Happy dog day! This farm Lab supports #paws4climate as she likes nothing better than mild weather, a dam to swim and a damp hole to lay in. The temperature is only 20C today and she is already feeling the heat! Let’s dial down the heat for our pets by ⬇️ GHG emissions.

Lilly here has watched the climate changing over the last 14 years, and thinks it’s about we got some serious climate policy.

Why have you signed the #netzeropetition? Sign now (link in bio) and let us know why in the comments. 🌞🌾🚜💛 Peter Holding, a third-generation farmer from Harden, says “farmers are adapting as fast as they can, but I don’t believe there is any chance we can adapt our way out of this. All adaptation in ag is important, because it gives us a window in which to make change. But we’re using up the window and there’s no change.” ...

Sign the petition calling for the Prime Minister to set an Australia-wide net zero emissions by 2050 policy (links in bio).

——

My name is Anika Molesworth and I raise sheep with my family near Broken Hill. I love the ancient gum trees and incredible wildlife I share my home with. I am proud to grow food for people, and it is breaking my heart that climate change makes it harder and harder for farmers like us to do this.

Last summer, as the rest of the country burned, we sweltered through the hottest summer on record. I have watched the trees die, the wildlife disappear, and our sheep be sent away. I want nothing more than to be able to focus on the day-to-day issues of our farm, be it a busted water pipe, or fixing a fence. But with climate change looming over my future, I have no choice but to take a stand.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison, farmers are looking for leadership from your Government and it is currently lacking. The National Farmers' Federation, representing more than 80,000 Australian farmers, supports an economy wide target of net zero carbon emission by 2050.

We call on you and your government to support this policy and get Australia moving to a low carbon future.

Specifically, we want:

1. As a first step, set a net zero emissions by 2050 target
2. Adopt the policies that will get us there.

Meet the latest in our Climate-Smart Farmer in Focus series, Sam McCardel. After completing the 2018 Victorian Fellowship, Sam was inspired to make significant changes to his farm in Whroo, northern Victoria.

Through the power of pig manure, Sam has been able to transform his property and turn it into a successful farm operation.

"The water-holding capacity of the soil has dramatically improved, and the life in the soil just writhes out of the musky rich dark loam. The soil has come back to life. The diversity of the grasses has also increased and the rootstock depth has improved dramatically. That’s why we can now stand the drought when neighbouring properties can’t so well."

You can read Sam’s story and apply to be a part of the 2020 Victorian Fellowship program through the link in our bio.

Canberra's Land Management has led to massive bushfires across the Country and none of this mismanagement gets included in the numbers.

Australia is lagging Renewables. China built the 'Three Gorges Dam' for low-cost Electricity Generation. Canberra blocks change in Australia.

Canberra's Gas calculations are total rubbish !

Governments can make all the legislation they wish, while ever we are plugged into a 19th century technology based on a second industrial Revolution infrastructure we will make little difference....We need to move into the 21st century

What's the report. I came in late.

Sadly the Three Gorges dam displaced local farmers. Pumped hydro energy storage can be implemented in old mine sites.

I agree canberra blocks good solutions.

Bushfire "Carbon Dioxide", never gets included in the national numbers. Canberra can calculate it "down to the tree" because they can count trees by Satelite.
