Global warming hasn't gone away, despite Trump's tweet

Late Monday, Trump tweeted about the brutal and risky wind chills hitting the middle of the country, and even asked global "waming" (sic) to "please come back fast".

While Dictionary.com tweeted explaining what global warming meant, United States government agency National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) posted a cartoon debunking Trump's argument.

"In the handsome Midwest, windchill temperatures are reaching minus 60 degrees, the coldest ever recorded", Trump tweeted.

The NOAA tweet appeared just hours after Trump tweeted his reaction to the series of winter weather systems slamming the Midwest with record-breaking cold. "We get it, winter is coming".

President Trump still doesn't seem to understand global warming - and he's having a hard time spelling it as well. Not only did the cute kids break it down as Kimmel promised, but they expressed how dire of a problem climate change is and how it will affect the younger generation.

This isn't a one-off comment by the president on weather and global warming.

It might seem counterintuitive, but the dreaded polar vortex now ravaging America was pushed forth by hot air.

Blumenfeld says it's important to distinguish between the short-term weather conditions and the long-term climate trends.

The US, along with many parts of northern and western Europe, is experiencing an unusual wave of cold weather.

While doing that, Trump mocked climate scientists by joking about global warming.

"These storms draw much of their intensity from the extreme contrast between cold air over land and warmer, wetter air from over the ocean", the NOAA writes.

"The National Academies may decide to respond quickly in a variety of situations, including when public statements are made that contain scientifically incorrect climate information and that have the potential to confuse or misinform", the document says.

"While the Brookings study projects that a range of negative changes will affect Southern states, it also sees a way to change Southerners" opinion on global warming.

The Chicago Times, Axios, The Washington Post and others echoed the theory that global warming was weakening the jet stream, allowing the "polar vortex" to meander south and bring record cold.

But Twitter, being Twitter, has not been easy on Trump for this post that adds to his ever-growing list of freakish tweets.
