Every year we hear tragic stories about children and pets dying after being left in a closed up car in the summer heat. It's really amazing at just how hot it can get in a car that is parked in the sun especially with our hot summers here in Southwest Louisiana.

In this video entitled Cooking with Chef Haim Cohen, the chef very graphically shows us just how hot a car can get by cooking a raw pizza in the back seat. The inside of the car is, in fact, so hot that the raw pizza actually cooks in 30 minutes.

While it's a very interesting video to watch, the message doesn't get lost. Please don't leave children or pets in a closed up car even for a few minutes.
