As Chicago braced for unsafe cold, Trump joked about global warming

Trump mocks global warming in tweet amid Midwest chill

Just like the Arctic air invading parts of the US because of wandering pieces of the polar vortex, Earth's warmth appears a bit temporarily displaced.

These distinctions help explain why many scientists and scientific organizations like NASA refer to "climate change" rather than "global warming".

In the tweet, Trump said "In the attractive Midwest, windchill temperatures are reaching minus 60 degrees, the coldest ever recorded. In coming days, expected to get even colder", Trump wrote. "People can't last outside even for minutes", he tweeted. What the hell is going on with Global [Warming]? "Please come back fast, we need you!", Trump tweeted.

The fact we are seeing record cold does not contradict climate research.

Arctic Air Brings Dangerous Wind Chill Temperatures
The United States will feel the brunt of an all-out Arctic assult as dangerously cold temperatures settle in next week. The wind chill values were between 20 and 25 negative degrees Fahrenheit. "1-2" of snow is likely by Saturday morning.

This is not the first time Trump has demonstrated he can't grasp the concept of global warming or how it works.

Forecasters have said that the most risky weather is yet to come, warning of frigidly low temperatures that the region hasn't seen in a quarter century. "The exact opposite is happening in Australia right now". He noted the record heat now in Australia. Adelaide last week was 115.9 degrees (46.6 Celsius), setting the record for the highest temperature ever set by a major Australian city.

Donald Trump's recent tweet adds to the weird things he has already said about global warming.

"This myth is like arguing that nighttime proves the sun doesn't exist", Cook said. 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". "The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make USA manufacturing non-competitive", Trump had tweeted in 2012. That puts Trump either among the 19 percent who are unsure if climate change is occurring, or the 9 percent who flatly deny it. Weather is like mood, which is fleeting. Climate is what happens over the long run. And global warming may be playing a direct role in this: there is a theory that as areas near the North Pole warm more than two times faster than the rest of the globe, it weakens the polar vortex, displacing cold air masses southward into Europe, Asia and the United States.
