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.

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 warn Tasmania: Don’t kill the goose that laid tourism’s golden egg
The Australian Greens say the Tasmanian government cannot be trusted to properly assess the environmental impacts of development in national parks and World Heritage areas, for which it has today opened expressions of interest. "Unfortunately in Tasmania we have a government with the mentality that if you can't dig it up or cut it down then you should put a resort on it. That's a very bad idea," said Greens Leader Christine Milne. "The Greens want Tasmania to benefit from a strong tourism industry, so the Hodgman government has to get real. "If you want to sell your reputation globally and you want to talk wilderness, you have to maintain wilderness values," said Senator Milne. "I would have zero confidence in any panel set up by the Hodgman government to assess the merit of these projects. "With the Commonwealth now handing approvals back to the states, what we'd see is the same people who've allowed mining in areas which should be protected giving the tick-off to resorts. "You can
