Coldest temperature ever recorded on Earth, year 2018

Recommended Posts

The coldest temperatures ever recorded on Earth was recorded in Antarctica in June 2018, in the winter of the southern hemisphere. While the north pole is getting warmer, the south pole seems to be getting colder. The reason for this could be that the north pole has no land mass underneath it. It is totally surrounded by warmer ocean waters and has a great land mass underneath it which would somewhat insulate it from the surrounding oceans, while possibly absorbing some of its relatively small amount of heat.

A changing increase in the temperature differences between the poles as well as possible temperature differences  between the northern and southern hemispheres, could also involve the Earth's ever changing cycles of its axis of rotation, its precession (wobble of its axis), the relative position of the planet alignments, solar cycles and conditions, or a combination of one or more of these ever changing conditions.

PLEASE EXCUSE THE ANNOYING COMMERCIAL BREAKS IN THE CONVERSATION:

As with everything these days, the cost of keeping the Ex-C forum up and running has been rising. Inflation? In part, but the primary reason is this: As participation in the forums grows, costs increase. The Ex-C forums will remain free of charge to everyone, but if you believe this little corner of the Internet provides value to you or others, and you feel inclined to help keep us online, please consider making a one-time donation or becoming a regular contributor. Contribution options appear under the "Upgrade" link above, and can be accessed by clicking here.

Oh, and as an incentive (no, you won't be given any bogus promises of eternal bliss), if you do become a regular contributor by signing up for any monthly or yearly patron package, this annoying ADVO will disappear.

And now, back to the regularly scheduled conversation...



"The temperature they measured? A stunning negative 144 degrees Fahrenheit (-97.8 degrees Celsius)" 

Wow, way lower than I would have imagined!
