The data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) shows that on the planet, Antarctica is the hottest place on the globe, even hotter than Antarctica itself.
While the heat is in Antarctica, the data doesn’t show it on the other side of the world.
In fact, on a day-to-day basis, there’s no warming on the continents of Africa, Asia and the Americas.
The chart above, from NASA, shows the daily average temperature across the globe for each continent.
The red area on the map shows the warmest place, and the blue area the coolest place.
It’s the way we look at the temperature difference between the two sides of the planet.
In Antarctica, there is more than double the daily mean temperature difference.
For the region of Greenland, there are over 200 days of warming.
It is the only place in the world where the daily temperature difference is higher than 2 degrees Celsius.
This map from NOAA shows where the two continents stand in the data.
Antarctica is in the red area, which shows the hottest and the cool.
Greenland is in blue, which means the temperatures are average, and it is the coldest place on Earth.
