No time for looking back
I acknowledge that we meet here on land of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin nation, and pay my respects to their elders past and present. The year 2015 will be seen in retrospect as the year of step-change for solar and renewables more generally. 2013 marked the year that more renewables were deployed globally than fossil fuels.  In 2014 a Saudi-government backed conglomerate funded by their oil profits made history in a small, but very significant way when they won a tender to supply large scale solar in neighbouring Dubai. Without any subsidies of any form, they got the project up for just 6 cents a kilowatt hour. The Chief Executive of Bloomberg Finance has called this the ‘Hussein Bolt’ of the energy world – a record setter.  Interestingly the bid that came second would have also been a world record. What joy it brings us all to think that just four years ago costs for building large scale solar were around 35 cents per kwh. Despite these milestones,

Statement from Senator Christine Milne
Today Senator Christine Milne has resigned her position as Leader of the Australian Greens. Senator Milne informed the Party Room this morning in Canberra and a ballot for the new leader will occur today at 11.30am followed by a Press Conference at 1.30pm in the Mural Hall. The Tasmanian Greens preselection process for the 2016 election opens shortly. Senator Milne told the Party Room that having decided not to contest the election for another six year Senate term, she resigned as Leader. "It is with a mix of optimism, pride, excitement and sadness that I am resigning the leadership and leaving the Senate, Senator Milne said. "I have achieved what I set out to achieve when I took over the leadership. The Greens have gone from strength to strength with solid election results and a growing, engaged party membership. "I promised a more cabinet-style, collaborative approach to leadership. I am so proud of the way my colleagues have responded. We are a strong, capable, visionary Greens team

Christine Milne's Final Press Club Address as Leader of the Australian Greens
I begin by acknowledging the Ngunnawal people, the traditional owners of the land on which we meet and pay my respects to their elders past and present. In doing so I condemn in the strongest terms the Prime Minister’s decision last year to slash $500m from Aboriginal programmes and his decision to back Western Australian Colin Barnett in closing remote communities in WA, claiming they are a ‘lifestyle choice’. This funding must be restored in this year’s budget. After so long in politics working for the apology, working towards reconciliation, recognition in the Constitution; it is very clear to me that if we are genuine about reconciliation, closing the gap and respecting Aboriginal connection to country, then Australia’s history of forced dispossession must not be repeated. National stories only mean something if they are backed by consistent, philosophical action. That is what it will take to get the recognition in the Constitution that we need for Au
