London’s ‘Walkie Talkie’ skyscraper is putting the street on fire

London Walkie Talkie building melts car

You might already have heard of it, as I have read about it several times today already. The new skyscraper in London (still under construction) nicknamed ‘walkie talkie’ or now ‘walkie scorchie’ .) is literally putting the street on fire. His glass facade is reflecting the sunlight and bouncing heat from the sun on to buildings and everything else that is on the street across. A reporter measured 92 degrees celsius in a spot of the street! Can you imagine? Apparently it’s melting parts of cars, causing tiles to smash and paintwork to blister and makes it possible to fry eggs in the street! Hot!
