a carbon tax breakthrough, saying the Multi-Party Climate Change Committee is "on track" to have the scheme starting in July next year. Independent MP Tony Windsor says a deal may be signed off "next week". It is understood agreement has been reached over the amount of compensation to be paid to industry, and a guarantee the carbon tax will switch to a market-based emissions trading scheme in 2015. It is believed the Government has agreed to the Greens' proposal for an independent climate change commission to advise on what ...


Greens Deputy Milne to National Farmers` Federation Congress


Let`s Grasp This Opportunity Addressing the National Farmers' Federation Congress today, Australian Greens Deputy Leader, Senator Christine Milne, urged farmers to seize this tremendous opportunity to shape their own future instead of adapting to changes forced onto them. The Greens and rural independents who will share the balance of power in the new parliament also share elements of a positive vision for rural and regional Australia.

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 ...

Greens urge: Wear your heart on your lapel for real action on climate
Australian Greens Leader Christine Milne says a little-known creature native to tropical north Queensland should be recognised as a symbol of the serious and immediate threat to life presented by global warming. A brooch modelled on the White Lemuroid Ringtail Possum has been unveiled today at the Association for Tropical Biology and Conservation (ATBC) conference at James Cook University in Cairns, to raise awareness of its plight. "I wore a polar bear brooch the day Australia's emissions trading scheme passed through Parliament, because it was such a huge step toward that species' salvation. Now we need to revive real action on climate change and this local possum makes the challenge really hit home," said Senator Milne. Tourists used to visit Mount Lewis, northwest of Cairns, in droves to see these white possums until a severe heatwave devastated the population in late 2005. The few survivors now effectively live on an island in the sky - forced to higher elevations to avoid rising

Greens call for swift appeal for Peter Greste
With the announcement today that Australian journalist Peter Greste will appeal the Egyptian court's conviction and seven-year sentence, Australian Greens Leader Christine Milne says it is incumbent on the Australian Government to press for a speedy resolution of the appeals process. "It is clear that the Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi will not intervene as long as legal processes are underway. It would be a travesty of justice if the appeals process drags on for many months," Senator Milne said. "I am calling on Prime Minister Abbott and Foreign Minister Bishop to make it clear to the Egyptian Government that Australia expects the appeals process to be conducted in a timely manner. "With the Egyptian President having said he wished the journalists had been deported after their arrest, instead of being put on trial, efforts must be stepped up to resolve legal processes as a matter of urgency. "Peter Greste and his Al Jazeera colleagues have been imprisoned since the end of las
