Ok, I am really glad $2billion has been allocated to bushfire recovery.

Good. Yes. Good.

And now I can use this sum of money to help show you what the funding looks like behind the scenes.

I encourage you to read it for yourself.…
Just to compare.
$2billion to respond to one of the first years of catastrophic bushfires.

Very bottom of this page says.
$3.5billion over 15 years from 2018-19 for a climate solutions package.
A lot of these sums of money are very low compared to other areas of government spending and are for really long time spans, longer than one election cycle so to me it screams empty promise.

So seems like peanuts and you may never even see these peanuts.
So back to the original question.
If sending in the military and throwing $2billion at it isn't a knee-jerk response (btw I'm very glad this happened) then what would Morrison call a knee-jerk response? Because that seems to be all he is giving us...
other than unwelcome handshakes and strange adds of him patting himself on the back.

Would he agree his actions seem very knee-jerky (lol) or does he think other choices (ones that involve the climate as a whole and not just these bushfires) are a knee jerk response?
This bloke thinks saying no more new coal mines or oil rigs was a knee jerk response, doesn't he.

Final point.

ONLY $3.5 Billion
'climate solutions package'

$2 Billion for 1 round of bushfires

let that sink in.
Oh and how could I forget this.
And great timing and interview by the ABC

I've looked at budgets of the past and can see the end of the government taking climate change seriously.
And the @WDYMvideos breakdown of some of these issues.

part one - just footage, photos and commentary from Australian media outlets.

part two - my commentary on segments of part 1.
