Record cold in Siberia: A bone-crushing minus 62C (-79.6F)

Record cold in Siberia – A bone-crushing minus 62C:

There’s no evidence of global warming in western Siberia, says the Siberian Times.

The Khanti-Mansi region set a new record with a bone-crushing minus 62C (-79.6F) at the Bolshoe Olkhovskoe oilfield. The village of Kazym in the same district of Beloyarsky hit minus 58C (-72.4F).

“In Nadym, it nudged minus 50C, and all schools were closed. In Tyumen, school classes were cancelled from grades 1 to 9, with minus 36C the trigger for children to stay home.”

“Nizhnevartovsk hit minus 50C, the coldest winter in ten years in the city.

“Such temperatures happen in eastern Siberia, but in the west they are more rare.”

“Meteorologists say it may get colder still.”

  1. CERN Antimatter Research: Unleashing ‘Hell On Earth’?
    Just this week, they were able to tackle atoms of antimatter and make them shine by using a laser.

    The antihydrogen atom responded the same way a hydrogen atom would under the light. The scientific community has applauded this discovery and said that this is a major step in understanding the universe.
