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 ...

What's happened to the Tasmanian Forests Agreement?
While the flow of taxpayers' money to the logging industry from the 2012 Tasmanian Forests Agreement was guaranteed, there was no legislated up-front conservation outcomes. In September 2014, the Hodgman government announced $7 million would be available to buy loggers back into the industry. No other Australian workers have had more multi-million dollar payouts to stay in, exit, and stay in than Tasmanian loggers. In August 2014 the Tasmanian Forest Bill was passed by the Tasmanian Parliament, allowing logging in 147 reserves (454,607 hectares) and 407 conservation areas (657,481 hectares) and making it more difficult for new reserves to be created in the future. It abandons 400,000 hectares of forest earmarked for protection under the Tasmanian Forest Agreement, with the land converting to Forestry Tasmania ownership in six years. The objectives of Conservation Areas and Regional Reserves will be changed to include logging for specialty species. The TFA: Now dead When the Tasma
China Antarctic MOU welcome boost to Tasmanian economy
China's commitment to using Australia as an Antarctic gateway is welcome news for Tasmanians working in the science, research and shipping sectors, Greens senators said today. "The Antarctic and Southern Ocean research sector is worth millions to the Tasmanian economy. China's commitment will help ensure it continues to play a strong role for years to come," Australian Greens Leader Christine Milne said. "What really sets us apart is the quality of research from the University of Tasmania and the national research institutions based here. Commitments by China and Australia to joint research and academic exchanges will be a welcome boost. "This is a hugely beneficial agreement for Tasmania that the Greens have long campaigned for, so now the task is for the federal government to maintain funding for research. "The Abbott government has slashed CSIRO and Antarctic Division funding in this year's budget and has also set its sights on university funding. "The China MOU shows we should be i
PM Abbott lies to French president on climate
Australian Greens Leader Christine Milne says it is a complete deception for Tony Abbott to claim he's acting on climate change with $10 billion in the Clean Energy Finance Corporation, when he plans to abolish that very instrument, and when his government describes it as a complete waste of taxpayers' money. "This is not a cheeky sleight of hand. This is Australia's climate denying Prime Minister telling outright lies to world leaders and international media," said Senator Milne. "Tony Abbott does not intend to ‘do more' to tackle climate change. He intends to undo more, and add the CEFC to the scrapheap he's built with our emissions trading scheme and our mining tax. "The Abbott government has stated over and over again that it considers the CEFC to be a waste of money which it will do everything in its power to abolish, but today Tony Abbott had the gall to brag about the CEFC in front of the French president and foreign press. He did the same thing earlier this week with Ger
