Why is South Pole far more colder than North Pole?
- Anonymous2 days ago
Because North is up, and therefore closer to the sun. Contrast with South, which, as any globe or map will show you, is down- and therefore further away from the sky, and, of course, further away from the sun.
You're welcome. Don't thank me- thank science for providing us with this answer.

Probably because its further from the sun

Because it’s a giant ice block where nobody is allowed but top scientists. Some even say there’s something top secret going on there. Which is highly unlikely considering you have to wear 5 layers of clothes just to survive. There is a Chilean military base there where there is a town of about 50 people. Also there was a hole that appeared in the middle of Antarctica the size of Maryland. Some call it the gateway to hell which is highly unlikely because the gateway to hell is actually in Kansas.

Nominal 1.4 degree average is not usually considered a far difference.
North pole is technically s floating continent, where Antarctica has earth tectonic.
Takes more energy to heat and cool the north pole.
The book 'Nautilus 90 north" is about the secret mission of the nautilus under the north pole.

Because it's on land. More energy is needed to change the temperature of water than rock, and water also circulates, so the North Pole is relatively warmer.

Because heat rises.

Because it is a Continent covered in thick ice surrounded by the Southern Ocean on all sides
This water reflects any heat from the Sun and it flows very freely as the only landmass that is close is South America with Tierra del Fuego
Its escape valve is up along the South American East Coast with the cold Humbold Current
This is what makes the Atacama Desert so cold too
Africa Australia and everywhere else in the Southern Hemisphere are vast distances from Antarctica
The southern current also drives the Pacific Gyer
Whereas the Dogleg shape of the Altantic Makes two Main circular Currents, North and South
Looking up to the bottom of the Globe, you will see more blue because it is covered by oceans
Whereas the Arctic is Surrounded by land which absorbs heat
That is the main reason

It is surrounded by water which circulates.
