Chicago hit 9 degrees below zero last night. Antarctica in its summer reached negative 13. That’s just four degrees difference! Where are are the penguins! I want some penguins walking around Chicago.
Last year in 2008 we got within 14 degrees of the South Pole. (Also, these temperature readings are from the Amundsen-Scott base in Antarctica. That’s the true South Pole. Don’t be mislead by people who say they go to Antarctica, but only go along the base. Those areas are like a beach compared to the impenetrable South Pole.)
