As more and more towns are declaring climate emergencies its about time governments begin to push harder for changes in industry. NSW and QLD towns are nearing day zero with farms trucking in large quantities of water to supply crops and animals. Not only are vulnerable food bowls, which support the larger cities ,at risk of below average yields the increases in costs directly effect farmers and the community as the price of food rises. Are we doing enough to push new sustainable practices? I believe we have a long way to go to not only curbing emissions but reducing runoff and damage to the Barrier Reef. Its a complex topic with far reaching discussions and deserves a lot more then a short blog. Though, raising awareness goes some way to improving the publics knowledge and assists those to make good choices, buy local and buy fresh.
