134 degrees

Death Valley famously holds the record for the hottest temperature ever recorded on Earth, which is 134 degrees. This record was set on July 10, 1913.2 days ago

Tell me, was there more, or much less, co2 in the atmosphere 207 years ago?

Please, find a news source that believes more in journalism than ideology!

Reuters is an excellent news source.

DARN! I hate it when I do dumb stuff like that!

My wife, however, loves it!

Reuters is an excellent news source.

Yet, you continually use that trash s.b.s. and a.b.c.!

And their source is Reuters or Associated Press.  Some stories come direct from foreign correspondents living in the cities.

The source of the article is cited at the bottom, or a link to a bio on the reporter.

Here's the quote from reuters;

The hottest air temperature recorded anywhere on the planet in at least a century, and possibly ever, 

It took me all of 30 seconds to find that the record was not 130 degrees but 134 degrees in 1913. You're saying we shouldn't expect a good journalist to be able to do the same? "and possibly ever"?

come.... on.... man.....

Bob, it's 2020. The hottest day before that was 107 years ago.

Last I checked, that's "at least a century".

"Possibly ever" is perfectly reasonable, as temperature gauges were not as precise 107 years ago - though it is definitely wrong, as the earth was once nothing but molten rock in a coalescing solar system.

If everyone that does sloppy, or dishonest, work has people like you making excuses for them can we reasonably expect those results to change?

For decades women in hollywood seemed to suffer men taking advantage of them sexually. Was that because they spoke out, immediately and loudly, about it when it happened, or, because they made excuses for it?
