IN THE NEWS

  • Solar booming in Victoria

    Victorian Greens leader Greg Barber says the latest data shows solar is booming in Victoria, but changes in state and federal government policies are a risk to the industry.

    “Australia’s solar revolution is slashing household electricity bills and creating jobs in an exciting new industry,” Mr Barber said.

    “The growth in solar is great news for households and the environment, but cutting into the profit margins of power companies and coal powered electricity generators.

  • Greens welcome Big Hill back down

    Victorian Greens leader Greg Barber has welcomed Matthew Guy’s recommendation not to approve the Stawell open cut mine.

    “This is a victory for common sense,” Mr Barber said.

    “The Greens have been fighting this mine alone, while the Labor and Liberal parties sat on the fence.

    “It is good that the government as finally seen sense and accepted the Environmental Effects Inquiry Panel recommendations.

    “This project probably never made economic sense and the risks to the health of the nearby residents were far too great.

  • 'Perverse'' pedestrian crossing rules must change

    Victoria Greens leader Greg Barber says the rules for the location of new pedestrian crossings must be changed to save lives, prevent injuries and encourage walking for health.

    "Many communities have lobbied for safer crossings and been stonewalled by VicRoads perverse rules. Until the death or injury toll starts to rise, your request can't qualify. I thought it was VicRoads job to prevent road injuries,” Mr Barber said.

  • Standing room only on trams

    Greens candidates have measured overcrowding across Melbourne’s tram network, finding passengers standing for more than 40 minutes before seats become available on evening peak services.

    Victorian Greens leader Greg Barber said, “It took 42 minutes to get a seat on the 75 to Vermont South, 36 minutes on the 86 to Bundoora, and 37 minutes on the 6 to Glen Iris. On other routes passengers were standing for between 20 and 35 minutes before seats became available.
