Attacks on Tasmania continue despite freight assistance
Greens Leader Christine Milne has welcomed extra federal funding for Tasmanian freight subsidies, but says overall the Abbott government is leaving the state worse off. "Mr Abbott, we welcome some help with the Freight Equalisation Scheme, but we recognise that you've taken more from Tasmania than you're giving back," Senator Milne said. "Last year Mr Abbott's government cut back the level of subsidy going to the Freight Equalisation Scheme, so they're making up for what they took out, but at the same time they're attacking health and education services in Tasmania. "It's good that the government has handed over some money for the Freight Equalisation Scheme, but they've got to back off their attack on our university and on research and development. "Tasmania lost $70 million a year when the government abandoned the polluter-pays principle, and now they're attacking the Renewable Energy Target. "I really welcome any money that the government is prepared to put into the Freight Equalis

Aid for Vanuatu welcome and essential but not enough – Milne
Greens Leader Christine Milne has welcomed Australia's commitment of $5 million in aid and medical personnel for the island nation of Vanuatu in the wake of Cyclone Pam, but says regional disasters will get worse if more is not done to reduce the pollution that is causing global warming. "Our thoughts are with the people of Vanuatu and all those impacted by the ferocity of Cyclone Pam. I know that all Australians' hearts go out to all the victims, their families and those who have lost their homes and livelihoods," Senator Milne said. "I welcome the speedy response of the Australian Government to immediately send aid and on-ground assistance, it is our duty to our smaller island neighbours. "Aid is essential but not enough. We will be hypocrites if we continue to make their lives worse with more of the coal mines and exports that cause global warming. "As long as Australia continues to export coal and fails to reduce pollution, we are directly contributing to the more severe extreme w

Tasmania doesn’t need gas and oil fracking
The realities of global warming are pushing the world to abandon fossil fuels and take up renewable energy at an ever increasing rate. Tasmania's investment in renewable energy and our as yet untapped solar and geothermal resources, place us in a prime position to flourish this century. We need to capitalise on these natural advantages to attract energy users to the state who want the clean brand. These businesses can help us drive Tasmania's new, clean economy. What we don't need is gas and oil fracking. Why would we support a new fossil fuel industry at the end of the fossil fuel age when we already have the energy answers for the future? Why would we sacrifice our clean water, air and land for short-term export sales of gas and oil? Tasmanian agriculture will be less impacted under global warming scenarios, with our rainfall and temperatures not as drastically affected. Environmentalist Lester Brown has quite rightly said countries will be fighting over food this century as they ha
