U.S. likely claims hottest place on Earth

Death Valley, California, climbed to 124 degrees Tuesday, making it not only the hottest spot in the U.S. but also probably one of the hottest places in the world — if not the hottest.

Wednesday was forecast to get only hotter, with Death Valley predicted to soar to a blistering 128 degrees.

With temperatures rising to 10 to 30 degrees above average, dozens of records were demolished Tuesday across Wyoming, Utah, South Dakota, Nevada, Arizona and Southern California. Casper, Wyoming, broke its previous record high of 93 by a full 9 degrees. Many other Western cities had similar, even more extreme events: Billings, Montana, shattered its daily record by 10 degrees (new record: 108), and Chula Vista, California, smashed its record by a whopping 13 whole degrees (new record: 89).

All-time record temperatures were tied Tuesday in Billings at 108 degrees, Salt Lake City at 107 and Cheyenne, Wyoming, at 94. Records for the hottest temperatures for the month of June were set in other parts of Utah, where temperatures soared above 105.

On Wednesday, the widespread extreme heat continued to engulf nearly 40 million people who were under heat advisories, watches and warnings.

With the heat wave not expected to diminish until next week, more than 200 warm records could fall, including afternoon record highs and overnight lows that fail to cool down.


This was named Death Valley before the scammers got ahold of climate science for a reason, so there is no shocking news here.

The World's Tallest Thermometer located in Baker, California


Baker, the Gateway to Death Valley.


People in Southern California think of Baker as the Gateway go to Las Vegas, where the vast majority of the people passing by are headed.

A CNN report stated that if the western states drought continues for another year it will have a major impact on food prices throughout the country, and scientists are saying climate change is playing a major role in it.

Bottom line: American wallets are going to pay a price for what is now happening should it continue. Some obsessed poster can nit pick whether or not it is caused by climate change but that is merely his science distrusting hangup.
