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. "What a great opportunity that our parliament is getting a renewed focus on rural and regional Australia just as the vital issues of climate change, ...


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 ...

Abbott government must heed IPCC report and step up climate action
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has released its long-anticipated fifth report and the Australian Greens say the message is clear: no one on the planet will be unaffected by climate change and governments must act to protect their communities. "In the face of more calls for a global response, the Abbott government wants to rip up every policy and tear down every defence that Australia has against climate change," said Greens Leader Christine Milne. "This report shows that climate change is overwhelming and will affect every aspect of our lives. Not only will it dramatically impact the natural world we live in, it is an economic issue, an employment issue, a health, housing, and agricultural issue. It's an immigration and a transportation issue. "Prime Minister Abbott's refusal to include consideration of climate change in his drought relief package is a case in point. The cost of not acting is far greater than the cost of action, so why is Tony Abbott so intent on exposi
World heritage fabrication exposed at Senate Inquiry
Claims from the Abbott and Hodgman governments that the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area is degraded are nothing but a smokescreen to increase logging, says Australian Greens Leader Christine Milne. "I established this Senate inquiry to look at the government's proposal to slash the size of our World Heritage Area, and to test the Prime Minister's claims that the area to be excised was degraded," Senator Milne said during a break in the inquiry's public hearing in Hobart today. "We've heard from an array of witnesses and submission writers who have overwhelmingly refuted the government's claim. "The vast bulk of the 74,000 hectares the government wants to remove from the World Heritage list contains high conservation forest, globally significant geomorphic features and sites with unique cultural values. "This area was acknowledged in 2013 by the World Heritage Committee as having Outstanding Universal Values and nothing has changed, except that we've had a federal and state ele
Christine Milne's address to the National Press Club
Australian Greens Leader Senator Christine Milne addressed the National Press Club about the WA senate election and Tony Abbott's inability to negotiate with the senate. Transcript below I begin by acknowledging the Ngunnawal and Ngambri peoples the traditional owners of the land on which we meet and acknowledge their elders past and present. And in doing so, I commit to the constitutional recognition of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and reject immediately any question over the need to retain aboriginal history as part of our curriculum. Can you believe it, we have a national effort to close the gap between aboriginal health, education, life expectancy and the wider community and, at the same time, a government that is set to remove indigenous history from our classrooms, abandon the Gonski education reforms which direct funding to the children most in need and repeal laws th
