    Australia has had a lot to deal with lately, but this is the last straw ...



    Fire then Flood ...



    Now Cyclones (Hurricanes) formed over the week-end east of Darwin ...




    Australians can handle that.

    FIRE, FLOOD ... but PESTILENCE ??


    Rick Astley and AH HA are touring down under

    FFS ... what did they do to deserve this?

    What's this, more frequent extremes of weather?

    It's almost like the climate is changing or something.

    According to the ABC weather forecaster this morning, this is seasonal for the area?

    It rivals the extinction events in North and South America not to mention many others in smaller islands in the pacific and elsewhere.

    Collapse by Jared Diamond is a great book describing these events.

    The latest research appears to argue against that theory:

    Aboriginal Australians co-existed with the megafauna for at least 17,000 years
