So will there be an independent panel handling the contracts for the rebuilding, or will it be the usual ''No need for tenders, mates only in the trough and quote what you like'' process?

I don't think they will be adopting the "Labor Party's Pink Batts Roll Out Death Plan" ...

The ALP/Greens have killed enough people in the bushfires through their ignorance and criminal negligence already thanks.

Watch this space.  We're going to do $50 billion cold here unless we save $30 billion and thus only lose $20 billion by walking away from a totally cr@p contract.  Thanks Scomo, it puts the few million you're committing to wildfire relief into true perspective.

They might have already been here today had Morrison not deliberately and consciously refused to listen to the fourteen or so retired fire chiefs who pleaded their case for the dire need for a further number of large water bombers almost 12 months ago:

What a shambles this Government truly is.

And this

Government buried climate risk action plan

A federal government plan to prepare for the dire effects of climate change-related natural disasters was left to gather dust in the Department of Home Affairs for 1½ years before catastrophic bushfires hit last month.

The National Disaster Risk Reduction Framework warned the changing climate was exposing the country to natural disasters on ‘‘unimagined scales, in unprecedented combinations and in unexpected locations’’.

More than one way...

Government buried climate risk action plan

 

A federal government plan to prepare for the dire effects of climate change-related natural disasters was left to gather dust in the Department of Home Affairs for 1½ years before catastrophic bushfires hit last month.

The National Disaster Risk Reduction Framework warned the changing climate was exposing the country to natural disasters on ‘‘unimagined scales, in unprecedented combinations and in unexpected locations’’.

It warned more and more people and assets would be exposed to these disasters, with essential services – including power, water, telecommunications and financial services – particularly vulnerable.

‘‘As a result, the cost of disasters is increasing for all sectors of society – governments, industry, business, not-for-profits, communities and individuals,’’ the report warned.

But in the 1½ years since its publication in mid-2018 – weeks before the leadership coup in which then prime minister Malcolm Turnbull was replaced by Scott Morrison – the federal government has taken little tangible action, and has failed to publish the national implementation plan promised for 2019.

The recent catastrophic bushfires have led to 26 deaths, destroyed thousands of homes and burnt through about 10 million hectares of bush. Bushfire-related insurance losses for the season stand at almost $1 billion. More than a billion animals may have been killed, wounded or displaced by the fires.

The government framework laid out a blueprint for a nationally co-ordinated pre-emptive response to the known risks, including increased investment in resilience projects, more research on the nature of risks, a clear accountability regime and a national implementation plan to be published last year.

We’ve got to get out of the habit of living in ignorance of what’s possible.

— Mark Crossweller, former Home Affairs public servant

Mark Crosweller, the former Home Affairs public servant who led the work on the National Disaster Risk Reduction Framework, told AFR Weekend the changing climate required a radical rethink in the way Australians interact with the land, and demanded "compassionate politics".

‘‘Public policy on climate change at all levels of government has been confusing and difficult and there have been no clear policy signals,’’ he said.

‘‘We cannot rely on historical experience to anticipate future impacts.’’

Mr Crosweller said it had been impossible to get proposals adopted ‘‘so that significant work can be done in preparation and mitigation’’.

‘‘There’s still a big gap within the context of existing leadership capability. We need a step-change in addressing climate change in the future.

"We’ve got to get out of the habit of living in ignorance of what’s possible."

The government ignored its own blueprint for a nationally co-ordinated pre-emptive response to known risks. Wolter Peeters

He said it was a complex issue that ‘‘needs a very skilful narrative and a very compassionate politics’’.

"We've got to sit down with people and discuss what are we prepared to lose and what are we not prepared to lose. Because the reality is we will lose things, and nobody wants to talk about that. But that is the reality of living in the Australian landscape."

Resources and forums

Asked what steps had been taken to implement the framework, a spokesman for the Department of Home Affairs said it had "published resources" and "held forums", but gave no examples of concrete initiatives other than one "pilot project" in the freight sector.

The spokesman said the government was "working with states and territories, as well as industry and the community sector, on a national action plan that sets out specific actions to implement the framework".

He did not say when that plan would be published.

The spokesman also referred to government ‘‘programs and investments’’ that were in line with the framework. This could have referred to a 2019 federal budget measure that put aside $130.5 million over five years to fund disaster reduction initiatives.

Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton's office did not respond to calls.

Recovery commitment

The federal government has committed $2 billion to the bushfire recovery effort, while the NSW government has committed $1 billion.

According to the Australian Business Roundtable for Disaster Resilience and Safer Communities – a joint venture of IAG, Westpac, Optus, Munich Re and Australian Red Cross – government spending on disaster recovery dwarfs spending on resilience projects.

It found that between 2010 and 2013, federal and state governments spent about $2.7 billion a year on recovery, but just $100 million on resilience.

Optus chairman Paul O'Sullivan, one of the five board members of the roundtable, said it was time for a "step change" in the way nations prepared for natural disasters.

He said the onus was on communities and businesses as well as governments to force the change.

"Historically it's been very hard for people to see the benefits of disasters that have been avoided, whereas spending money to recover is a lot more tangible and visible," he said.

"So it’s an issue for the community, and for us as business leaders. There needs to be more forceful recognition from businesses, communities and governments of the benefit of resilience, even though it won’t be as politically appealing."

How Good is ScoMo!!!Heart

Although strangely, the media and Albo and the Greens don't seem very keen to give him credit for bringing all this rain FOUR MONTHS ahead of the BOM Predictions Guesses!Embarrassed

Ahhh well, they are obviously just sitting back, PRAYING FOR FLOODS ... so they can make gelati up about that to blame him and deflect from the ALP/Greens and the blood on their hands.

No point praying for the economic CATASTROPHE that never came ... new records everywhere ...

How Good is Joshie!!!Clap

Hey Doc, I see Pauline on the telly this morning She has started a campaign to stop the 2032 Olympic bid . She says we can't afford it. Hang on, that is 12 years away. Seems Pauline has no faith in SloMo and Fraudenberg's economic miracle arriving in time.

PS Howard's $34 billion tax cut boom for the wealthy must be due to arrive soon.Thumbs Up

How Good is ScoMo!Hug

Hey why did the Labor/Greens sack KKK (or has she been on holidays?) ... she was such a good operator - she couldn't win a rigged chook raffle!LOL

So now ALBO and BILL are attached at the hip ... btw, is it officially ALBILL or BILLBO? Tongue

ScoMo doesn't need to do anything, just let whoever is the puppet in front of this rudderless rabble stand up and speak!

No Franking Credits Pensioner Tax, now no Emissions Targets? WOW ... do they stand for ANYTHING???Embarrassed ... that Death Tax must be due for a run again in that case!!!DeadLOL

If you get the chance to watch the trainwreck interview he did on Sky it is GOLD!Thumbs Up ... he is seriously just a pathetic, divisive, arrogant, sycophantic, pale clone of the last bloke, isn't he! ... smart though ... he knows to keep his friends close and his enemies closer! ... Bullgelati Bill has had plenty of time to forgive himself for fcuking up the last election, and to hone that knife!Evil Smile


It's interesting isn't it ... the parallels with the Dems and their rabble with each one taking turns to lose their current pissing contest is so glaringly obvious ... and delicious!Wink.

I was wondering, innocent that I am, why Scomo hasn't ditched Bridget quick to get the stink off him. Turns out he was in on it, comparing notes with Bridget on the pork carve up.

He might have to declare "A Shire Emergency!!!" and pull all the SES assets from the unworthy Sydney ALP seats and redeploy them to Cronulla for a few weeks!
