"People can't last outside even for minutes", he tweeted. The globe is certainly warming, but the phrase doesn't fully reflect the changes caused by higher temperatures, which can result in more extreme weather events of many varieties during all seasons. What the hell is going on with Global Warming? "Please come back fast, we need you!", Trump tweeted.
Trump's tweets assume significance in light of his non-committal attitude when it comes to global warming.
"Dear sir, You, once again, confuse weather and climate".
The Earth as a whole - and it is global warming, not USA warming - on Tuesday is 0.54 degrees (0.3 degrees Celsius) warmer than the 1979 to 2000 average and 1.6 degrees warmer than it was on average about 100 years ago, according to data from the University of Maine's Climate Reanalyzer and NASA.
Last November, Trump tweeted: "Whatever happened to Global Warming?" following a cold blast in the US.
Here's how NASA explains it: Weather is the condition in the atmosphere are over a short period of time.
"Greetings, The rest of the world", he replied, followed by a map showing current world temperatures.
Trump is cherry picking cold weather to ignore the larger picture of a warming planet, said John Cook, a professor of climate change communications at George Mason University. "Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming that our Country, but not other countries, was going to pay TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS to protect against", Trump wrote on Twitter.
The Earth's temperature has changed drastically in its 4.5 billion-year history, from the Huronian Ice Age that covered vast portions of the planet in ice for almost 300 million years, to a period about 50 million years ago, when scientists believe that palm trees and crocodiles were native above the Arctic Circle.
The study's authors point out that while climate change is a major issue for people in blue states, the heaviest toll will be paid by people in red states, which the authors argue could be used to broker political compromise.
So that's why global warming is still a thing, even when it seems like the winter weather reigns supreme.
