Records of all kinds are being smashed each year since 2000, yet Climate deniers insist the weather and global conditions a "normal" Why? Small increments have large consequences and deniers bank on the fact the increments are so small that they couldn't be connected to any record-breaking events. (ODT)

ABC'S 'EXCELLENT REPORTING': 20 UNTRUTHS IN DEFENCE OF BRUCE PASCOE
Whenever Bolt's been caught out, and his back's to the wall, he becomes a creature of habit. He gets flustered and goes into a frenzy of activity throwing anything and everything at the wall. All in the hope that something of his rant will stick. Enough to convince the reading public he's right and his accusers wrong. He did the same with Adam Goodes and failed miserably in the eyes of the people showing himself up to what he is, a professional drongo.
Morton certainly wasn't in any way as rabid as Bolt when he raised the questions of Bolt's errors. Along with the fundamental question that went and still remains unanswered has Andrew Bolt read Bruce Pascoe's book? Why are there so many respected academics praising and not criticising it in the way Bolt is? It's as if his life depends on it. All this is like a tantrum being thrown by a child for distraction but by a guilty man.
Bolt says he's up close and personal with aboriginal "groups" many of them yet he really never identifies the many groups of which he's a confidant. He drags Jacinta Price out every now and then as the leading spokeswomen for the First Nation tribes which she patently isn't. Why would Bolt pretend she is and Marcia Langton not? The man id a devious mental midget.
Bolt's primary attack on Pascoe has been playing the man that difficulty in finding records of his aboriginality is the primary reason Pascoe shouldn't be believed
Deceit: Pascoe last week claimed he had "birth certificates" to prove his Aboriginality. So why were his kin last week going "to libraries around the country to find the name of their Aboriginal ancestor"?
Just how foolish is Rick Morton, and the journalists hailing him for his error-riddled defence of an error-raddled Pascoe?
Has there been any evidence found by anyone else other than Pascoe to support these claims? The answer it appears is yes then why Bolt has ignored it and focussed solely on one man? Bolt seems that the destruction of Pascoe puts to bed the findings of Aquaculture and farming practices by others. His imagination that hunting and gathering were what sustained Aboriginals for 60,000 years is what is far fetched. People that had developed sophisticated weaponry art and other items were only wanderers is more unbelievable than Bolt's account.
"Heather Builth is a consultant archaeologist whose work in the 1990s recognised the ingenuity of the Budj Bim eel traps that were used in the Lake Condah district of western Victoria.
The stones and foundations that remain today have been dated to more than 6000 years old, and are just a fraction of an enormous system that weaved its way from the ocean to inland areas of the district.
Similar fish trap structures can be found on the Barwon Darling River in western New South Wales.
