Temperature in Antarctica exceeds 20 degrees

The temperature in Antarctica broke all records and exceeded 20 degrees last Sunday.

According to scientists, the 20.75 degrees recorded on the island of Seymour is an “incredible and abnormal” phenomenon.
This information comes practically a week after knowing that, on February 6, Argentine Antarctica experienced the warmest day since there are meteorological records in the region, with the thermometers reaching 18.3 degrees.

These temperatures still need to be confirmed by the World Meteorological Organization but further aggravate the concern about global warming. Scientists say that if all of the Antarctic ice melts over the next few generations, sea levels will rise by 50 to 60 meters.
