About this book

Can we humans simply ignore the fires, the floods, and the increase in deaths brought about by climate change? In Against the Grain, Australian farmers – who bear the brunt of climate change, yet accept the science – share their experiences with the unpredictable weather events, the reduction in rainfall, and the shift to hotter months which are a challenge to farming cycles. Far from contributing to the problem with their farming practices, these farmers demonstrate how to reduce their greenhouse gases – to zero or below in some cases – while remaining profitable. They are all committed to pass on their farm in a better condition than when they first purchased or inherited it. With crops or livestock, big or small, they have worked cooperatively, mostly through land management, to plant thousands of trees, which has led to the daily presence of over 100 bird species. The farmers' inspiring and informative stories will open up a new world to most urban dwellers. A summary of climate change impacts – and an account of the numerous economic, political, and media barriers toward change – combine to provide a context for their work.
