    WASHINGTON (AP) — Feeling chilly? Here’s cold comfort: You could be in East Antarctica which new data says set a record for soul-crushing cold.

    Try 135.8 degrees Fahrenheit below zero. Better yet, don’t. That’s so cold scientists say it hurts to breathe.

    A new look at NASA satellite data revealed that Earth set a new record for coldest temperature recorded. It happened in August 2010 when it hit -135.8 degrees. Then on July 31 of this year, it came close again: -135.3 degrees.

    The old record had been -128.6 degrees.

    Ice scientist Ted Scambos at the National Snow and Ice Data Center said the record low temperature is about 50 degrees colder than anything in Alaska.

    Scambos announced the cold facts at the American Geophysical Union scientific meeting in San Francisco Monday.

    How much longer will the Global Warming / Climate Change mythology continue?
