Think this heatwave is bad? Scorching summer of 1936 saw North Dakota bake in 121F heat that was hotter than DEATH VALLEY, killed 5,000 and made it possible to cook steak on the street

Most of the globe is currently experiencing a heatwave, with Britain recording its highest temperature at 104 degrees on Tuesday 

However, the summer of 1936 was more deadly and hotter, more than killing 5,000 people

Temperatures hit as high as 121 degrees in North Dakota and was hotter than Death Valley and could cook a rare steak on the street

People in Nebraska and New York slept outside and Americans only had fans and ice to cool them off 

The hottest temperature ever recorded in the United States was 134f in Death Valley in July 1913

  1. For temperature it’s an excellent scale for human beings. 0 degrees is very cold, 100 degrees is very hot. Lots of nuance in between those temps. Why base a temp scale for humans on water?
