Had someone been in Antarctica last Tuesday, he’d probably have felt at home and even warmer than someone in UK at that very time. Mildly warm coffee would have frozen in seconds but sipping it would have been pleasurable.

A record breaking 17.5 degree Celsius temperature was recorded at Argentina’s Esperanza Base, northern tip of Antarctica. The high temperature is highly alarming as the average temperature of the continent is  -10 to -30 degrees Celsius.

The recorded temperature broke the earlier record of 17.4 C on 24 April, 1961.

The rise in the temperature was because of the increasing temperature worldwide due to global warming. Carbon dioxide, a green house gas majorly responsible for global warming has already exceed its permissible atmospheric concentration of 30 ppm by 50 ppm.

A new study last week also revealed that the continent is losing ice at 310 cubic kilometer per year causing sea levels to rise dramatically.
