With less than a month to go until the Glasgow Climate Summit, it’s crunch time to ramp up the pressure on the government on their climate policies.

Tell the Prime Minister we need to make substantial emissions reductions this decade to protect farming families.

Love your work standing up for the climate and our communities @marionsvineyard !! 🙌🙌🙌
・・・
Yes, yes we are!

We are making sure that we are in the best possible position for climate change by growing more soil carbon, making sure we capture as much free cloud juice as possible, and encouraging soil microbiology with biodynamic preparations.

We are expanding our plantings of Syrah, Franc and Tempranillo and we may even be able to make a full bodied Zinfandel!!

Planning for the future of our third generation.

We had such a great time at the @yorke_peninsula_field_days and made so many connections with farmers from around SA doing fantastic work on farm. We also chatted with ag industry representatives, like Chairman Adrian McCabe from Grain Producers SA (pictured) who is doing great work around climate resilience for SA growers. #ypfielddays ...

And that's a wrap!
We had an extraordinary day today at our first 'Tasmanian Climate Smart Agriculture' conference.

Thank you to all our amazing volunteers, speakers, our stall holders, our partners Tasmanian Farmers & Graziers Association and every single one of you that came along.

This photo was in response to this question being asked:
Who here today would like to see Tasmania become the first state in Australia to achieve net zero emissions in Agriculture?

When we work together we are powerful and can achieve incrediable things. Need we say more!?

“Farmers are very connected to place. They see it every day, have detailed knowledge about it and care a lot about the land.
I think we can do much better by including farmers in scientific decision making."

"Farmers across Australia are on the frontline of climate change, grappling with fires, floods, droughts in fast growing succession. The cost of these events continues to mount.

"The federal government has an incredible opportunity to harness the future that strong climate policy presents; to slow climate change and build the economic, social and physical resilience of our communities.

"We must restore our landscapes and renew our regions, reducing emissions and revitalising our communities around investment in new clean energy technologies to replace fossil fuels.

"If we do this we will see economic benefits flow to communities across the country, urban and rural, mining and farming alike."

- Charlie Prell, Crookwell farmer and Farmers for Climate Action chair, in The Canberra Times this morning.

This week, we asked farmers to take a photo of themselves with a written message for our federal politicians ahead of the climate conference in Glasgow. The response we received was overwhelming.

Now it's time for our politicians to listen.

I support Farmers for Climate Action.

What a great post! Thank you for giving us a sense of hope

What intelligent people, shame our politicians weren’t as intelligent.

A bit late, sorry!

With only two weeks until the Glasgow climate conference, Australia still doesn’t have a climate plan.

That's why we're asking farmers to take a selfie saying why they support climate action and then post it to social media with the hashtag #farmingforever. Now is the time to send a strong message to our federal leaders that farmers want meaningful action on climate change!

8 years of lost opportunity and now a rushed job. Shallow Government

Thank you for providing for us 😊. We need to bring the government back in line with all Australians.

Please do this and send to National Mps.

Thank You ❤️

Stop voting Nats. Simples.

GOOD LUCK WITH GETTING AN OUNCE OF SENSE OUT OF Barnaby Joyce Incorporated now running Australia.

Bravo 👏

Wonderful photos and a very important message 💚

Calling all farmers! With the climate conference in Glasgow on the horizon, now is the time to send a strong message to our federal leaders that farmers support meaningful action on climate change.

Here's what you can do:

1. Take a selfie (on your farm if you can) with a sign stating why you support climate action as a farmer.
Include the hashtag #farmingforever
2. Post to your socials (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) tagging PM Morrison and Nationals leader Barnaby Joyce
3. Ask your family and friends to do the same.

Here's a selfie from Peter Holding, a third-generation farmer from Harden in NSW.

I'm hoping there are enough of you wonderful, visionary farmers to turn the tides in regional areas in the forthcoming election! All strength to you. 👍 🙏

Yes - farmers and people in regions have a lot to gain from climate action and so much to loose...

This is the most positive site in Australia atm - all about moving forward best thing for Regional Australia in a very long time

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if all our parliamentarians voted for Zali’s bill.

How dare the Nats hold the nation to ransom in the name of country people. 😡

Offer to give up your diesel rebates then

Please farmers we need you !

Got this from Cam today Dear Phil, With only two weeks until the Glasgow climate conference, Australia still doesn’t have a climate plan. Sign the petition calling for stronger climate targets! That’s because the Federal National Party, the junior Coalition member, is refusing to get on board with serious climate action. A small number of coal-loving holdout MPs are keeping Australia from adopting stronger climate policies. This is despite the NSW and Victorian National Parties championing strong climate action in their states. Unchecked climate change will have an enormous impact on farming families. Jody Brown, a grazier from Longreach in Central Western QLD, is worried that without stronger climate targets, her daughter won’t be able to continue farming on their property. She has launched a petition calling for stronger climate targets. Will you sign Jody’s petition? The truth is, a 2050 climate target is too late. It’s what we do in the next decade that is going to count. We need our elected representatives in the country to understand this. Too many of them still view climate action as a penalty, when we know acting on climate will create thousands of jobs and create billions of dollars of investment in regional Australia. Sign the petition With the Glasgow summit in a matter of weeks, now is the time to act. We need to have our voices heard in Canberra. Thanks for your support Cam Klose Strategy Director Ps, now is the time to protect farming families like Jody by adopting strong climate targets for this decade. Stand with Jody and sign the petition today! Farmers for Climate Action farmersforclimateaction.org.au My question is similar to that of Senator Matthew Canavan of the National Party, it’s all well and good to have these idealistic views that somehow what is done here in Australia will have an effect globally but come on farmers are realistic people who know a spade from a shovel, that is as long as their address is not Collins Street Melbourne or Pitt Street Sydney. So realistically speaking for the carbon credits required to put this party on a plane, send them halfway round the planet for a couple of weeks boozing and smooshing is it really worth all the carry on. My concern is actually who is not going and number one amongst those is the CCP who still have 9 years to run on a get out of jail free card before they will be accountable for anything. Now add to that the economic cost of the last two years and your climate alarmism is starting to come up a bit short. I am most definitely not a denier and supportive of a great deal that this group offers, the one caveat I have is economic viability. The planet is not in that bad shape that Mother Nature who is far smarter and stronger than mankind and us within an intelligent economically sustainable timeframe can’t undo what damage has been done and anyone who says otherwise I defy them to prove to me that they are not economically advantaged by their claimed course of action. The Green movement has been corrupted by the global elite who are using it to fill their pockets, prove me wrong if you can happy to debate

Sasha Mainsbridge

I have to say the Nationals appear not to have any understanding of the problem. One today said that you cant rely on modeling of the future, another implied the IPCC report was not reliable. In people who are now trying to control the future of Australia and which could reflect on the global outcome of COP26, this is incompetence of the highest order.

It’s a shame this group has such little understanding of climate science. Methane is not the problem it’s made out to be, it only needs to reduce 0.3% per year to avoid further warming. Farmers blaming farmers for climate change….very disappointing

I want carbon credits for my contribution to achieving Kyoto targets.
