#Strongwomen. "I write about the power of trying, because I want to be okay with failing. I write about generosity because I battle selfishness. I write about joy because I know sorrow. I write about faith because I almost lost mine, and I know what it is to be broken and in need of redemption. I write about gratitude because I am thankful – for all of it." Kristin Armstrong
Twitter can be a very nasty space and I readily admit I found this twitter feed between Cam Parker and Fiona Simson refreshing
There is so much frustration out there and like many I thought a Malcolm Turnbull led government would take the lead on real Climate Action. I am disappointed. Australian farmers en masse are disappointed
How do we get our messages across in a respectful way.
How do we make our point without more #asupol bashing.
Perhaps a little humour
Read Fiona Simson’s opinion piece “Drought framework must be flexible, fair and free of red tape” here
Can get the politicians to sit up and listen and converse and act
can work collaboratively and collectively together
Farmers for Climate Action – The Why
WHAT DO WE STAND FOR
Farmers for Climate Action is an inclusive movement driven by farmers, for farmers calling for immediate action on climate change and supporting on-farm adaptation and mitigation to ensure a positive future for generations of Australian farmers.
We are committed to working with farmers from all across Australia to communicate issues relating to climate change.
We are supporting farmers to be part of the solution to climate change through climate-smart farming practices. We recognize that many farmers are already leading the way.
We are actively advocating for more targeted research, development, extension and adoption to support farmers in successfully adapting to changing climatic conditions.
We are strongly advocating for immediate action on climate change at local, state and federal levels and working with our communities to ensure farmers have a strong voice on climate change.
We are calling on a rapid transformation of Australia’s energy system away from fossil fuels and towards renewable energy in a way that maximizes benefits to farmers and regional communities.
We recognise that climate solutions can provide huge benefits for regional Australia, helping revitalise our communities.
Yes indeed the forward thinking “we are all in this together” model for a bright and flourish agriculture sector in Australia
