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.

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.
