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.

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 say China trade barriers a grim warning to Abbott: don’t lock us into a doomed coal future
Greens Leader Christine Milne says the reaction to trade barriers imposed by China on coal imports highlights the risks attached to the Abbott government's determination to protect old industry and big business profits. "It's clear the main reason the Abbott government wants a Chinese free trade deal is to underpin coal mining expansion in the Bowen and Galilee Basins and expanded export volumes into the long term. Protecting the profits of the vested interests of the big end of town is his specialty," Senator Milne said. "In the age of global warming it is ridiculous to be pursing a dig it up and ship it away fossil fuel dependent economy, but that's the only kind of economy Tony Abbott understands. "By driving coal mines and coal ports the Abbott government is condemning investors to stranded assets and lost investment dollars. "Divestment from coal and investment in renewable energy is the key for the future of the Australian economy but it is the opposite of what the Abbott Gover

Prevention better than cure, social cohesion is key
The Australian Greens are pushing for a comprehensive plan to strengthen Australian society and help make all Australians safer at home, announcing legislation to establish an independent national body to build social cohesion and prevent extremism. The Australian Centre for Social Cohesion (ACSC) would be tasked with overseeing the development and implementation of key preventative programs that combat social exclusion and stop young Australians from becoming radicalised. "Prevention is much better than cure when it comes to keeping us all safe from risks associated with terrorism, Greens Leader Christine Milne said. "Building a cohesive, tolerant and inclusive community in Australia should be the government's top priority to protect Australia's much loved multiculturalism. "If Tony Abbott and the Labor party are serious about making Australians safer they should invest in programs that bring young Australians of all walks of life together. Money to build communities rather than to
