Just think... when the next probably-global-warming-induced ice age does come, everyone's last words before freezing to death will be: "I told you so!"
United States Donald Trump on Tuesday attempted to mock global warming, calling for it to "come back fast" as temperatures touched minus 60 degrees in Midwest. The wind chill could be unbearable as a brutal jet stream moves through the area.
"In the attractive Midwest, windchill temperatures are reaching minus 60 degrees, the coldest ever recorded", the president tweeted. "In coming days, expected to get even colder", the President wrote Monday night.
In response to an inquiry from ABC News, however, NOAA's Director of Public Affairs Monica Allen disputed that the tweet was meant to send a message to Trump.
Twitter users, assuming "waming" for "warming", slammed the President, with one Twitter user stating, "Are you really this ignorant about climate change?". Numerous states that are likely to see disproportionately negative effects in the coming years are some that supported Mr. Trump in 2016, like Florida and Texas, as well as others in the Southeast, which may sustain increased coastal damage because of more powerful storms, according to a new report by the Brookings Institute.
Trump has always denied that there is something called climate change of global warming and also made the U.S. pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement in 2017, months after entering the White House.
To understand why, you have to first know the difference between weather and climate.
As areas in the Midwest experience record-low temperatures this week, Donald Trump's latest misstatement about climate change has been widely mocked by Twitter users.
Temperatures are expected to rise into the 40s and 50s throughout the Midwest over the weekend, the Weather Channel said.
The fact we are seeing record cold does not contradict climate research.
Today, climate change is commonly used as a term to describe the effects of global warming that have occurred as a result of human activity following the industrial revolution in the 18th century.
In December 2017, the president suggested that global warming doesn't exist - but, once again, thought it could help against the cold.
