Trump mocks global warming in tweet amid Midwest chill

Trump mocks global warming in tweet amid Midwest chill

But scientific reports issued by the Trump administration and outside climate scientists contradict Trump's suggestion that global warming can't exist if it's cold outside.

"In the attractive Midwest, windchill temperatures are reaching minus 60 degrees, the coldest ever recorded", Trump said. In coming days, expected to get even colder. "People can't last outside even for minutes", he tweeted. He also spelled global warming as "Global Waming" giving enough hint that his past goofups with spellings haven't yet taught him a lesson. "Please come back fast, we need you!", Trump tweeted.

One of his first actions as president was to announce the withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement, a global agreement to mitigate climate change.

"And in fact, "Global Waming" is making these extreme cold outbreaks more rare, exactly as we expected", said Grist staff writer Eric Holthaus.

Wisconsin congressman Mark Pocan, whose state will experience freezing temperatures this week, immediately slammed Trump as a "moron" for not understanding why there could be cold temperatures amid global warming.

Trump's tweets assume significance in light of his non-committal attitude when it comes to global warming.

Weather refers to the atmospheric conditions at a particular place and time.

However, the extremely cold weather was expected to last a few days.

In response to his tweet, several users mocked the president for his incorrect words and misunderstanding of climate change versus weather.

Taking the sunny view that Trump-loving areas in line for rising seas, brutal droughts, and other climate havoc are rational actors who might be convinced to support progressive notions of how to mitigate the dangers, the authors write that "the current gridlock might not be as permanent as it now seems".

THE FACTS: While the Midwest is in the grip of a chill that's likely to set records, Earth is still considerably warmer than it was 30 years ago and especially 100 years ago. In fact, the National Climate Assessment, a landmark report released past year following a collaboration between more than a dozen federal agencies, shows that those trends are "higher for the Midwest than in any other region of the United States".
