“Ojmjakon and Verkhoyansk are the coldest Siberian settlements,” says Argiris. “Ojmjakon measured already a night temperature of minus 54,7 degrees Celsius. Now winter begins like this, the chance is great that record lows will be broken in January-February.”

    -16 and -21 is not so cold. Here in Oslo we have such temperatures once a year, at least for short periods. -26 is something to consider. But -54 is really dangerous. Conclusion: the world is not as hot as they say.

    I LIVE IN NEW ORLEANS. WE NEVER GET BELOW +25 DEGREES. THAT IS PLENTY COLD ENOUGH. -57 SOUNDS LIKE THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON.
