Though the media lives for hyping up big weather phenomena, actual scientific research and data reveal the earth is, in fact, heating up at an alarming rate.

A Southland home owner is disgusted and upset after her rental property was “trashed”, leaving her with a repair bill of thousands of dollars. Rae Dorricott, 72, said she rented her Winton house to a Lisa Jones, as named on Tenancy Tribunal documents, and a year later the home had multiple holes in the walls, smashed doors, bad smell throughout the home, stained carpets, wrecked net curtains, a cracked window, two heat pumps and a spa bath no longer working, smashed oven door, damaged window sill and a garden covered in dog faeces.
