Can’t believe weirdos that prefer summer over winter. You can only get so naked, especially publicly.
Again, not when you combine each temperature with the respective amount of light received during each season.
If you work outside for a living, I think there is a good argument to be made for colder weather being more comfortable, so long as you're moving around.
That's going to be a hard disagree from me. I can handle 115 in the shade. -30 though I don't know if I could actually wear enough clothes to stay warm unless they're heated.
Ehh, Kuwait is hotter than a lot of these places especially passed #4. I'm not sure why it wasn't included. The average summer temps in Kuwait are 43-48C with it hitting 50 every now and then, and 54C in 2016 is the highest temperature recorded there.Okay.. It took me a minute to appreciate that what they had was the highest recorded temperature in the world - this week.
There are places far warmer across Africa and the Middle East, if one chooses to ignore Death Valley in the US.

The actual average summer daily high in Kuwait is 41C.
I don't disagree.. I was there in 2016 when I saw a reported temperature of 53 degrees first hand. The catch was that this was the 'reported' temperature.. On every car dashboard (might have been about 6 through the day) I rode in, the outside temperature was recorded at 57!
Where did you get 41c? Over here it says 47c, which jives with what it was like when I lived there. 41c is spring weather (which was my favourite season :P). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kuwait_City#Climate
Chances are the temperature measured by the cars was the temperature in the sun. Temperatures are recorded in the shade because that's a more accurate measurement of the air temperature. Once you add sunlight you are also adding in heat caused by the sun's rays into the measurement as well as the air temperature.I don't disagree..

I was told that the meteorological department deliberately downplays forecasts because of a law that mandated shorter labour hours any time the temperature was recorded at 55 or above. No idea if that is true, but it wouldn't surprise me if it was.
The first figures that come up in Google are from NOAA, and they are MUCH lower. Even going by what you posted 41 is hot for spring.
The same as other refugees. Create a problem, ignore the problem, then complain when the refugees show up. That depressingly is the current plan.
