Trump mocks global warming in tweet amid Midwest chill

Trump mocks global warming in tweet amid Midwest chill

The wind chill could be unbearable as a brutal jet stream moves through the area.

"In the lovely Midwest, windchill temperatures are reaching minus 60 degrees, the coldest ever recorded", Trump began his tweet on Monday evening. It may hit -20°F in the midwest this week, but over the long term, the average temperature is expected to rise, as is the frequency of days with extreme high temperatures. "People can't last outside even for minutes", he tweeted this afternoon. His tweet late Monday wondering "What the hell is going on with Global Warming" drew a quick response from Wisconsin Rep. Mark Pocan. "Please come back fast, we need you!"

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.

"As to whether or not it's man-made and whether or not the effects that you're talking about are there, I don't see it", he added. There is a huge difference between weather and climate that Trump just doesnt understand or intentionally misleads people. "He's consistent, give him that", noted John Schwartz, also of the Times, linking to an article from December of 2017 titled, "It's Cold Outside".

Last November, Trump tweeted: "Whatever happened to Global Warming?" following a cold blast in the US.

The statement was immediately bashed on the internet, with numerous social media users noting the president's misspelling of "global warming".

Finally, the Land Cruiser Heritage Edition features all-weather floor mats and cargo liner, so it's ready to get out and have fun. The Americans don't get the 1VD-FTE twin-turbo diesel V8 which accounts for more than 98 per cent of Land Cruiser sales here.

"I think something's happening".

The American Meteorological Society recently published a paper suggesting climate change can splinter the polar vortex - a mass of cold winds above the Arctic Circle - and send frigid air into the United States during the winter.

"In the East, it could be the COLDEST New Year's Eve on record".

"No, these aren't the coldest temperatures ever recorded in the Midwest". 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".

"In a warming world, you're still going to have unusually hot and unusually cold events happening in a particular part of the world", said Berkeley Earth climate scientist Zeke Hausfather. We expect that we will far into the future.
