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.

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. 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 ...

Congratulations Kim Booth on terrific parliamentary career
Kim Booth has served Tasmania and the people of Bass with passion and dedication over 13 years in the Tasmanian Parliament and he will be greatly missed in public life by the community and Tasmanian Greens, senator and former Australian Greens Leader Christine Milne said today. “I first met Kim Booth in 1988 when he played a fundraising gig for the farmers at Wesley Vale opposing North Broken Hill’s proposed pulp mill, and he hasn’t stopped campaigning since for a clean, green and clever Tasmania,” Senator Milne said. “Kim Booth has dedicated himself to transition the forest industry out of industrial, native forest logging and was a stalwart in the battle against Gunns’ pulp mill and shining a light on the corruption that surrounded the entire approval process. “No one can forget “shreddergate”, when the strong and forensic action Kim took to piece together critical evidence contributed to the end of the Lennon era. “Kim&
"I've heard a lot of drivel"
I've heard a lot of drivel in a decade in the Senate and often it just is drivel to fill in time and that's precisely what's going on here tonight - anyone listening to this here tonight should know that this is a filibuster. That's because out in the backrooms the crossbenchers are trying to stitch up an even worse deal. The government has its tail up because it's got the Labor Party to cave in to 33 GWh. They got them to cave in on forest logging because the Labor Party did not make it a condition on accepting this deal that they give rid of native forest logging. And now we've got the anti-wind, anti-science, anti-future, pro-logging group from the crossbench negotiating with the Government to see what other disasters they can incorporate into the RET.That’s exactly what’s going on now. I call it drivel for this reason. Nobody who has spoken on this, clearly, has ever been to a coup in
