Yesterday we launched our latest report from Ernst & Young, How can Australia’s agriculture sector capitalise on opportunities in a low emissions future?

Australian farmers are already leading the way on decarbonisation, but with more support, they can go even further.

Read the report and watch the launch via the link in our bio.

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.

Calling all farmers in Victoria! Sign our open letter thanking the leader of the Victorian National Party for coming out strongly in support of climate action, as well as urging the federal National Party to follow his lead and support climate solutions!

We know Peter Walsh MP is right to stand up for climate action. Farmers stand to benefit so much from the transition to a low carbon future, and need strong action on emissions to secure the future of their farms.

Mr Onley said he was disappointed the federal government was not taking the lead more on climate action, and believed it was “too scared” to upset big donors.

“As an industry, we need change, we need reliable power and we need certainty for the future,” he said.

Yay! Got a spot on Sky News - wow! That is significant! I notice it wasn’t on the 9.50am slot on Outsiders on Sunday with Rowan!

Well done Anika Molesworth for educating the public about Farmers for Climate Action💚💚

Both Professor Bob Carter and Professor Peter Ridd have shown the rest of Australia what courage is. Both have shown that in these days of Progressive Group Think that we must fight for the right to express an opinion. Both men spoke the truth and paid a terrible price for their actions, they are and were Great Australians. It does not matter how we dress it up, Climate Action means Carbon Neutral, cross referenced Geology Science proves time and time again that we will prosper with more atmospheric Co2, not less. Below I will plagiarize a very telling article that displays the huge Progressive Green Grip on our vital Institutions. The article indicated that this censorious culture was so great at the CSIRO that these three Scientists could only speak out on the facts that exposed this Anthropogenic Climate madness in their retirement. So, the next time adherents to this mentioned Man-Made Climate madness tell you that science is on their side, then you know only too well that they are not aware that so often in the areas that matter, only one side is ever given a voice. Cancel Culture is endemic today and one cannot build a successful society on such an occurrence. What a pity Noel Thompson who has contributed to this site, it seems has locked me out of his world. It is obvious that he was very willing on a personal note to verify my above statements. I take this opportunity to wish him well in prosecuting some of his views, especially if they resemble his replies to me. Cheers Noel. Quote "There is] an atmosphere of intimidation if one expresses dissenting views or evidence. It is as if one is doing one’s colleagues a great disservice in dissenting and perhaps derailing the gravy train. The global warming monopoly is seriously bad for science” - David Packham, former CSIRO principal research scientist, senior research fellow in a climate group at Monash University, and an officer in the Australian Bureau of Meteorology. “It is my strong belief that CSIRO has passed its use-by date. The organisation that bears the name of CSIRO has very little in common with the organisation that I joined in 1971, one that produced so much of value for Australia during its first seven decades. As an example, consider the Garnaut Report [on global warming], possibly the longest economic suicide note in Australia’s history. It is based on the dire predictions of CSIRO’s modelling programs.” - Dr. Art Raiche, former CSIRO Chief Research Scientist. “I have yet to see credible proof of carbon dioxide driving climate change, yet alone man-made CO2 driving it. The atmospheric hot-spot is missing and the ice core data refute this. When will we collectively awake from this deceptive delusion? I contend that those professional scientists and advisors that are knowingly complicit in climate science fraud and all that is derived from it, will continue to be exposed by the science itself.” - Dr. Guy LeBlanc Smith, retired CSIRO Principal Research Scientist. Unquote When will we wake up ????????????????????????????

Haven't we been acting on climate change on farm for decades? No till has improved water use efficiency in our case three fold. 40mm less in crop winter rain in the last 30 years compared to the 30 years prior and a three-fold increase in cereal crop yields in that time.

Farmers for Climate Action

Our latest report by Ernst & Young shows how good climate policy will support Australian farming families to diversify their incomes and increase productivity and profitability – while reducing emissions. It found that all we need to realise this opportunity is firm commitment from the federal government.

With over 6,000 farmers in our movement, we can shift the politics of climate change so farmers, their families and communities can benefit from strong climate policies. Make a tax deductible donation now: farmersforclimateaction.org.au/donate-back-farming-families/

“...firm commitment from the federal government.” Need to change the government then.
