SPEECH: Campaign to phase out fossil fuels

In Parliament today, Mark spoke about the community campaign to rapidly phase out fossil fuels and transition our economy to zero carbon emissions. This transition will not be overnight, but it needs to be much faster than any current governments are proposing and certainly faster than anything the federal government in Australia is doing.

QUESTION: Recycling in Parliament House

In Question Time, Mark asked the President of the Legislative Council about recycling in Parliament House.

QUESTION: Freedom of Information

In Question Time, Mark asked the Minister for Health and Wellbeing about his noncompliance with a determination of the Ombudsman to release documents under the Freedom of Information Act (his third question on this matter). 

MOTION: South Australian Bushfires

Today, Mark paid tribute to the efforts of our paid and unpaid firefighters and emergency services personnel who have worked tirelessly for months on end to defend property, life and land. He noted there is much more to say and do in coming months in response to the fires and climate change is at the top of that list for the Greens. 

SPEECH: Professor Dean Jaensch

Today Mark addressed the assertions made by Professor Dean Jaensch in his recent opinion pieces published in The Advertiser on the subject of bushfires and the Greens.
