Insane: New York mayor to sue oil companies for bad weather

Sandy struck during high tide at the tip of Manhattan.

Sydney ‘hottest ever’ mistake generates worldwide fake news

The BOM announced it was the hottest ever day in Sydney today, then realized it had it wrong, but not before headlines spread across the country.
