China Antarctic MOU welcome boost to Tasmanian economy
China's commitment to using Australia as an Antarctic gateway is welcome news for Tasmanians working in the science, research and shipping sectors, Greens senators said today. "The Antarctic and Southern Ocean research sector is worth millions to the Tasmanian economy. China's commitment will help ensure it continues to play a strong role for years to come," Australian Greens Leader Christine Milne said. "What really sets us apart is the quality of research from the University of Tasmania and the national research institutions based here. Commitments by China and Australia to joint research and academic exchanges will be a welcome boost. "This is a hugely beneficial agreement for Tasmania that the Greens have long campaigned for, so now the task is for the federal government to maintain funding for research. "The Abbott government has slashed CSIRO and Antarctic Division funding in this year's budget and has also set its sights on university funding. "The China MOU shows we should be i


PM Abbott lies to French president on climate
Australian Greens Leader Christine Milne says it is a complete deception for Tony Abbott to claim he's acting on climate change with $10 billion in the Clean Energy Finance Corporation, when he plans to abolish that very instrument, and when his government describes it as a complete waste of taxpayers' money. "This is not a cheeky sleight of hand. This is Australia's climate denying Prime Minister telling outright lies to world leaders and international media," said Senator Milne. "Tony Abbott does not intend to ‘do more' to tackle climate change. He intends to undo more, and add the CEFC to the scrapheap he's built with our emissions trading scheme and our mining tax. "The Abbott government has stated over and over again that it considers the CEFC to be a waste of money which it will do everything in its power to abolish, but today Tony Abbott had the gall to brag about the CEFC in front of the French president and foreign press. He did the same thing earlier this week with Ger

What's happened to the Tasmanian Forests Agreement?
While the flow of taxpayers' money to the logging industry from the 2012 Tasmanian Forests Agreement was guaranteed, there was no legislated up-front conservation outcomes. In September 2014, the Hodgman government announced $7 million would be available to buy loggers back into the industry. No other Australian workers have had more multi-million dollar payouts to stay in, exit, and stay in than Tasmanian loggers. In August 2014 the Tasmanian Forest Bill was passed by the Tasmanian Parliament, allowing logging in 147 reserves (454,607 hectares) and 407 conservation areas (657,481 hectares) and making it more difficult for new reserves to be created in the future. It abandons 400,000 hectares of forest earmarked for protection under the Tasmanian Forest Agreement, with the land converting to Forestry Tasmania ownership in six years. The objectives of Conservation Areas and Regional Reserves will be changed to include logging for specialty species. The TFA: Now dead When the Tasma

Hands off our ABC
Senator Milne's statement Thanks to the CPSU for organising today's rally, I'm sorry parliamentary sittings mean I can't be there. ABC production in Tasmania has been a vital training ground and professional opportunity for our film and television industry. That's what we told ABC management when it originally cut the nightly 7.30 Report from Tasmania. But they said, you will now have the new Stateline. Then that was rebadged and now is set for the axe. We are tired of the lies and deaths by a thousand cuts. ABC management scrapped our TV production unit and now our local current affairs is on the chopping block, thanks to the Abbott government. Enough is enough. Tasmania is not a walkover. Regional communities like ours need the ABC to provide independent local current affairs. We have to stand together and stand up to the Abbott government, and say no more cuts to our ABC!
