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. "What a great opportunity that our parliament is getting a renewed focus on rural and regional Australia just as the vital issues of climate change, ...

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 ...

Turnbull govt MP before Queensland corruption inquiry – time for National ICAC
The need for a national ICAC and political donation reform is in the spotlight again following news that a Turnbull government MP has been called before a Queensland corruption inquiry, Greens democracy spokesperson Senator Lee Rhiannon said. “Turnbull government MP Stuart Robert has been ordered to appear before the Queensland Crime and Corruption Commission’s inquiry into claims of questionable political donations,” Senator Rhiannon said. “A similar inquiry cannot be conducted at the federal level as the major parties have blocked the formation of a national corruption watch dog. “The Coalition and Labor are pathetic that they have not moved on this essential reform. “Mr Roberts was sacked as a Turnbull government minister over his involvement with dubious political donations from players associated with the mining industry. “One of those donors, mining mogul Paul Marks, has had open door access to senior MPs and top bureaucrats thanks to Mr Robert. “The Robert’s sa
Aboriginal Legal Services should not have been excluded from race-hate inquiry: Greens
It is atrocious that the Government excluded Aboriginal Legal Services from giving evidence at a senate inquiry into race-hate laws, Australian Greens Senator Rachel Siewert said today. “When committee chair LNP Senator Ian MacDonald excluded Aboriginal Legal Services from giving evidence at the inquiry, he excluded a voice for our First peoples. The committee should have heard from these important services. “Aboriginal Legal Services are a very important voice in the national discussion on changes to 18c and race hate. For years and years they have worked on the ground with people who experience daily racial vilification and deserve to be heard. “Senator MacDonald should not have excluded Aboriginal Legal Services from giving evidence and I believe the report into this issue will be poorer for it”.

International Day of Forests 2017
Forests are Australia's hidden treasure. Entering our forests, it is invigorating to breathe in the fresh air and hear cascades of clear water, clean enough to drink straight out of the creeks and rivers. Plus, they are some of the most carbon-rich forests in the world. But Australians have been failed by the way our forests have been managed. Over the past 20 years, areas designated for logging have been exempted from Australia's environment laws. Even open-cut mines do not get that level of exemption. These logging laws, known as Regional Forest Agreements, were meant to protect jobs and protect the environment, and they have failed on both counts. They are wrecking communities. Take Heyfield in Victoria. My thoughts are with the people whose lives are changed by the decision to close the Heyfield mill. The Heyfield mill crisis has come from mismanagement by successive governments at both the state and federal levels, and calls in
The Government should not have Accenture ‘transforming’ Centrelink, recipients have been through enough
Australian Greens Senator Rachel Siewert has expressed concern that the company behind the bungled Tax Office overhaul has been selected to ‘transform’ the Centrelink system, saying that Centrelink recipients have been through enough. “Centrelink recipients, some of which have just had their payments cut by legislation passed yesterday, should not be subject to anymore poorly operating systems. “They have a track record of taking a system and making it worse for many users, this was demonstrated by the bungled Tax Office rollout. “I agree the Centrelink system is broken, but it should not be put in the hands of a company that have had to overhaul a major departmental system before and had major problems. “I will be following this up with the department with questions on notice”.  Media ReleaseFamily, Ageing, Community and Disability Services
