The Farmers for Climate Action YouTube channel is filled with recordings of events, interviews with farmers and campaigns. Watch some of those videos here.

It’s crunch time to ramp up the pressure on the federal National party. In the next fortnight, they need to decide whether they’re going to make a deal with the Liberals to strengthen Australia’s climate targets. 

With just 27 days until the UN climate talks in Glasgow and a National Party room meeting happening on 17th October, we’ve made this TV ad featuring FCA members to hit the airwaves next week. 

For weeks the media has been reporting that the Prime Minister is ready to commit to a net zero emissions by 2050 target, and potentially stronger 2030 targets. A handful of federal Nationals are holding him back. 

We know that climate policy means good jobs, investment and opportunities for the regions. Just last week we saw the NSW state Nationals back an ambitious climate plan.

This is our chance to move the needle with the federal Nationals. We know there’s vigorous debate inside their party room over whether they’ll reach a deal with the Liberals for Australia to take stronger emissions reductions targets to Glasgow.

We’ve been farming out here a long time. So when things change around here, we notice.
We’re all seeing the changing weather. We’re already dealing with the risks.
Other countries are setting bold targets to tackle climate change.
They are creating entire new industries.
If we don’t act now, we’ll miss a huge opportunity for regional Australia. Industries for us. Jobs for our kids. Prosperity for the regions.
We can’t afford to be left behind.
Standing up for rural Australia means standing up for action on climate change.

How can Hepburn Shire farmers reach zero-net emissions on farm?
Farmers for Climate Action worked with Hepburn Shire to support the launch of their new publication, a comprehensive guide for the Shire to reach zero-net emissions in the agriculture sector. At this webinar, attendees heard from local farmer Paul Righetti and Z-Net Roundtable members Tammi Jonas and Dom Murphy.

In the Hepburn Shire, agricultural emissions are a critical piece of the zero-net puzzle, representing 41% of the shires total emissions. Over the past few months the Hepburn Z-NET Roundtable has been working with farmers and experts to produce a guide to draw these emissions down.

Cutting emissions from agriculture is often seen as challenging in comparison to other sectors but the Z-NET Roundtable says this doesn’t have to be the case. Their new strategy makes it clear that there is a large opportunity for farms to reduce their emissions and build carbon sinks with some significant but simple changes.

The guide offers detailed information on reducing emissions from fossil fuels, livestock, land use, soil carbon and agricultural inputs. There is also supporting information about the actions already
underway in the shire and how farmers can be involved.

For more information, you can access the guide “How Hepburn Shire Farms can Reach Z-NET” on the Hepburn Z-NET website https://z-net.org.au/hepburn/

This project is made possible thanks to the support of Creswick and District Community Bank, Hepburn Wind, Sustainability Victoria, Renew and Hepburn Shire Council.

Green hydrogen is tipped to play a major role in Australia’s shift to net zero emissions, but what exactly will that look like? What is stopping hydrogen from being a current major fuel source? How can hydrogen be used on farms?

In this webinar of our Road to Net Zero series, we took a closer look at the role of hydrogen in the future of net zero emissions agriculture.

We heard from Dr Daniel Roberts, leader of CSIRO’s Hydrogen Energy Systems Future Science Platform.

The Road to Net Zero webinar series explores the reasons for reducing emissions, the different solutions available and industry progress towards carbon neutrality. To date, we have looked into livestock emissions, trade impacts and a four-part series on soils. 

Dr Daniel Roberts
Daniel leads CSIRO’s Hydrogen Energy Systems Future Science Platform. The Hydrogen FSP plays an important role in CSIRO’s broad hydrogen RD&D program, by providing a strong scientific and technical foundation to CSIRO’s work in enabling a renewable energy export industry based on hydrogen. By creating new capabilities and technologies across the hydrogen value chain, this work will enable significant decarbonisation of power and transport sectors.

Before taking on the FSP role, Daniel led the High Efficiency Thermal and Electrochemical Technologies research group within CSIRO Energy. He continues to play a senior role in CSIRO’s research activities in the area of gasification for hydrogen production, as well as thermochemical pathways for boienergy production from biomass and waste.

Daniel has more than 20 years’ experience in the study of the fundamentals of gasification and combustion and their application to industrial scale systems. He has a background in environmental chemistry (Macquarie University) and chemical engineering (the University of Newcastle).
