      Except we aren't as racist here in LA as you people are in Phoenix... maybe it's the heat that makes you people so hateful.

      It's hot when you're not used to it. Or if you don't have AC which we don't where we're at.

      Neither of which is news. One sentence though.

    Wow, thanks for the minimalist post with no contextualizing information. Is 112 the highest temperature ever recording anywhere on Earth? In Los Angeles? Or just the highest temp for LA on Sept. 27 of any year?

      113 degrees is the highest temperature EVER recorded in downtown LA. It breaks the record set in June, 1990 of 112 degrees.

      Are we clear, now?

      That's got to be the high for that date. I remember it hitting 115 in late June back in the early '90's, but that was for the San Fernano Valley, if it's for downtown LA, which tends to be cooler from the ocean air, it could be the all time record. You are right. it's really lousy reporting.

      This article talks about Los Angeles temperatures.
      So the previous all-time high temp quoted is in ***drum-roll*** Los Angeles!

      And since it's "all-time" it means ***drum roll again*** EVER!

      The hottest temperature every recorded was on September 13, 1922, in El Azizia, Libya, at 136 degrees Fahrenheit. El Azizia is near the Sahara Desert.

      The 2nd hottest was recorded in Death Valley, California, in 1913, at 134 degrees Fahrenheit.

      The linked story says the 113 degrees was recorded in downtown Los Angeles. It was a record for there, that particular spot, not the entire planet. It routinely gets considerably hotter than that in places such as the Middle East.

    Cities breaking their calandar day temperature records are common and mostly covered by local media. Whereas when a temperatuire that has never been recorded is reached, nationwide media coverage ensues.

    Oh don't worry. These record high temperature years are in no way connected to the millions of tons of greenhouse gases us humans put into our thin, delicate atmosphere.

    Global warming is a hoax, right?

      Boy, how things have changed. When I was a kid, we just called a really hot day...a really hot day. Maybe even a hot spell! Now, it is rock solid evidence of global warming. Thank goodness Al Gore set all of us ignorant masses straight, otherwise we might have just thought that the earth's temperatures vary up and down in a cyclical manner, like they have from the beginning of time...

      I think it's fair that when people take the cold snap in New England recently as fact that global warming doesn't exist, that I can do the same with this heat wave.

      The melting ice caps and hottest year on record should be ignored. For sure, there is some weird Liberal agenda behind it, right? What do those intellectual elites have up their sleeves trying to scare us with all their scientific stuff.

    There are 12 MILLION people in the greater LA area, 99% of them are NOT what you claim they are, it is the countries 2nd largest economy, and one of the worlds most diverse and culturally advanced cities. I'm sorry your little po-dunk town in Arkansas isn't as globally relevant, but you don't have to be so bitter. Also, the Mariana Trench is over near Guam... open a book, learn how to type and get over yourself. What are you, 13?

    I'm one of the lucky ones in Los Angeles today. It was 112 here at 2PM, and I made the mistake of taking to dogs to the park and started getting dizzy real fast. Thank you ice water...

    Hot – yes it is! Try driving 80 mins home with no air – 120+ in the car. Home (also no air) will be over 100 and the dogs tongue will be stuck to the floor ...
