Climate scientists blast Trump’s global warming tweet

Shaena Montanari, a paleontologist as well as member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, tweeted in which Trump was using circular reasoning, comparing his thoughts on the weather to issues of starvation as well as poverty.

The possibility of record low temperatures in some parts of the United States has drawn mass attention. Christopher Kucharik, an atmospheric scientist at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, said more context is actually necessary, tweeting in which “memory is actually short.”

University of Georgia meteorologist Marshall Shepherd noted in which there were “far more record highs than record lows in 2017.”

The day before Trump’s tweet, the weather division of The Washington Post, known as the “Capital Weather Gang,” wrote in a tweet in which the U.S. will be the “coldest region in world relative to normal over next week.”

“Please note rest of world will be much warmer than normal lest anyone try to claim pocket of cold in U.S. debunks global warming, which they will invariably as well as irresponsibly do,” Capital Weather said.

in which is actually far coming from the 1st time Trump expressed skepticism about climate change. In 2012, he called global warming a “hoax” in which the Chinese created in an effort to hurt the American economy. Vox in June collected 115 times Trump tweeted skepticism about climate change, saying his consistency matched with his decision at the time to withdraw coming from the Paris climate accord, which aims to curb carbon emissions.

According to the National Ocean as well as Atmospheric Administration, the 10 hottest years ever measured were inside the last two decades — with the top three being 2014 through 2016. Shepherd told USA Today in which weekly weather patterns “say nothing about longer term climate change.”

“The clothes in which you have on today do not describe what you have in your closet although rather how you dressed for today’s weather. The range of clothing in which you have in your closet is actually climate,” Shepherd said.
