- Heat in Antarctica breaks record so far, Antarctica is one of the coldest regions in the world
- The United Nations says temperatures in the region reached 18.3 degrees Celsius last year.
- The Antarctic region is one of the fastest warming regions on Earth
Even in Antarctica, one of the coldest places in the world, the scorching heat has broken all records so far. The United Nations has also now assumed that heat mercury in Antarctica reached 18.3 degrees Celsius last year. The World Meteorological Organization of the United Nations said that on February 6, 2020, the temperature at the Esperanza station in Argentina, located in the Antarctica, reached 18.3 degrees Celsius.
The organization’s secretary general, Pettari Talus, said the record temperature needed to be announced as it helped build a broader understanding of the climate and global warming. The Antarctic region is one of the fastest warming regions on Earth, he said. Here the mercury has risen to 3 degrees Celsius in 50 years.
Sea level could rise to 200 feet The
At that time there was a temperature of 17.5 degrees Celsius. Following the sign of rising heat, the United Nations agency began investigating the weather conditions throughout the region. He noted that the air has become an area of high pressure causing the heat to rise.
Earlier, the National Snow and Ice Data Center warned that Antarctica was warming faster than other parts of the earth. Antarctica has accumulated so much water in the form of ice that it can melt up to 200 feet above sea level worldwide. The intermediate surface has increased by an average of 9 inches since 1880. One-third of that water is from melting ice in Greenland and Antarctica.
