In case you missed it, over the weekend Nationals leader Michael McCormack suggested that agriculture could be excluded from our 2050 net zero emissions target, declaring that he is “not worried about what might happen in 30 years’ time”.
It seems Mr McCormack’s missed all of the 2030 emissions targets that the various agricultural sectors have been making AND the National Farmers’ Federation’s 2050 economy-wide target.
Australian agriculture - and the economy more broadly - stands to benefit from the transition to a low carbon economy. And that we can’t afford the price of inaction.
Will you join us in taking action today?
Here's what you can do:
1. Take a selfie (on your farm if you can) with a written message for the Prime Minister and Mr McCormack stating your support for a strong emissions target that includes agriculture.
2. Include the hashtag #NetZeroFarming
3. Post to your socials (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) tagging PM Morrison, Nationals Leader McCormack and Farmers for Climate Action.
4. Ask your family and friends to do the same
