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.
Exerpt from Reuters:
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.
“It worked a treat!” he said in a Facebook post with pictures of the cooked meat cut into slices to demonstrate its doneness.
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.
