South Pole Hits Record Cold November Temperatures
Extreme cold records continue to tumble at the South Pole. Three recent days – November 16th, 17th and 18th – have recorded
a daily record, with the 18th plunging to –45.2°C, compared with
–44.7°C on the same day in 1987. The records follow the six-month winter
of 2020-21, which was the coldest since records began in 1957.
Inexplicably, all these facts and trends have escaped reporting in the
mainstream media. The excuse might be that it is just weather, and
temperatures have always moved up and down. But the excuse doesn’t seem
to apply to the July 19th U.K. high of 40.3°C at RAF Coningsby, recorded
at the side of the runway used by after-burning Typhoon jets. This
record high has barely been out of the Net Zero headlines ever since.
In fact, anything getting colder barely gets a look-in these
days. Arctic sea ice is making a significant, near silent comeback.
Summer ice at the end of September
covered 4.92 million square kilometres, which was 1.35 million sq kms
higher than the 2012 low. Over on land, the Greenland ice sheet may have increased
in size over the last year to August 2022. Meanwhile, the zoologist Dr. Susan Crockford has reported
that this is the fifth year out of the last seven that enough sea ice
has formed along the west coast of Hudson Bay by mid-November for
hunting polar bears to be able to head out to the ice, “just as it did
in the 1980s”.
Of course, it has been a very bad year for climate
'catastrophists' all round. Coral is growing on the Great Barrier Reef
with a vengeance, just a few years after journalists and their ‘experts’
warned it was likely to disappear.
