The Bill Has Been Tabled

The CARBON CREDITS (CARBON FARMING INITIATIVE) BILL 2011 was today tabled in the House of Representatives by the Minister Greg Combet. The Government want the legislation passed in time for a 1 July, 2011 start. Congratulations to you, the 'true believers' who did not lose heart when the odds seemed stacked against us. We are now at the pointy end. There are still many obstacles to overcome. If everyone sees the broad context - the benefits to our families and communities if every farmer changes their practices - we will find ways to overcome obstacles. There are too many unusual things happening now to put global soil carbon sequestration off for further trials and research. We either act now or reap the whirlwind.
