New Record of –135.8 degrees F Set
For Coldest Temperature on Earth

This news of lowest temperature recorded was measured by satellite in Antarctica and reported by the Associated Press on Dec. 9, 2013. The AP news report explains that this temperature will not appear in the Guinness Book of World Records because it wasn’t measured by a thermometer at ground level. The AP reporter noted correctly that the occurrence of a single temperature wouldn’t be enough to either support or disprove global warming. However, it’s been cold for a while in Antarctica. According to the AP report, the old cold record was –128.6 set at Russia’s Vostok Station in Antarctica in 1983. Then a new record was set in August 2010 when it reached –135.8 at a new location. In July 31, 2013, the temperature was recorded as –135.3 at another location fairly close to the location of the temperature recorded in August 2010. And now we have another record, –135.8.
