Why do I need antifreeze coolant when I don’t live in a cold climate?

Most modern cars run their cooling systems at temperatures close to 100 degrees celsius. The bonus of using the antifreeze chemical (glycol) in coolant is that it also raises the boiling point. This gives protection against localised or hot spot boiling which can cause engine damage.
