Northern Hemisphere sets new, all-time record cold temperature: -96.1°F In Oymyakon Siberia

That's -71.2°C, and it shatters the previous record of -68°C (-90.4°F) set in 1933!

Northern Hemisphere sets new, all-time record cold temperature: -96.1°F In Oymyakon Siberia !! -- Earth Changes -- Sott.net

"There's been a lot of confusion over the last couple of days concerning a record low temperature allegedly just recorded in Siberia. News reports in the mainstream media made it sound like the reading was recorded decades ago, or they just muddled it. For example The Mail had a feature here. No mention that it's a record set just days ago.

But now it appears that the record was actually set on February 19, in Oymyakon, Siberia.

The confusion is understandable, as the news just doesn't square with the global warming narrative"

"Doesn't square ..." ??? - nonsense. One of the oldest and most irrelevant strawman arguments used to "refute" warming scenarios.

I notice the Toronto Sun is reporting this as well if you do a search on Google News. However there are few reliable sources actually reporting this.

Wunderground is also reporting similar temperatures to Ogimet with no temperature this month lower than -56C.

Yea, I'd like to see a credible source.

And even if it's true, the news has little to do with the "global warming narrative".

On further investigation it seems that something has been lost in translation with this report, there is a suggestion -71.2C was an unofficial temperature recorded in 1924.
Reports Of All-Time Record Low Northern Hemisphere Temperature, But No Official Confirmation

I also notice that a BBC report from back in 2010 refers to a temperature of -71.2C.

Just another media screwup. I wonder how long it will be before the officially discredited Azizia "record" will disappear from reputable references?

There appears to be a lot of confusion with regards to the record, so I wouldn't put a new entry in the record books yet.

As for the global warming narrative, this record doesn't prove the world is cooling in 2013 any more than the al-Aziziah record proved the world was warming in 1923 (it wasn't, nor has it cooled since then). To be sure, with a big enough cooling or warming you'd expect new global heat or cold records, but the relationship is quite weak, since this is just one spot we're talking about.
