The hottest place on earth is… Death Valley (California)! Well, it has the perfect name!

El Azizia (Libia) lost its fame as the hottest place on earth. It was the hottest place on earth since 1922, until recently.
Apparantly they made some mistakes measuring the temperature in the past. The temperature they measured in El Azizia was 9 degrees higher than it actually was.
So the WMO (World Meteorological Organization) adjusted their records. From now on the hottest place on earth is Death Valley.

Death Valley

Congrats, Death Valley!
