Aussie PM wants bushfire inquiry

MELBOURNE — after weeks of criticism over the handling of the bushfires scorching australia, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said on Sunday he will propose a national review into the response to the disaster, as the fires claimed another firefighter’s life.

The australian bush has been burning for nearly three months and the fires have killed 28 people, claimed 2,000 homes and consumed millions of acres of land and wildlife. The crisis is becoming increasingly political as the country looks at the causes and the government’s response.

“There is obviously a need for a national review of the response,” Morrison said in an interview with ABC television.

asked whether it should be a royal Commission, a powerful judicial inquiry, Morrison said, “I think that is what would be necessary and I will be taking a proposal through the cabinet to that end, but it must be done with consultations with the states and territories.”

Morrison said that the inquiry would examine the response to the crisis, including the deployment of emergency services to battle the fires at a state and local level, the role of the federal government, and the impact of climate change.

Australia’s koala population has taken such an extraordinary hit from the wildfires sweeping the country that the marsupial could be classified as endangered in some areas. I read NSW has lost thirty per cent of it's koala population.

We're getting hammered by thunderstorms at the moment... up to 50 mm in 30 minutes, 110 kph wind gusts, and flash flooding...

I expect the power to cut out soon. Generator and agm's are primed and ready...

Helps and hurts... mushy ground makes it harder to gain access sometimes...

I learned that Koala Bears get most of their water from gum leaves.

"It can be dangerous to give koalas water poured into their mouth as they are not usually used to drinking, and a volume such as 10-20 [ml] can be 'aspirated', which means the water goes into the lungs instead of the oesophagus," a RSPCA South Australia spokesperson told 7NEWS.com.au in an interview.

"An animal can die from aspirating fluid."

Experts say the best way to help a dehydrated koala is to offer them water in a bowl or your hands, so they can gently lap up water. You can also use a small syringe to evenly and slowly put water into the koala's mouth.

If they are dying of dehydration anyway, what does it matter.

They just need to drink slow. Like 10mins to finish half a glass of water.

Leave water out for them in a plastic dish or anything that can hold water.
