    One summer I put a thermometer out in the garden for a while to see what the temperature really was.
    It went up to 50 degrees this instrument.
    Went inside and when I came out I found said thermometer had exploded! Guess it must've gone above 50 out in the sun. LOL

    Easily achieved in direct sunlight. All temps quoted by authorities are shade temps. I once measured 80c on a storage tank roof, in January in China on an overcast day with ambient at 21C. The effect is called "solar gain" when a material absorbs energy from the sun and has no where to dissipate that heat. So it is possible that your thermometer glass got so hot it burst due to the accumulated heat.

    #23 Tony , yes solar gain. How often do you hear in motor sport that the air temperature is 23 degrees and then then refer to the track temperature as being 45 degrees so as you say Solar gain!!!

    Report today on how much solar and wind needs to be built by 2030 if the world is to survive.
    From the figures quoted one can assume there will not be much space left for the people.

    Seen a report to day that Australia is going to build the World's biggest solar farm by 2030.
    The farm will be tem times the size of London and the electricity generated will be used in electrolis to produce Hydrogen gas.
    By adopting this method Austria hopes to become an net exporter of hydrogen.

    Yes that is the plan.
    We now understand that Hydrogen, not wind and solar, is the future of all power generation and like natural gas it can be exported
