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 ...

Vale Lincoln Siliakis: World Heritage legend
Lincoln Siliakis, a man who dedicated decades of his life to the protection of World Heritage properties has died in Paris. "Lincoln Siliakis never sought publicity or acclaim for the role he played in protecting Australia's places of outstanding universal value but today we should all pay tribute to this legend of World Heritage advocacy," said Australian Greens Senator Christine Milne. "Lincoln was central to the peoples' nomination of the Daintree as World Heritage in the early 1980's, and then became the anchor of the legal team to save the Franklin River. After his move to Paris I joined him there as we campaigned together at UNESCO against the Jabiluka Uranium Mine in the Kakadu World Heritage Area. "His mastery of the French language and his legal skills were invaluable as we met with Ambassadors at UNESCO; pointing out just how determined the Howard government was to develop uranium at the expense of both Aboriginal traditional owners and the environment." Following Australia's
Christine's last Speech in the Senate
On this day of national shame—and that is the only way you can describe it when the government and the Labor Party have completely lost their moral compass—to retrospectively legalise the illegal, under the law as it stands, to send babies into offshore detention indefinitely, I rise here to say how proud I am that the Greens are a strong and rising political force here and around the world, a force for hope, resilience and change in an otherwise bleak political environment. That force for hope, resilience and change was on show here last night as well, as we stood up for addressing global warming, for renewable energy, for the conversion to the low-carbon economy and, instead, watched what I can only describe as the 'hollow men'. I will come back to that a bit later. The Greens are a force for standing up to the only two things that are really in the world: people and nature. We know that economics is simply a tool that governs that relationship. The problem
Nick McKim announced as the new Greens Senator for Tasmania
The Australian Greens are pleased to announce that former Tasmanian Greens Leader Nick McKim has been elected by a ballot of members to become the next Greens Senator for Tasmania. Mr McKim will fill a casual vacancy in the Senate, created by the resignation of Christine Milne. “I want to thank the Tasmanian Greens members for giving me this honour and I will do everything I can to repay the faith they have put in me,” McKim said. “Replacing someone of Christine’s calibre will be a huge challenge, but one that I’m really looking forward to.” “Australia has rarely seen such a reckless and self-serving government. The Greens mission is more urgent now than ever and I can’t wait to join my new colleagues in standing up for a cleaner, healthier and smarter Australia. “It has been a privilege to represent the people of Franklin for the past 13 years and I look forward to representing all Tasmanians and my beloved state of Tasmania in m
