306  Chair of the Education, Employment and Workplace Relations Legislation Committee (Senator Marshall): To move—That the Senate—

(a) notes:

(i) the opening statement made by the President of Fair Work Australia on 1 June 2010 during his appearance at an estimates hearing of the Education, Employment and Workplace Relations Legislation Committee, and

(ii) in particular, the request made in that statement that the Senate reconsider its order of 28 October 2009 which requires that, on each occasion on which the Education, Employment and Workplace Relations Legislation Committee meets to consider estimates in relation to Fair Work Australia, the President of Fair Work Australia appear before the committee to answer questions; and

987  Leader of the Australian Greens (Senator Milne): To move—That the Senate—

(a) acknowledges proposals submitted by the Federated States of Micronesia, and by Canada, Mexico and the United States of America, to amend the Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer to regulate and phase-down production and consumption of hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) with a high global warming potential, that have support of at least 108 Parties and are on the agenda for consideration for the 4th year in a row at the Meeting of the Parties in Geneva from 12 November to 16 November 2012 [25th anniversary meeting];

(b) recognises that:

(i) at the Rio+20 Conference earlier in 2012, the nations of the world agreed on a final document that recognised that the phase-out of ozone depleting substances was resulting in a rapid increase in the use and release of high global warming potential HFCs to the environment, and supported a gradual phase-down in the consumption and production of HFCs, and

(ii) it is time for the Montreal Protocol to fully embrace its obligations and act decisively to regulate HFCs in order to avoid undermining efforts to arrest and reverse climate change by largely negating anticipated reductions in CO2, and to reduce the threat of crossing tipping points for abrupt, irreversible and catastrophic climate changes - tipping points many leading scientists now warn may be only a few years away; and

(c) calls on the Government to urge the Governments of India, China and Brazil to cease blocking discussion and agreement of the proposals from the Federated States of Micronesia, and from Canada, Mexico and the United States of America sought by the majority of Parties, to work diplomatically to raise the global community’s level of ambition and to actively work at the highest levels to achieve an agreement in 2013 to drive a global HFC phase-out under the Montreal Protocol.
