Well, there it is at last, the silver lining to climate change. Turns out it's so hot in Australia, you can totally roast a delicious hunk of meat on top of your car.
In Australia, a guy roasted some tasty pork on the roof of his Datsun on a scorching hot day. The not funny part about this is: climate change has led to catastrophic wildfires throughout Australia, and one could argue all sorts of things about factory farm meat production and anthropogenic -- oh ffs nevermind here's how he cooked the pork roast.

Stu Pengelly placed the slab of pork in a baking tin on the car seat of his red Datsun Sunny in Perth, Western Australia, for around 10 hours.

Pengelly also gave the temperature as it increased throughout the day, culminating in a “staggering 81 degrees Celsius inside temperature” (177.8 degrees Fahrenheit) at 1 p.m.
Pengelly told a reporter he wants to try cooking roast beef in his Datsun.
“A quiche would cook in 2 hours, I reckon,” he said.
