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 ...

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 ...

Aid for Vanuatu welcome and essential but not enough – Milne
Greens Leader Christine Milne has welcomed Australia's commitment of $5 million in aid and medical personnel for the island nation of Vanuatu in the wake of Cyclone Pam, but says regional disasters will get worse if more is not done to reduce the pollution that is causing global warming. "Our thoughts are with the people of Vanuatu and all those impacted by the ferocity of Cyclone Pam. I know that all Australians' hearts go out to all the victims, their families and those who have lost their homes and livelihoods," Senator Milne said. "I welcome the speedy response of the Australian Government to immediately send aid and on-ground assistance, it is our duty to our smaller island neighbours. "Aid is essential but not enough. We will be hypocrites if we continue to make their lives worse with more of the coal mines and exports that cause global warming. "As long as Australia continues to export coal and fails to reduce pollution, we are directly contributing to the more severe extreme w

Tasmania doesn’t need gas and oil fracking
The realities of global warming are pushing the world to abandon fossil fuels and take up renewable energy at an ever increasing rate. Tasmania's investment in renewable energy and our as yet untapped solar and geothermal resources, place us in a prime position to flourish this century. We need to capitalise on these natural advantages to attract energy users to the state who want the clean brand. These businesses can help us drive Tasmania's new, clean economy. What we don't need is gas and oil fracking. Why would we support a new fossil fuel industry at the end of the fossil fuel age when we already have the energy answers for the future? Why would we sacrifice our clean water, air and land for short-term export sales of gas and oil? Tasmanian agriculture will be less impacted under global warming scenarios, with our rainfall and temperatures not as drastically affected. Environmentalist Lester Brown has quite rightly said countries will be fighting over food this century as they ha
