Opinion pieces

Making an ally of the land in the fight against climate change

01 November 2011

The creation of the Biodiversity Fund demonstrates Labor's continued commitment to deliver good outcomes for the Australian environment.

Stop campaigning against our economy

01 November 2011

Australians are proud of their economy and so they should be - it is one of the strongest in the advanced world.

Labor - a tradition of reform

01 November 2011

Building an energy efficient culture

01 November 2011

Just like Australians have done with water consumption, we need to make a change in the way we think about energy use

01 November 2011

It is profoundly disappointing that the Baillieu government is walking away from those commitments, and policies established by previous Victorian governments, preferring to join Mr Abbott's circus of lies and misinformation.
