  • [Gizmodo] It Was 100 Degrees in Siberia Today. Yes, That Siberia

    A freak heatwave has been scorching most of the Arctic for weeks now, but it broke records Saturday when the temperature hit 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit in a town in Siberia, one of Russia’s northernmost regions.

    It’s likely the hottest temperature ever recorded north of the Arctic Circle, CBS meteorologist Jeff Berardelli wrote on Twitter, though the recording is still pending verification.

    That's 38c in a place that's where it usually gets up to 18-20c (64-70f) this time of year. This is actually really worrying. Current climate change estimates say we should have been at this point in 2100.

    ...along the same lines, a few weeks ago in Siberia, a giant oil storage tank for a power plant leaked when the supports in the permafrost gave way...this will be an issue for all nations with infrastructure built on permafrost
