In this video, which you can also find on Facebook and Twitter and Instagram, dairy farmer Rob Miller says that his farm at Milton has been burnt four times since Christmas. Rob is calling on everyday Australians – from the city to the bush – to demonstrate their support for climate action and to get behind rural Australians, who are on the frontlines of climate change.

We believe this is a really good visible, positive, clear, and non-partisan action which all Australians can do to demonstrate to politicians from all political parties that there is a groundswell of ordinary people across the country from all political persuasions and walks of life who want action and leadership on climate change.

Why yellow? It’s the colour of bumper crops, hope for the future, #canariesinthecoalmine, of solar energy!

“Let’s paint something yellow, display something yellow, on our houses, on our cars, on ourselves to show Australians want climate action. Paint your letter box yellow or put a yellow ribbon on your fence, put a yellow sticker on your car – be creative. Share what you’ve done, ask your friends and neighbours to do it too and together let’s show our true colours on climate action.”

Ideas for everyone:
  1. Order a #showourcolours themed Farmers for Climate Action farmgate sign (and display it when it arrives)
  2. Update your profile pic on Facebook and Twitter with this Twibbon that will frame your photo yellow
  3. Share messages of support, yellow images on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter using the hashtag #showourcolours (you can also use #canariesinthecoalmine)
The next level:
  1. Paint something yellow/ display something yellow to show you care about climate change: A wall, a shed, on fire-damaged property, your letterbox, a sign in your front yard – be bold and creative! Most importantly, make sure your sign can be easily seen.
  2. Write “We want climate action” to make your yellow sign really stand out.
  3. Film it and photograph it – have someone video you next to your sign while you also say why you’re doing it, or make it a selfie video. Take some photos too.
  4. Share it – get it out on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Also, email us at [email protected] and we can put it up on our social media. Ask your friends to make their own sign but also to share your post far and wide. Make sure you use #showourcolours (you can also use #canariesinthecoalmine)

I am joining in solidarity with the Farmers for Climate Action: #showourcolours campaign - and hoping many of you will too!

I’ve just ordered my #showourcolours themed Farmers for Climate Action farmgate sign via the link in the bio. "We believe this is a really good visible, positive, clear, and non-partisan action which all Australians can do to demonstrate to politicians from all political parties that there is a groundswell of ordinary people across the country from all political persuasions and walks of life who want action and leadership on climate change.

Calling all young farmers to #ShowOurColours
and go yellow for #ClimateAction !

Our #youngfarmers are on the coal face of a changing climate. In the last months alone we have endured devastating losses across the country. Our members have lost farms, houses, livestock and livelihoods in fires and suffered through ongoing drought.

The cracks in the natural systems that sustain us all are deepening - just as those in the dry river beds and bare earth.

But we believe in a bright and prosperous future for agriculture, young farmers are embracing effective and regenerative land management tools to increase soil carbon, water storage, biodiversity preservation and improve economic success.
This is not our job alone -- we need radical action and leadership NOW from politicians and every Australian to support this groundswell and demand for non-partisan and future focussed action on climate policy and widespread systems change. "As a young farmer, my future in the agricultural sector depends on us addressing climate change today.
"Climate change is impacting people, livelihoods and the places we love and call home today. We can solve this problem by putting in place sensible and responsible strategies today."
- anikamolesworth, Broken Hill farmer. farmersforclimateaction and ambassador for youngfarmersconnect

Standby for ‘non-making-related’ post or scroll on by... recently there was a ridiculous opinion piece by a certain prominent NSW politician suggesting that rural people had no free thought regarding sustainable energy, management of our National Parks or climate change and that we were being remotely manipulated by guilt-ridden city folk - basically an insult to us all. In response to that and also in support of the bi-partisan #farmersforclimateaction I printed these vinyl static clings. PM me if you'd like one and you too can find a good place to stick it. #farmersforclimateaction #showourcolours ...

#ShowOurColours for climate. Rob Miller, fifth generation dairy farmer from NSW south coast, knows first hand the impacts of climate change. He's showing his support for climate action and wants you to stand with him to #showourcolours for climate. "Since Christmas I've had four bushfires rip through my dairy farm. It's been really devastating. "But I've got an idea for how ordinary Australians can show we want Australia to step up and lead on climate action. "Let's paint something yellow, display something yellow, on our houses, on our cars, on ourselves to show Australians want climate action. Paint your letter box yellow or put a yellow ribbon on your fence, put a yellow sticker on your car – be creative. "Share what you've done, ask your friends and neighbours to do it too and together let's show our true colours on climate action." We think it's a great idea! How will you show your colours to support Rob and other rural Australians on the frontlines of climate change? #showourcolours ...
