These are the 5 hottest places in the world

We introduce you to five particularly hostile places, which are undoubtedly fascinating in their radical nature. But they are also a reminder of how dangerous heat and drought can be for life on Earth. For the ranking, we compared the soil temperatures in each case. Here we go.

The desert plateau Dasht-e Lut in Iran currently holds the record for the highest ground temperature ever measured on earth at 70.7 degrees Celsius. Satellites repeatedly measured between 2003 and 2009 - the highest value dates back to 2005. In the Persian language, the word "Lut" means bare land without water and plants - aptly for the salt desert, in which many bacteria because of cannot survive the extreme temperatures.

Large parts of Australia can heat up significantly in the summer months, causing devastating fires that are difficult to control. Nevertheless, even some particularly hot regions are populated - such as the state of Queensland, where temperatures rose to 69.3 degrees Celsius in 2003, according to NASA.

The "Flaming Mountains" of China are a mountain range on the Silk Road and near the city of Turpan in the north-west of the country. They got their name because of the red, eroded sandstone, but possibly also because of the enormous heat in this place. Here, too, a satellite recorded a record temperature: in 2008 it was extraordinarily hot here at 66 degrees Celsius.

Impressive: A value of 56.7 degrees Celsius was measured in Death Valley in California in 1913. Death Valley is located in the Mojave Desert and stretches across the states of California and Nevada. On July 12, 2012, a nighttime world record of 41.7 degrees Celsius was also measured.

The city of Kebili is located in the middle of Jebil National Park, which, together with the salt lake Chot el Djerid, is considered a magnet for tourists. The peak heat here is 55 degrees Celsius, which should make excursions and sightseeing quite difficult. This record was measured in July 1931 - the World Meteorological Organization even lists the value as the highest temperature ever measured in Africa.

So that's the hottest places on our planet. But not only there it can get pretty hot: Due to global warming, temperatures are currently rising all over the world...

Global warming is one of the greatest challenges of our time and will hit the countries of the world with varying degrees of severity in the coming decades. The effects are already being felt. In Germany alone, it has often been too dry in recent years. Even if it rains and snows a lot in winter: According to the Drought Monitor Germany, the deeper soil layers are so dry that they can hardly absorb any water and the groundwater level therefore does not rise.

It doesn't matter how you feel about the controversy over the adhesive protest action by climate activists "Last Generation" or coal mining in Lützerath - you can hardly escape the scientific facts. The global climate has already warmed by 1.1 degrees Celsius compared to pre-industrial times. By the turn of the century, it could be five degrees Celsius, explains the Baden-Württemberg State Agency for Civic Education and at the same time refers to the IPCC report from 2022.

Now your opinion is needed:

Climate researchers assume that natural disasters will increase as the temperature increases. According to the authors of the report, 3.3 and 3.6 billion people are vulnerable to the negative consequences of climate change. Accordingly, Europe must also prepare for more frequent heat waves, ecological damage and persistent droughts.

Ground that is not covered with vegetation because it has been deforested or a drought has destroyed trees and other plants heats up particularly quickly. So to counteract the vicious circle, uncultivated land and forests are needed. On the one hand, because the roots moisten the soil with water and thereby cool it, on the other hand, because the ambient temperature drops due to evaporation. But nature can also counteract climate change through photosynthesis, since CO₂ is bound.

Speaking of green, green rays have been spotted in the night sky in Hawaii:
