Saudi Arabia has lost its claim to the world’s warmest temperature on record. Instead the title returns to Death Valley, Calif.
an international team of meteorologists recently finished an in-depth investigation of what had been the world-record temperature extreme of 58 degrees Celsius (136.4 F), recorded on Sept. 13, 1922, in El Azizia, Libya. The group found that there were enough questions surrounding the measurement and how it was made that it was probably inaccurate, overturning the record 90 years to the day it was recorded.
So now we go back to 1912 with the record of 134. Too many systematic errors.
