Climate Change

Rosalie Woodruff New Franklin MP

Rosalie Woodruff MP | Greens Member for Franklin

I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to represent the Franklin electorate at the state level.

My six years as a Huon Valley councillor have given me a good feel for the issues in the southern part of the electorate and I look forward to learning more about the eastern shore.

Climate change is the biggest issue facing humanity. Tasmania, with our renewable energy, relatively high rainfall, coastal towns and protected wild places, should be leading the response.

Emissions Reduction Target Woefully Inadequate

Cassy O’Connor MP | Greens Leader and Climate Change spokesperson

The Abbott Liberals have once more revealed they are a bunch of climate Luddites with their woeful 26% emissions reduction target by 2030. 

Our grandchildren will not thank the Liberals for saying they will do so little, so late, and in the face of overwhelming scientific evidence.

Basing a far-off reduction target on 2005 emissions levels is an unscientific farce. The Kyoto baseline year is 1990. 

Christine Milne: Champion of Tasmania

Cassy O'Connor MP | Greens Leader

The formal resignation of Christine Milne from the Australian Senate marks the end of an era in Tasmania. Christine has been at the forefront of politics and the campaign to protect what makes Tasmania unique in the world for the better part of 30 years.

Canberra will certainly miss Christine's formidable intellect and immense heart, her drive and her integrity.
