Antarctica logs hottest temperature on record with a reading of 18.3C.

It was recorded by an Argentinian research station thermometer at Esperanza on the northern tip of the continent’s peninsula. It beats Antarctica’s previous record of 17.5C, . The station’s data goes back to 1961.

A record high temperature of 18.3C (64.9F) has been logged on the continent of Antarctica.

The reading, taken on Thursday by Argentine research base Esperanza, is 0.8C hotter than the previous peak temperature of 17.5C, in March 2015.

The temperature was recorded in the Antarctic Peninsula, on the continent's north-west tip - one of the fastest-warming regions on earth.

It is being verified by the (WMO).

"[This] is not a figure you would normally associate with Antarctica, even in the summertime," WMO spokeswoman Clare Nullis told reporters in Geneva.

As long as the air is fresh (earth is green) and the clean water is plentiful I'm not bothered in the slightest.

Btw, shouldn't their be a relative high temperature environment?
The earth isn't an instant manifest of what we do to it. It's a progression, sooner or later you'll feel the effects and you'll attempt to prevent the cause that's in motion only to understand that it's beyond recovery. The earth is like that one Gf who keeps holding in all the negative emotions until she explodes on you and she won't forgive you.

High temperature means melted glaciers. Meaning no more glacier. In many regions that are dependent on a seasonal rainfall, glaciers are a reliable water resource in the dry season. A lot of rivers originate from glaciers which may die without them. Plus it means sea water level may rise and drown coastal areas... And it's just two things on top of my mind..

So the "green" on earth and clean fresh water is in danger with high temperature at many places. Civilizations in the past were destroyed when rivers dried up for some reason or changed coursed due to geological/environmental/human activities etc.

That's just one aspect.
