Feeling chilly? Here's cold comfort: You could be in East Antarctica which new data says set a record for soul-crushing cold.
Try 135.8 degrees Fahrenheit below zero; that's 93.2 degrees below zero Celsius, which sounds only slightly toastier. Better yet, don't try it. That's so cold scientists say it hurts to breathe.
A new look at NASA satellite data revealed that Earth set a new record for coldest temperature recorded. It happened in August 2010 when it hit -135.8 degrees. Then on July 31 of this year, it came close again: -135.3 degrees.
The old record had been -128.6 degrees, which is -89.2 degrees Celsius.

The polar bears, penguins and seals are freezing to death because of our irresponsible use of carbon based fuels.
Heck, its snowing right now here in Maryland.
Huh? Did someone not tell TWC that Arctic ice has been growing this year at a record rate? That the Arctic has just had one of its shortest and coldest summers ever recorded? If so, they failed to make any mention of it in their propaganda.
August 2012................................................................August 2013
I think we should send Al Gore down to check out the situation.
The Global Warming hoaxers will say that the reason for the record cold was that the cold air was pushed to Antartica because of the hot air.
he doesn't like cold weather.
And they’ll be right, because they define what is fact.
But, but, but this is not possible...I know this because I’ve been told for 20 years that we’re wrecking the planet and it’s getting warmer.
My guess is the global warming is so extreme now that all the thermometers are malfunctioning. Someone please create a hockey stick graph to show this.
I know.That’s why I’d love to send him there for a week or so.
Al Gore pays those carbon credits so that he can live and luxury and still be morally pure green and saving this planet.
Warm globally, cool locally!
Dispatch Al right away...
(Better yet, let's wait until July-August 2014.)
That’s really cold. I kite wouldn’t fly in cold like that.
IOW... Some of that "snow" they had that night was frozen CO2.
Eat that Algore.
Can’t wait to see that bumper sticker.
And I’m sitting here complaining about 20 degrees.
Didn’t the founder of The Weather Channel reject global warming?
Yes. John Coleman, the founder of The Weather Channel described global warming as "the greatest scam in history".

That’s so cold the spit freezes INSIDE your mouth.
Didn’t some famous philosopher tell us that “All Global Warming is Local”?
Did you read the part about streaking at the South Pole?
Haha, no I didn’t. Practical joke: Lock the door when your cabin-mate does that. Plead cabin fever.
So cold lawyers have their hands in their own pockets.
So cold democrats kept their hands in their own pockets.
Remember a couple summers ago when every high temperature was seen as absolute proof of global warming? Now much of the country is in the deep freeze and the coldest temperature ever seen on earth has been recorded and the climate change cultists are either silent or using tortured logic to explain how these abnormally cold temperatures are evidence of man caused climate change using the same global warming fraud.
Right, I was just thinking about the June heat wave in the southwest this year, where Death Valley had a record or near it. All the warmists were really getting ready to celebrate. Then the summer turned out to have fewer record breaking and 100 degree temps than there had been for many years. But they’ve been handed the “keys to the Kingdom” and whatever they say is true. Obama’s Interior Secretary said so.
Ha ha...awesome, thank you my fellow B1G fan.
Since I invented it you can steal it and print away!
I think it was ancient Roman Senator and philosopher named Alfius Pius Liberalis who was affectionately known as The Goracle!
That's called the 300 Club?
...speaking of cold...
I was playing with a Frisbee at the South Pole in the summer of 1983. We were inside the dome.
The Frisbee didnt last long. In flight, it nicked (barely scraped the rim) of a pole - it shattered into hundreds of shards in an instant. It looked like it had exploded!
Newcomers to the station frequently showed up to meals with characteristic white blisters on their noses. These came from stepping off the plane and raising their frozen camera to their face (and nose) to take thir first picture of the place.
The previous record cold was set in the winter of 1983 at our nearest neighbor (Vostok). I spent the next year at Amundsen-Scott.
