President Trump claims East Coast freeze disproves global warming

The Trump White House Doesn’t Care About

President Donald Trump shared his thoughts on the subject Thursday night on Twitter. With the North East facing a cold front as the year comes to a close, Trump took to #Twitter on December 28 to mock those who push the science of climate change.

"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", he said.

Trump says the east coast of the USA could "use a little bit of that good old Global Warming" as it faces its coldest New Year's Eve on record - appearing to either misunderstand or ignore the scientific evidence on climate change. New Year's Eve 1917 was just 1 degree, while temperatures hit a balmy 11 degrees in 1962.

Record-low freezing temperatures have been taking over much of North America recently, and if you live just about anywhere in the eastern half of the USA, you're well aware of this.

This, of course, to say nothing of the fact that global warming impacts the climate, not the weather. In 2016, he tweeted from the West Coast, "Ice storm rolls from Texas to Tennessee - I'm in Los Angeles and it's freezing".

Trump's tweets have caused an online backlash, with many Twitter users pointing out the difference between weather and climate. "Global warming is a total, and very expensive, hoax!" "However, climate change continues to shift the odds towards more periods of warmer weather and less so for colder weather", Zack Labe, a doctoral candidate studying Earth systems science at the University of California, Irvine, told USA TODAY. "Climate is all about long-term trends". This also isn't the first time he's said global warming would be welcomed.
