Congratulations Kim Booth on terrific parliamentary career
Kim Booth has served Tasmania and the people of Bass with passion and dedication over 13 years in the Tasmanian Parliament and he will be greatly missed in public life by the community and Tasmanian Greens, senator and former Australian Greens Leader Christine Milne said today. “I first met Kim Booth in 1988 when he played a fundraising gig for the farmers at Wesley Vale opposing North Broken Hill’s proposed pulp mill, and he hasn’t stopped campaigning since for a clean, green and clever Tasmania,” Senator Milne said. “Kim Booth has dedicated himself to transition the forest industry out of industrial, native forest logging and was a stalwart in the battle against Gunns’ pulp mill and shining a light on the corruption that surrounded the entire approval process. “No one can forget “shreddergate”, when the strong and forensic action Kim took to piece together critical evidence contributed to the end of the Lennon era. “Kim&

"I've heard a lot of drivel"
I've heard a lot of drivel in a decade in the Senate and often it just is drivel to fill in time and that's precisely what's going on here tonight - anyone listening to this here tonight should know that this is a filibuster. That's because out in the backrooms the crossbenchers are trying to stitch up an even worse deal. The government has its tail up because it's got the Labor Party to cave in to 33 GWh. They got them to cave in on forest logging because the Labor Party did not make it a condition on accepting this deal that they give rid of native forest logging. And now we've got the anti-wind, anti-science, anti-future, pro-logging group from the crossbench negotiating with the Government to see what other disasters they can incorporate into the RET.That’s exactly what’s going on now. I call it drivel for this reason. Nobody who has spoken on this, clearly, has ever been to a coup in


Protect TWWHA: Abbott government on notice
Australian Greens Senator Christine Milne says this weekend's report from the World Heritage Committee (WHC) should send a strong signal that Prime Minister Tony Abbott and Premier Will Hodgman will not get away with their blatant attempt to undermine the values of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. The WHC has put the Australian Government on notice that its proposed management plan for the TWWHA is of "concern," that "mineral exploration and exploitation is incompatible with World Heritage status," and that "commercial logging and mining" are not permitted within the entire property. "I wrote to all members of the WHC drawing their attention to the Australian government's efforts to undermine Tasmania's World Heritage area with the draft management plan, and I'm pleased the Committee has responded with this clear warning," said Senator Milne. "How many times does the United Nations have to tell Australia that World Heritage areas are not quarries to be dug up, cut down or

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
