Scientists: Antarctic set record cold temperatures

Despite Al Gore’s Golden Goose tales of our ultimate demise by way of Global Warming, people are freezing to death across the U.S. and now we learn that at -135.8 degrees, it was recently so cold in Antarctica that taking a breath would have been extremely painful if not fatal.

It seems the entire global warming scheme concocted by the likes of Gore and Michael Moore has hit a wall of ice that won't be thawing anytime soon.

For those who wonder why tobacco-farmer turned vice-president/ climatologist Gore hasn’t been spouting disastrous global-warming weather forecasts lately, there may be an additional explanation. The global climate isn’t cooperating; even Gore's own behemoth personal carbon foot print has failed to heat up the planet.

As themes like “Winter storm pushes up U.S. East Coast after deep-freeze in the South” fill headlines of national newspapers, scientists on Monday reported the coldest temperatures ever recorded on the face of the Earth occurred in Eastern Antarctica during August of 2010.

However, 2010 is ancient history when it comes to Global Warming theories by certain ideologically inclined politicians turned scientists who in recent years changed the name of their Global Warming movement to “Climate Change” for political cover. That is why it is imperative to mention that on July 31 of 2013 Antarctica came close to breaking that 2010 record when the temperature plunged to -135.3 degrees. By comparison, the old record had been -128.6 degrees.

Ice scientist Ted Scambos at the National Snow and Ice Data Center said the record low temperature is about 50 degrees colder than anything in Alaska during a presentation at the American Geophysical Union scientific meeting in San Francisco Monday.

Another possible reason Mr. Gore remains burrowed under warm political covers somewhere is that scientists also recently revealed that the Earth is cooling, not warming. In fact in the North Pole’s arctic ice coverage is increasing significantly enough that some scientists claim that the world is heading for a period of cooling that will not end until the middle of this century.

Professor Anastasios Tsonis, of the University of Wisconsin, said: "We are already in a cooling trend, which I think will continue for the next 15 years at least. There is no doubt the warming of the 1980s and 1990s has stopped.”
