New all-time cold temperature record for Northern Hemisphere discovered

The coldest temperature ever recorded in the northern hemisphere just got colder, thanks to the work of climate detectives at the World Meteorological Organization.

Searching through the WMO archives of heat records from weather stations at the top of the world, researchers found the coldest temperature reading came from an automatic weather station in Greenland in midwinter almost 30 years ago, nearly 2C (3.6F) colder than the previous known records.

The Klinck station in Greenland, close to the summit of the ice sheet, recorded -69.6C on 22 December 1991, a substantially lower reading than the -67.8C recorded in Verkhoyansk in Russia in February 1892, and in Russia’s Oimekon site in January 1933.

The record came to light only after a WMO group tracked down the original scientists. The data had to go through rigorous checking before the new record was accepted.

It took almost 30 years to confirm an extra 2 degree drop in temp cuz they couldn't track down the original scientists who made the discovery?

They actually didn't take notice of this temperature at the time and it just went to archives. Now searching the archives they re-discovered it and tracked down the scientists.

This subject, of course, shouldn't at all be taken as a joke. I was joking and hoped to lighten up this sad news. I care about what's happening to earth, to our world, to us. :fatcat:
