Cranking up the heat - under AG Jeff Sessions and in the Antarctic

Here are two “significant digits” from the FiveThirtyEight morning email both of which should be alarming.

2 meetings
Attorney General Jeff Sessions reportedly met with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak on two separate occasions last year while Sessions was assisting President Donald Trump with his presidential campaign. This contradicts what Sessions told the Senate during his confirmation hearing: that he did not meet with any Russian official during the campaign. [The Washington Post]

63.5° Fahrenheit
After verification, a March 2015 reading of 63.5 degrees Fahrenheit at an Antarctic research base has been confirmed as the hottest temperature ever measured on the continent. This strikes me as bad. [Yahoo]
