This morning, as reports come in that the Japanese whaling fleet has left for the summer hunt, Australian Greens Senator Peter Whish-Wilson has called on Tony Abbott to honor his government's election commitment to send an Australian Customs vessel to the Southern Ocean Whale Sanctuary.
Australian Greens Leader Christine Milne has expressed profound sadness at the passing of the great Nelson Mandela, but says the world will celebrate his life as a gift to South Africa, the world and all of humankind.
Tony Abbott’s clean energy repeal legislation has reached the Senate. We secured an agreement with Labor to consider the different elements of our clean energy laws separately to make it harder for Abbott to abolish initiatives like the Clean Energy Finance Corporation that are already working.
The Assistant Treasurer is on the record saying he’ll take another look at the CEFC. We need Coalition Senators to know exactly why the Clean Energy Finance Corporation is worth saving.
