Like it hot? 70°C on open soil

Wow, 70°C on the tilled soil (38°C air temperature). Incredible. In comparison, the patchy clover right next to it is 33°C cooler!

I am tempted to exclaim: If you want to cool the planet, cover the soil!

More on the background of the influence of land use on climate and water cycle in my UNEP paper, presentation, conference “Climate Landscapes”.
