      95% of earth unseasonably warm. “Point” to 5% that is unseasonably cold, see there is no “global warming.” This crap is all over Facebook.

        It’s not even unreasonably cold for Yakutsk.

      Temperatures of minus 50 C have become less common in recent years because of climate change, with permafrost showing increasing signs of thawing.

      Legitimately disclaimed within the article itself this time. This isn’t new or more common than it used to be. The snow is the record because the warmer air holds more water x_x

    This is the best summary I could come up with:


    MOSCOW, Dec 4 (Reuters) - Temperatures in parts of Siberia plummeted to minus 56 degrees Celsius (minus 69 degrees Fahrenheit) on Monday while blizzards blanketed Moscow in record snowfall and disrupted flights as winter weather swept across Russia.

    In the Sakha Republic, located in the northeastern part of Siberia and home to Yakutsk, one of the world’s coldest cities, temperatures fell below minus 50 C, according to the region’s weather stations.

    In Oymyakon, an area in Sakha, the temperature was recorded at minus 56 degrees Celsius on Monday evening.

    Russian forecasters said it would feel like more than minus 60 degrees Celsius in Oymyakon given the wind and humidity and that temperatures would fall further overnight.

    Temperatures of minus 50 C have become less common in recent years because of climate change, with permafrost showing increasing signs of thawing.

    In the Russian capital, some of the biggest snowfalls ever seen on Dec. 3 left swathes of Moscow blanketed in drifts of more than 35 cm of snow in just one day.
