How can it be so cold if there's global warming?

The Earth as a whole - and it is global warming, not US 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.

The Midwest has been experiencing chilly weather conditions due to a polar vortex.

Once again, Trump is confusing weather with climate - the temperature outside in a given place at a given time says nothing about global temperature trends.

He tweeted, "In the attractive Midwest, windchill temperatures are reaching minus 60 degrees, the coldest ever recorded". In coming days, expected to get even colder.

CNN has also previously noted that, according to climate scientists, linking temperatures in a certain location to the existence of global warming is an entirely inaccurate way to view global warming. "People can't last outside even for minutes", he tweeted.

Donald Trump continues to flaunt his complete inability to grasp the concept of global warming.

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

Mr. Trump has repeatedly claimed on Twitter that global warming is a "hoax". Numerous states that are likely to see disproportionately negative effects in the coming years are some that supported Mr. Trump in 2016, like Florida and Texas, as well as others in the Southeast, which may sustain increased coastal damage because of more powerful storms, according to a new report by the Brookings Institute.

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. In fact, the National Climate Assessment, a landmark report released a year ago following a collaboration between more than a dozen federal agencies, shows that those trends are "higher for the Midwest than in any other region of the United States".

The report found that "climate-caused deaths will hurt the Southwest, as coastal storms and sea-level issues batter the Southeast, Florida, and the Gulf Coast".

"Only a moron would not understand global warming causes huge temperature swings", Pocan said.
