In each answer:

One of the two words anagrams to a national capital.

As hinted by the given image:

The capitals should be sorted from west to east. Then, every answer has a word left over, which should also be considered.

So, when this is done:

sauna's temperature - NASSAU, the bahamas / Temperature 77.4°W mail shipment - LIMA, peru / sHipment 77.0°W arouse criticism - ROSEAU, dominica / crIticism 61.4°W scariest monsters - CASTRIES, st lucia / monSters 60.9°W mole species - LOMÉ, togo / specIes 1.2°E successive pairs - PARIS, france / succeSsive 2.3°E processing units - TUNIS, tunisia / procesSing 10.2°E unaccompanied solo - OSLO, norway / unaccomPanied 10.7°E more significant - ROME, italy / significAnt 12.5°E hasten foreclosure - ATHENS, greece / foreclosuRe 23.7°E meal replacements - MALÉ, maldives / replacemenTs 73.5°E animal mitochondria - MANILA, philippines / mitochondriA 121.0°E

Reading down the diagonal of the remaining words (first letter of the first, second letter of the second, etc.) spells THIS IS SPARTA.

    $\begingroup$ Of course, if it doesn't make sense why this was the answer, I'll admit that the entire thing was purely self-celebratory :) $\endgroup$ – jafe Nov 1 at 11:34
