And, from Australia....

Again, no link between droughts and global warming...
OST farmers believe climate change is a natural phenomenon and not man-made, senior delegates to a farmers' conference said today.

NSW Farmers Association (NFA) executive councillors Howard Crozier and Ian McClintock's comments were applauded by the 60 fellow NFA councillors at their bi-annual meeting in Sydney today.

The pair say they do not accept the widely endorsed Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) finding that man-made carbon emissions are the main cause of global warming.

They rely on what they say is an emerging and eminent alternative school of climate change research which says global warming is almost entirely a natural occurrence.

Mr Crozier, a broadacre farmer near Canberra, is representing the views of farmers in his area at the two-day meeting which began today.

"The majority of farmers believe that climate change is really a natural cycle process," he told AAP.

"There is no possible link between this drought and man-made climate change."

His climate change ally, crop and sheep farmer Mr McClintock, represents farmers in the Cootamundra area.

"Farmers by and large are far more sceptical about the claims being made that climate change is almost 100 per cent man-induced, simply because we work the land and we know what goes on," he told AAP.
