Interview: 'What happens in 2050 will be dictated by what happens between now and 2030' - Charlie Prell, Farmers for Climate Acton chair

Interview: 'What happens in 2050 will be dictated by what happens between now and 2030' - Charlie Prell, Farmers for Climate Acton  chair

Charlie Prell (pictured) chairs Farmers for Climate Action and talks here with Climate Conversations about a recent media release from the group, "Farmers deserve certainty on net-zero target".

Charlie's sheep farm at Crookwell, about an hour north of Canberra on the New South Wales southern highlands, hosts a wind farm and being able to see one of the turbines from his kitchen window, Charlie has almost exhausted his adjectives in explaining how wonderful the wind turbines are.

He sees wind turbines, and renewable energy generally, as a major step forward in countering the climate crisis and encouraging others to embrace the idea of stepping away from fossil fuels he has said that what happens in 2050 will be dictated by what happens between now and 2030.

Acknowledging the challenges ahead, Charlie sees wonderful opportunities unfolding for farmers, and Australians broadly, through the embrace of such things as wind farms and other forms of renewable energy.
