Record frosts at the South Pole

Record frosts at the South Pole

The South Pole of Antarctica was hit by the coldest winter on record.

Global warming theorists try to ignore the ultra-low temperatures in the Southern Hemisphere. From April to September, the average temperature at the Amundsen-Scott Antarctic station dropped to minus 61 degrees Celsius.

This has not been recorded in Antarctica since 1957, when these measurements began. As writes “to express“, For many, the increase in frost in Antarctica was a big surprise. The extreme cold came at a time when hot summers reigned in the Northern Hemisphere, close to record levels. However, the summer months in 2016, 2019 and 2020 were, on average, warmer than last summer.

Scientists explain that the reason for the freezing of Antarctica was a strong polar vortex, which erupted for unknown reasons in the stratosphere, starting at a height of 10 kilometers.

This vortex allegedly held the cold air over the South Pole. Winds in the polar stratosphere were stronger than usual. The Antarctic ice began to grow again.

It was coldest on the Antarctic plateau. At the Russian base “Vostok” on September 30, the temperature dropped to 79.4 degrees Celsius. At the North Pole, it is now about minus 12 degrees, the water temperature is minus 1.7 degrees, ice is growing.
