The coldest place on earth is in the East Antarctic Plateau, but not at the highest peak. Rather, the coldest spots develop just downhill from a ridge that runs from Dome A to Dome Fuji. Data from NASA-USGS Landsat 8 satellite, and NASA’s MODIS sensor on the Aqua satellite.

With a large chunk of the U.S. having endured one of the coldest Thanksgiving holidays in years and even more brutally cold weather in the forecast over the next few days, 2013 is poised to have daily record lows outnumber daily record highs for the first time…
Winter is coming.
Graph Above; The bar graph on the left shows the rapidly rising CO2 emissions from the year 1900 to 2013.
The round pie chart on the right is the total amount of carbon that can be released to cause a 2 Degree C rise. At current emission rates this carbon budget will be exceeded very shortly.
(RealClimate) – A new study by British and Canadian researchers shows that the global temperature rise of the past 15 years has been greatly underestimated. The reason is the data gaps in the weather station network, especially in the Arctic. If you fill these data gaps using satellite…

The study, authored by Kevin Cowtan from the University of York and Robert Way from the University of Ottawa (who both also contribute to Skeptical Science), notes that the Met Office data set only covers about 84 percent of the Earth’s surface. There…

Graphic; Temperature anomalies 2013. Note the high (red) extremes in both the Arctic & the Antarctic.
Plenty of studies have shown that the Arctic is warming and that the ice caps are melting, but how does it compare to the past, and how serious is it?
New research shows that average summer…
These maps show, under two carbon dioxide emissions scenarios, the year in which cities around the world will reach “climate departure,” i.e. when the new average minimum temperatures exceed the old (1860-2005) average maximum temperatures.
