    I would argue that mining is non-renewable and finite. We need to be finding ways of making profits from other things than mining as well as finding renewable sources of energy. In a few decades it will all be gone and then what will we do?

    The greens have also become more than about the environment. They have become the party that labor has strayed from - for low and middle class families. I doubt the Greens will ever lead the nation, but they are becoming a powerful voice.

    Um. Yes they do. Revenue has been increasing, despite Swan trying to paint the picture otherwise. It raised 6% this year alone. Swan has been getting more for the last few years than what Costello ever got.
    Interesting graph. So, according to this, from 2007 until 2011 the revenue was either stable or decreased. Any chance we could see this graph adjusted for inflation? That would give a better idea of the actual decrease. Oh, and those last 5 values look like they are projections - not really useful for this discussion.

    They understand that there needs to be balance, they wouldn't just shut down the mining industry, but they probably wouldn't grant mining licenses in places where people live or national trust areas. Which would be a refreshing change.

    I agree with most of their policies but mining is basically holding up the economy at the moment and I wonder sometimes when I hear people say they support the greens what would happen if they actually came to power.
    Sorry - off topic a bit!

    PS - you can bet your bottom dollar that they would halt selling off our food producing land to foreigners, they would concentrate on us being able to sustain ourselves. Which would also be bleeding refreshing!

    I preferred when the greens were mostly about the environment. Some of their current policies when looked into beyond the surface are quite scary

    At least the greens are up front about their policies and publish them ALL on their website.

    Which ones are scary? I have never heard a greens policy and thought that it was scary - the same cannot be said for Libs.

    Vote for the Liberals if you are very very wealthy. They will take care of you.

    Australia, is headed down the same path as the USA, with the gap between rich and poor widening, and middle class wages going down, and the poor getting poorer and poorer.
