The Member for Indooroopilly, Ronan Lee, is Queensland's first Greens MP. Mr Lee resigned from the Labor Party today.
Mr Lee, who won Indooroopilly from the Liberals in 2001 and then retained the seat in 2004 and 2006, says he will provide a strong, sensible response to the climate crisis for Queensland.
Mr Lee said, "Queensland needs to take advantage of its natural advantages to make our state the world's leading solar power economy".
"We also need to focus our infrastructure spending on building a world-class public transport system"
