Farmers at Caroona on the Liverpool Plains near Quirindi, New South Wales, have been defending their properties from invasion by BHP-Billiton’s coal exploration drillers.

Agribusiness is also a big contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. But contrary to the myths spread by big-business apologists, the evidence shows that family farms are many times more productive and better cared for than large holdings.
