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. He also spelled global warming as "Global Waming" giving enough hint that his past goofups with spellings haven't yet taught him a lesson.
Trump has long dismissed global warming, and in late November said he wasn't among the "believers" who see climate change as a pressing problem.
"In the handsome Midwest, windchill temperatures are reaching minus 60 degrees, the coldest ever recorded", the president tweeted.
By Wednesday, dangerously cold wind chills caused by a displaced polar vortex are expected to drop temperatures in the Midwest near negative 30F and the wind chill could be as low as negative 50F or 60F - the lowest they've been in more than two decades, Weather.com reported. "People can't last outside even for minutes. Please come back fast, we need you!", Trump tweeted. In coming days, expected to get even colder.
Yellow weather warning issued for snow and ice
Snow has already begun to fall in the highest parts of Devon with wintry showers across the Princetown area since midnight. However, significant accumulations of snow are not expected to be widespread at lower levels.
Forecasters have said that the most unsafe weather is yet to come, warning of frigidly low temperatures that the region hasn't seen in a quarter century.
"Dear sir, You, once again, confuse weather and climate". Chris Gloninger, a meteorologist from NBC10 Boston, pointed out in a pair of tweets that climate and weather are not synonymous, and "climate change means EXTREME weather, which includes record cold weather as well". This is in keeping with the US President's track record on the matter.
The public seems to be accepting the scientific view over Trump's.
