'Incredible divide' in NSW govt over climate policy | Sky News AustraliaSky News host Chris Kenny says there is “an incredible divide” going on in the New South Wales government that could have “huge ramifications nationally”.\n\n“At the moment you have the Liberals and Nationals, the environment minister and the deputy premier no less, who sit in the very same cabinet, openly divided on climate policy,” Mr Kenny said.\n\nThe comments come after the Environment Minister Matt Kean earlier this year vowed his government is “absolutely committed to reaching zero net emissions by 2050”.\n\nBut Nationals Leader John Barilaro said he did not agree with Mr Kean’s policies because a target of zero net emissions by 2050 would be detrimental to regional and rural communities and spell the end to mining and resource jobs.\n\n“This cannot stand. Either the policy has to change, or the personnel has to change or the Coalition [federally] will be in strife”.\n\nImage: News Corp Australia\n Get Dr Kenny to she some lights on their financial mismanagement... I think the problem there is the understanding of 'NET'. Modern politicians. MayneReport And we all know how credible ChrisKenny is..

(I am told the govt got that money) it should not be a problem getting them new equipment. But we cannot believe any govt now,so full of lies and spin. How about an in-depth investigative journo article on the fires/money issue? deniseshrivell RFS is a State funded service owned by the people The State is responsible for maintaining and upgrading it - RFS should not have to ask! The donations are not getting to the people - separate to funding and not an excuse to withhold funding Celeste Barber raised $50 million plus for RFS whose trust deed states the money is to be directed '…to or for the brigades in order to enable or assist them to meet the costs of purchasing and maintaining fire-fighting equipment and facilities...'

Pop-up mall set for bushfire-ravaged NSW town of MogoUp to 10 businesses will be housed in a temporary shopping centre being erected in the NSW village of Mogo, a community still reeling from devastating New Year's Eve bushfires. Great news! Also after the Christchurch Earthquake they used containers to create a smart modern pop up shopping mall. Perhaps they can be considered also for other shopping centres? I see nothing for Victoria. Andrews too concerned about his F***ing tunnel.Mallacoota are in the Shit,big time.They lost all. Cool! Will definitely visit when Mogo is open for business again.
