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.

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 ...

Senate Inquiry tomorrow: Should bank executives go to jail when their banks perpetuate white-collar crimes?
Greens Treasury spokesperson, Senator Peter Whish-Wilson, will be attending the white-collar crime Senate Inquiry hearing tomorrow in Melbourne [information below] and will be asking criminologists and regulators, “How tough do we have to make penalties to help stop endemic financial misconduct in Australia’s financial system?” Senator Whish-Wilson said, “In Iceland, they held the bank Chairmen and CEOs responsible for the fraud and market manipulation that was carried out in their name by the bank staff, during the global financial crisis; and they were sent to jail. “In Australia, the bank CEOs and Chairmen get to dismiss widespread wrongdoings as the work of a few bad apples and have escaped scandal after scandal without any personal penalty. In fact, some CEOs have been shamelessly trying-on the notion that they deserve customer service bonuses. “During the last term of Parliament I moved a motion in the Senate to establish an Inquiry into penalties for white-collar cri
Greens welcome KPMG calls for an increase to Newstart
Australian Greens Senator Rachel Siewert has welcomed reaffirmed calls by KPMG for a significant increase to Newstart of $50 a week in its report Reform Agenda for Australia, released today. “The Australian Greens have been campaigning for a long time to increase Newstart, woefully low income support payments mean people are living in poverty and this is another barrier to gaining employment.  “Stakeholders, the Greens and major tax firm KPMG have pointed to evidence that increasing the payment will help pull people out of poverty, will better support people as they search for a job, and will boost the economy. "Over the years the payment has fallen even further behind an acceptable amount. This alone should send a signal that the payment is well overdue for an increase. “Just last week we heard that oil and gas companies may be incorrectly claiming up to $5 billion in tax deductions. Imagine if some of that money went to our most vulnerable who would inject it straight back i
Barnaby must scrap APVMA move
The Greens have called on the federal government to scrap the proposal to move the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority, after a new report showed that less than 10% of current scientists are expected to stay. “Minister Barnaby Joyce has failed to consult with staff, stakeholders and the community,” said the Australian Greens Agriculture spokesperson Senator Janet Rice. “The decision to uproot the lives of APVMA staff and their families to the Member for New England’s own electorate is nothing short of pork barrelling, but he can’t even get that right. “These scientists are highly trained, and we’re going to lose years of experience because the Deputy Prime Minister promised more than he could deliver.” The report (attached) also outlines that shifting the authority will fail to deliver the jobs promised, instead relying on a ‘virtual network’ of scientists. “The delays outlined in the report show just how ill-thought out this plan really is,
SA schools already struggling should not face further budget cuts
The Australian Greens have expressed fears for the future of public education after it was revealed today many Adelaide high schools are struggling to pay the bills. “If South Australian high schools have to cut courses and teaching staff to keep their buildings up to scratch, something is very wrong with the way schools are funded. What is happening in Adelaide is telling of the scarcity of funding across the board for Australian schools,” Greens education spokesperson Senator Hanson-Young said. “While our schools struggle to pay for the basics, Malcolm Turnbull is striding toward an education funding cliff in 2018 with little regard to those already doing it tough. “In South Australia, Gonski funding was aggressively backdated to the final years of the deal in 2018 and 2019. If Malcolm Turnbull is allowed to rip that deal to pieces at the end of 2017, it will be a disaster for our state. “Teachers and schools in South Australia can’t continue to do more with less. “We n
