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.

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 ...

Greste's shocking show trial, PM Abbott must put all diplomatic options on the table - Milne
Greens Leader Christine Milne says the Prime Minister should immediately intervene with the Egyptian President and consider all diplomatic options regardless of any avenues of appeal being followed by the Greste legal team. "This has been a shocking show trial. It is a terrible day, not only for Peter Greste and his family but for the free press across the world," Senator Milne said. "I have zero confidence in the integrity of the Egyptian legal system that has imprisoned journalists for reporting the news, and which sentences protesters to death. "Prime Minister Tony Abbott and Australia must now lead international action to intervene with the Egyptian government to secure the release of Peter Greste and void this ridiculous verdict. "All diplomatic options, including sanctions, should be on the table. "If Egypt wants any hope of re-joining the international community with any standing or respect, it must stand for a free press and release Peter Greste and his colleagues immediately."

Common sense prevails on Tassie forests
Australian Greens Leader Christine Milne has praised the World Heritage Committee decision overnight to uphold Tasmania's Wilderness World Heritage boundaries as a victory for common sense. "This is a great win for the forests, for wildlife and for Tasmania," Senator Milne said. "It's been clear for decades that these forests are of world heritage value, the only person unable to see it is Tony Abbott. "Thankfully the world community doesn't believe political point scoring is a legitimate reason to abandon a globally significant area and to destroy the outstanding universal values for which it is famous. "This is a win for common sense, the forests and people power. "We've seen thousands of Australians hit the streets in support of these forests and a Senate inquiry into the delisting proposal received thousands of submissions against it. "Mr Abbott should now rule out any more tampering with the area and commit to the funding needed to look after it properly. "This includes assessing
