Extreme weather, deniosaurs and myth debunkers

While extreme weather events have been making the news around the world, the deniosaurs are still spruiking their misinformation. Meanwhile, others are doing their bit to debunk the increasingly vocal cries of denialists, including Clive Hamilton, who has written a series of articles for ABC Unleashed about the methods and means of the anti-humanity crowd.

Although a single weather event on its own can't be put down to climate, the record rain, snow and storms we've been seeing lately is exactly what we'd expect with a warming earth.

Birdsville in outback Australia had it's annual quota of rain yesterday (yes, all in one day). This little town in the desert had nine inches of rain in less than 48 hours.

Europe is reeling from storms and floods.

Last month, parts of the USA and Europe has massive snow falls, while other parts were much too warm for this time of the year.

And it's only just beginning!
