This month's member meeting includes:

Senator Christine Milne, Australian Greens

Senator Milne will discuss the Greens' climate change policies. The Greens recently proposed a $20 carbon tax to fill the gap until an emissions trading scheme can be passed. Professor Ross Garnaut has separately stated that a transitional carbon tax is a worthwhile idea for Australia. Come and discuss these ideas with Senator Milne who will travel from Hobart to meet us in Melbourne.

Senator Milne's Bio:
