Los Angeles Breaks Record for Hottest Temperature

2010's tied for the hottest year on record so far. Over the weekend, DC tied the record for most 90 degree days in one year. And now America's 2nd-largest city has broken its record for highest temperature:
As of 12:50 p.m.: downtown L.A. had hit 113 degrees, a record high. Stuart Seto, a forecaster for the National Weather Service, said that's the hottest temperature recorded at the downtown station since record-keeping began in 1877.
As climate scientists have been predicting, it's just more evidence of global warming amplifying summer heat waves.
