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 ...

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 ...

Today Senator Christine Milne has resigned her position as Leader of the Australian Greens.

Christine Milne's Final Press Club Address as Leader of the Australian Greens
I begin by acknowledging the Ngunnawal people, the traditional owners of the land on which we meet and pay my respects to their elders past and present. In doing so I condemn in the strongest terms the Prime Minister’s decision last year to slash $500m from Aboriginal programmes and his decision to back Western Australian Colin Barnett in closing remote communities in WA, claiming they are a ‘lifestyle choice’. This funding must be restored in this year’s budget. After so long in politics working for the apology, working towards reconciliation, recognition in the Constitution; it is very clear to me that if we are genuine about reconciliation, closing the gap and respecting Aboriginal connection to country, then Australia’s history of forced dispossession must not be repeated. National stories only mean something if they are backed by consistent, philosophical action. That is what it will take to get the recognition in the Constitution that we need for Au
