Queensland Senator Larissa Waters and Queensland Greens energy spokesperson Scott Thomson today launched the Greens’ policy for a Queensland Renewable Energy Target (RET), at the Brisbane Climate Action Rally.
“We need a Queensland RET to ensure that the great take up of renewable energy in our Sunshine State continues, regardless of Tony Abbott’s attacks,” Senator Larissa Waters, Australian Greens environment spokesperson, said.
The Australian Greens said today that new evidence on the dire inadequacy of allowance payments, including Newstart, shows the urgent need for the Government to increase levels of income support and move away from irresponsible changes to payment indexation.
Introducing the bill, Pennicuik said; “The momentum in the community for a ban on battery cages throughout Australia is becoming so strong that even large retailers are stepping up on this important animal welfare issue.
“The Victorian Environment is in decline and there is no plan to fix it,” says Greens candidate for Ripon, Rod May.
Referring to the release yesterday of the VAGO on the Effectiveness of Catchment Management Authorities, Mr May confirmed the Greens strong support for CMAs and reaffirmed the auditor generals view that they needed better government support if our environment and the productivity it supported were to avoid collapse.
