    This is what you could not tell us about your trip awhile back? Totally amazing that Chris could debunk this. How does Chris feel about this?

    I just looked at the whole (amazing) film. Before Chris made the analogy for himself, I said to Jeri “This is like a geographer finding out that Mt. Everest is not the highest!”. This cannot be overstated.

    I am so proud to have contributed a couple of illustrations to his definitive book “Extreme Weather” (which is perennially by my bedside) and now must get Chris to personally cross out the former El Aziziya record and annotate my copy.

    This now puts the record back in Death Valley (134°F 10/7/1913) “Yea our team!”, but a haunting possibility addressed in the movie is that temps are climbing worlwide and new records may soon be set….
