The Real Science Behind Trump's Climate Change Tweet

County-by-county breakdown of how climate change will play out economically  Brookings Institute

Keeping up with his penchant for simply creating words, US President Donald Trump has asked global "waming" to make a return for "beautiful Midwest" in the country, which is now experiencing chilly weather conditions due to a polar vortex. Some users mocked Trump for incorrectly spelling "warming" as "waming".

"In the attractive Midwest, windchill temperatures are reaching minus 60 degrees, the coldest ever recorded. In coming days, expected to get even colder", Trump tweeted Monday evening. "People can't last outside even for minutes", he tweeted. His tweet late Monday wondering "What the hell is going on with Global Warming" drew a quick response from Wisconsin Rep. Mark Pocan.

One of his first actions as president was to announce the withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement, a global agreement to mitigate climate change.

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.

The president said the same thing back in November when it was cold. But, as cold as it is, all this talk of global warming is not overblown.

As far as how it affects people, Trump's own administration released a scientific report last year saying that while human-caused climate change will reduce cold weather deaths "in 49 large cities in the United States, changes in extreme hot and extreme cold temperatures are projected to result in more than 9,000 additional premature deaths per year" by the end of this century if greenhouse gas emissions continue to rise at recent rates.

Weather refers to the atmospheric conditions at a particular place and time.

Hundreds of unverified accounts have also responded to each of these tweets and Schultz's announcement by calling for a boycott. Now I have never been a partisan guy - and it's no secret that I looked at an independent bid in the past.

The Climate Reality Project, launched by former Vice President Al Gore, tweeted: "Yes, it's cold".

"Weather isn't climate. They teach this in 5th grade science", wrote one person.

"There he goes again", tweeted New York Times climate reporter Henry Fountain.

"In the East, it could be the COLDEST New Year's Eve on record".

"We will never again see a President like this".

"It is 'Not Where You Live Warming, ' it is Global Warming", Shepherd told CNN.

Despite Trump's claims, 2018 was among the hottest on record across the globe and the planet is expected to get hotter according to experts.
