Last night saw the same article which included a little bit about the author and who funds him.  Hmmm easy to see why he wrote the cash for comment piece.

Ahhhhhhhhhh. The truth behind the news.

One might think it was all about the money.

If one was cynical ;D

Coupled with the drought, have any of the bad fires killed any large areas of forest?

Cheers Glen

Yep,
The Clarence area has lost a lot of timber, natural as well as plantation, private lands.
There are pictures on FB, local groups, of the devastation.
The East coast has suffered greatly.

That is what I feared, after lose of life of course, that vast areas for animal refuge wont exist. Hopefully Im mistaken.
I watched the post Bird put up that showed the ferocity of the bushfires. All I can say is, to all the fire fighters out there, you are truly brave souls. We still have a while to go this summer. Stay safe, and thank you for your service.

The lost of wild life is huge, there are folk tring their best to help these animals, shouldn't call them that, we share our world with them.
Wonder what they think of us.
The RFS, other services have done an enormous service, we are in their debut.
Their effort is not lost, we have a couple of members of our 4wd club who have attended most of tbe fires in the Clarence.
Our area was the first to be impacted, back in August, then this stretched down the Eastern coast.
Many communities, a hell of alot of country has suffered.

One aspect that has only just come out,
The utter destruction of country, has now lead to an increase in wild dog attacks on not only stock(fences down) but wild life just tring to survive.


Not only NSW, But Vic  and SA.

Hey, tourism is a part, but all the other industies, they are hurting.

Hmmm

Filled out the forms this morning to become a RFS member.
I'll hand the paper work in on Tuesday evening at their Meeting.
Friday arvo they held an information evening for communitty members wanting to know more about how the operate, and information if you wanted to join.
About 25 odd communitty members attended, men & women, as well as k8ds in their late teens/early 20's.
The Lawrence unit is a small one(as is many in country areas), only about dozen members, if they can get half the number that showed interest, it would help them heaps.

Well done Jon.   I'm going to rejoin.  They closed our local Brigade expecting us all to join a neighbouring Brigade.  I think the only one that stayed in the RFS was the Brigade Captain.  Bit of politicking went on behind the scenes with it all.  The Brigade we were supposed to go to has to move still to an unknown location.
Cheers

Just saw this on facebook feed. 

Fire victims have received some comforting news today, with the NSW Government releasing an amendment to the legislation that prohibits caravans being used to house bushfire victims.

NSW residents who have been bushfire affected can now live in a caravan for up to TWO years, the previous law only allowing occupation for two days:
