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.

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 ...

Greens welcome union for remote and regional Australians forced onto CDP
Australian Greens Senator Rachel Siewert has welcomed the ACTU establishing the First Nations Workers Alliance, a new union to protect people struggling to find work who are forced into the Community Development Programme (CDP) in regional and remote Australia. “The CDP imposes unreasonable mutual obligations that are not imposed on job seekers in the metropolitan area. I have long said it is discriminatory to Aboriginal people out bush and has done more harm than good. “The number of penalties for those on the CDP are very high, because many cannot meet harsh mutual obligations. Experts were raising alarm bells that this meant many were being pushed further into poverty and food wasn’t being put on the table for kids. “It has always seemed bizarre and unfair to me that these different rules exist and it has been detrimental to those forced to take part. I am glad there is a union that will stick up for those caught up in this program. “The senate inquiry into the CDP should
NSW government under pressure to back off Millers Point and Sirius eviction plans
A group of prominent Sydney residents are calling on the NSW Liberal-National government to drop their eviction plans for the remaining Millers Point residents. The situation is at a critical stage with the NSW Family and Community Services (FACS) refusing to accept the recommendations of the Housing Appeals Committee, which means evictions could start any day. Responding to claims that the last 24 tenants are being made final “formal offers” which if they do not accept will result in eviction, Australian Greens spokesperson for Housing, Senator Rhiannon said: “Today the Save Millers Point group is releasing a public statement which calls on the NSW government to back off the remaining tenants and preserve the Sirius Building for public housing. “A number of Millers Point residents have told me they will not leave their community and have appealed for people to stand with them to resist government eviction plans. “Claims that FACS is refusing to accept the recommendations of
SA hits the jackpot on Tesla deal, time for Turnbull to show his hand
The Australian Greens have welcomed the State Government and Elon Musk’s announcement that a deal to build the world’s largest battery in South Australia will go ahead. “When Elon Musk laid down the gauntlet to install battery storage in South Australia in 100 days, or it was free, the Greens urged the State Government to double down on this exciting wager,” Senator for South Australia Sarah Hanson-Young said. “This has thrust South Australia into the future, as well as putting us on the world map as the home of the largest battery in the world. But now it’s time for Malcolm Turnbull to fix the energy market rules to make the most of this amazing hand we’ve been dealt. “The ball is now in the Prime Minister’s court – he has the power to fix the market so it can't keep being gamed by the big old power companies who've been screwing SA for too long. This is a win for householders because power prices will be forced down, not to mention a win for the people of Jamestow
Nuclear weapons: immoral, illegitimate, illegal
The United Nations has voted overwhelmingly to adopt a treaty banning the use and threat of use of nuclear weapons. The final vote of 122 to 1, with 1 abstention, leaves no doubt as to the scale of the global movement for abolition. “Today the world stood up to the nine nuclear weapons states and their proxies, and moved to put nuclear weapons on the same legal footing as chemical and biological weapons,” said Australian Greens Senator Scott Ludlam. “At a time of rising nuclear tensions, this is an overwhelmingly positive initiative and one that the Abbott/Turnbull Government should have strongly supported. Instead, they were missing when the rest of the world was showing leadership. “If the existing nuclear weapons cartel are serious about keeping North Korea out of their club, the negotiating leverage they are looking for is right here at the United Nations. The election of Donald Trump has blown away any illusions that existing nuclear weapons are in safe hands, and the D
