On Thursday, the United Nations recognized a new record temperature for Antarctica of 18.3 degrees Celsius (64.9 degrees Fahrenheit).
The United Nations World Meteorological Organization (WMO) reported that on March 6th February 2020 at the Argentine research station Esperanza on the Antarctic Peninsula the record heat was reached. « The review of this high temperature record is important because it helps us to get a picture of the weather and climate at one of the earth’s last borders, » said WMO Secretary General Petteri Taalas has risen by almost three degrees Celsius. The average annual temperature in Antarctica ranges from minus 10 degrees Celsius (14 degrees Fahrenheit) on the coast to minus 60 degrees Celsius (negative 76 degrees Fahrenheit) at the highest points in the interior of the continent.
« This new record shows once again that climate change requires urgent action, » said Celeste Saulo, first vice president of the WMO and head of the national weather service of Argentina.
