And I thought getting a nail in a tire was serious!

How hot is a hot middle east summer?

Geez that's nice scenery! And the road seems to fit right in like it's meant to be part of it!

Why does the World Meteorological Organization, the US National Weather Service, and all the news organizations & weather services all insist that Death Valley held the hottest place on earth record forever...never seeming to notice the ungodly hot temperatures I've read about in other countries (Saudi Arabia, Libya, etc.)?

Here's an article from Accuweather.com https://www.accuweather.com/en/weath...isputed/979835 that never mentions hot weather overseas, as displayed by many of EODguy's photos.

Wow, this sure took a U turn.

All the link says to me is there is no worldwide standard for measuring temperature and all reported temperatures are suspect. And, some of those registering temperatures are not credible as they lack the expertise to do so. The 1913 comparison was over 100 years ago. Things has changed a bit. Personally, I can't see why anyplace wants to claim their country is the hottest place on earth. Not good for tourism.

While other places may be hotter than Death Valley, I think the point is that these hotter temperatures are one of the indications of Global warming. I have changed over to all electric yard tools as gas versions are significant contributors to emissions. An electric mower was delivered about an hour ago, I'm scrapping the gas mower.
