Larissa Waters sums-up debate on Landholders’ Right to Refuse (Gas and Coal) Bill

06 Mar 2014

I rise to make some concluding remarks about this bill. And I'm really proud of all my fellow Greens senators for the contributions that they've made, speaking on beha of the communities in their respective states, and the rights of those people to clean air, to clean water, to a healthy climate and to strong, united communities and to the right to continue to grow the food that we all rely upon, into the future.

Larissa Waters second reading speech of Landholders' Right to Refuse (Gas and Coal) Bill

06 Mar 2014

I rise to speak to the Greens bill the Landholders' Right to Refuse (Gas and Coal) Bill 2013. As people well know, because this bill has been on foot for quite a while-it was on foot in the last parliament-this bill gives landholders the right to say no to dangerous coal seam gas, shale and tight gas mining on their land as well as to coalmines. Here in Australia, as we all know, we have so little good-quality farmland, so little good-quality agricultural land. It just seems absolutely outrageous to the Greens that the good-quality land we do have is not safe from being turned into massive mines and it is not safe from being pockmarked with coal seam gas wells, shale gas wells or tight gas wells.

Larissa Waters Speech on Clean Energy Legislation Repeal Bill

03 Mar 2014

March 3rd, 2014: In order to understand the significance of what this government is now seeking to do in overturning, through this climate change bills repeal package, the country's first national climate laws, it is necessary to reflect on the clean energy package-its genesis and its success. The clean energy package was a truly remarkable and incredible achievement of the last parliament. In my short time here, it has been the most significant day I have had the pleasure of being involved in and being a part of. On that day, I was really proud of this parliament. I was proud that we had started to take the action necessary to safeguard our way of life-not just for my own daughter but for all future generations.

Senate Estimates: Larissa Waters asking about impacts of Queensland land clearing on greenhouse emissions targets.

24 Feb 2014

As you may be aware, the Queensland government has recently watered down those vegetation management laws, taken away regrowth protection, weakened riparian protection, stalled prosecutions-a number of changes have been made. The estimate is that that will mean there are 300,000 to 750,000 hectares now able to be cleared. Is your department tracking what that means for our national emissions?
