Antarctica Hits 64.9 Degrees, Highest Temperature Ever Recorded On Continent


Recommended Posts

Ia rattling new development, a research station in Antarctica registered the highest temperature ever recorded on the icy continent: 64.9 degrees Fahrenheit.

 

Argentina’s Esperanza Base on the northern edge of Antarctica’s Trinity Peninsula marked the high (18.3 Celsius) on Thursday. The previous record was 63.5 degrees on March 24, 2015.

 

The United Nations’ World Meteorological Organization is organizing a panel of experts to verify the finding. But a WMO statement noted: “Everything we have seen thus far indicates a likely legitimate record.”

 

WMO will set up expert panel to verify new record temperature for the #Antarctic continent reported by @SMN_Argentina of 18.3°C on 6 Feb at Esperanza research base. Latest news on this and Antarctic glaciers at https://bit.ly/2OyD2ju

The record is startling because the last one was set just five years ago, and the new one is almost 1 degree higher, climate scientist James Renwick of Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand told The Guardian. 

“To have a new record set that quickly is surprising — but who knows how long that will last? Possibly not that long at all,” warned Renwick, who has helped verify other records in the past.

 

More extreme warmth is likely in the area in the next few days with temperatures as high as 50 degrees above normal predicted by some weather models.

The Antarctic Peninsula is among the fastest-warming regions of the planet, according to the WMO. Average temperatures have soared 5 degrees in just 50 years, threatening the ice shelf and glaciers, which can catastrophically increase sea levels as they melt. The amount of ice lost annually from the continent’s ice sheet increased at least sixfold from 1979 to 2017. 

Cracks in the massive Pine Island Glacier “have been growing rapidly” in the last few days, as shown on satellite images, according to the WMO.

Thursday’s record high follows Earth’s warmest January on record.

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) called the new high temperature “insane.” Others on Twitter had similar reactions.

 

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer quipped to readers that if they needed a break from chilly city weather, they could head to Antarctica. Twitter responses also noted it was warmer in Antarctica than in New Orleans, San Diego and Los Angeles.

 

The hottest temp ever recorded in #Antarctica were measured on Thursday. It was nearly 65 degrees Fahrenheit (18.3 Celsius).

ANTARCTICA REACHED 65 DEGREES FAHRENHEIT TODAY, shattering all heat records. Yet they STILL says global warming is a hoax, and their cult followers agree... while Big Oil continues to rake in billions as the world burns. WHEN WILL THE MADNESS END?!

 
 
 
 

Antarctica:

1. melting is accelerating
2. record melt of 15%: Dec 2019
3. hottest day ever 18.3°C: Feb 2020
4. irreversible collapse has begun
5. rapid deglaciation of West Antarctica set to begin by 2027 with staggering consequences for humanity
6. sea level rise chaos by 2035

It’s 65 degrees in Antarctica, and people are upset when protesters block streets to call for climate action.

Our house is on fire, and people are upset when kids block the street outside trying to wave down the fire department.

 

As Antarctica transforms into prime real estate for a Sandals Resort, here are the top recipients of oil & gas industry cash:

Mitt Romney: $7.6M

John Cornyn: $4M

Ted Cruz: $3.6M

Mitch McConnell: $2.4M

Jim Inhofe: $2.1M

Kevin Brady: $1.9M

Kevin McCarthy: $1.9M https://twitter.com/Public_Citizen/status/1225829263368216579 

 

So you mean to tell me it’s the same temperature in LA as it is in Antarctica rn? Earth... you in danger girl

 
 
 
 

I'm not a climate scientist, but if you can be outside in Antarctica wearing a t-shirt and not die, something is probably wrong. https://twitter.com/washingtonpost/status/1225822044127928321

It snowed in Massachusetts last week

 

One of your experts claimed we'd never see snow again in 2000

Smithsonian...

 

"Known for its expansive glaciers and the coldest temperatures on Earth, the Antarctica of today is a far cry from its tenure as a subtropical paradise 53 million years ago, replete with palm trees, summer highs near 25°C (77 F), and frost-free winters sitting near 10°C (50 F) despite the endless darkness."

 

I wonder what kind of SUVs they had back then?

Yeah, It's MIDDLE OF SUMMER IN THE SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE!!!

Nothing new there since it "gets warm" there EVERY year about this time and has since, well, a couple of hundred million years or so.

 

ROFLMAO!!!
 

WEATHER PORN disguised as "climate change".


These SCHITSTAINS are soooooooo easily manipulated. PATHETICALLY EASILY MANIPULATED taboot!!!

 The NY Times wrote, “Antarctica, the coldest, windiest and driest continent on Earth, set a record high temperature on Thursday, underscoring global warming” But the fact that Antarctica is the coldest place on earth, has nothing to do with a temperature record at a single weather station, Esperanza. Esperanza is located at the warmest, most northerly part of the mountainous Antarctica peninsula. Esperanza is most sensitive to El Nino warming. It most sensitive to the southward flow of warm moist subtropical winds. And Esperanza’s topography always amplifies temperatures when winds from the northwest cause foehn wind events. What happened at Esperanza has nothing to do with Antarctica’s overall climate trends, never mind any global warming trend.

 

In the 2016 peer-reviewed paper “Absence of 21st century Warming on Antarctic Peninsula consistent with Natural Variability”, Antarctic climate experts documented that from 1979–1997, Antarctic had indeed experienced the globe’s fastest warming temperatures, increasing by 3.2 °C [5.8 °F] per century. In contrast, from 1999–2014, temperatures then decreased at a rate 4.7 °C [8.5 °F} per century. This strong cooling trend is rarely reported or referred to by media alarmists. Dishonestly, the Guardian ignores the recent cooling trends to suggest a recent one day Esperanza temperature record is “a sign that warming in Antarctica is happening much faster than global average” and “is the foreshadowing of what is to come.” Likewise the NY Times dishonestly claims, “The high temperature is in keeping with the earth’s overall warming trend, which is in large part caused by emissions of greenhouse gases.

What is a foehn event? Foehn events cause rapid extreme temperature jumps simply due to changes in the air pressure as winds descend from a mountain top. During the 2015 foehn event, Esperanza’s daily temperature jumped from 0°C [32°F] 2 days before, to a record setting 17.5°C [63.5°F]. Elsewhere, Antarctic foehn winds are common and have been extensively studied, often raising maximum temperatures by 10+°C [18+°F] above normal.

 

As seen in figure “c” below, weather systems in 2015 had driven a warm and humid subtropical air flow from the northwest onto the northern Antarctic Peninsula. That warm air flow raised the western peninsula’s temperatures above normal. Then those winds rose up and over the peninsula’s mountain range amplifying temperatures even further on the east side of the peninsula. As the air rose, its water vapor condensed, both releasing precipitation and releasing latent heat that had further warmed the air. As that warmer and drier air passed over the mountain crest and descended onto Esperanza, temperatures warmed further as air pressure increased temperatures at a rate of over 5°F for every 1000-foot drop in altitude. A typical foehn event.

As happens in all the earth’s mountainous regions, foehn winds warm the air due to simple physics and well-established gas laws. Warming does not require any added heat from the sun or CO2. During Esperanza’s 2015 record warmth, temperatures had hovered around 0.5°C [0.9 °F] the day before. But as winds from the northwest increased air flow over the peninsula’s mountains, those foehn winds increased Esperanza’s temperatures by 17.5 °C [63.5 °F]. Those same dynamics were in play during the February 2020 record temperature.

its the summer solstice dipstick. come August it will most likely break coldest temperature ever.  damn. Oh, just last week on this forum someone posted NASA saying the sun is hitting a cooling stage for the next 30 years.

 

One talking point mentality that cannot put eternity back together again as a point of getting eternally spaced apart now.

 

ha ha ha ha ha ha damn your group think is so smart..

 

Oh thanks for the links to the network of stupidity you are complying with to fool the population from now on.

Hilarious.........

 

Antarctica records the higjest temp. In 118  years and liberals go f ucking nuts.........

 

Hey, beanie......... you do realize that 118 years of recording temperatures  in Antarctica is fu ck all and proves nothing because 118 years is a very miniscule time period when discussing the lifespan of Earth...

and to top that, now is physically eternity of the universe never the same details twice from now on. damn natural perpetual balancing  that reproductions cannot reproduce again.  gee your time table logistics are just projections of a false narrative used for 4,000 years within one species thinking its was a gift by something larger than life so far and never existed beyond soical narratives within one species in this atmospehre..

most scientists disagree with you.... but are you smarter than they are, Mr. Iran Expert?
