Here's Why the Crazy Cold Temperatures Prove Global Warming is Real

Here's a tip for President Trump: You may want to make sure the government is still shut down next time you fire off an inaccurate tweet about climate change.

Parts of Minnesota and North Dakota saw temperatures well below minus 30 this week, and nearby states even logged multiple weather-related deaths, USA Today reported Thursday.

"In coming days, expected to get even colder". Some users mocked Trump for incorrectly spelling "warming" as "waming". He has previously cited temporary cold temperatures in an effort to question global warming, which scientists and journalists have said is an inaccurate way of judging global climate change. Last year was the fourth-hottest year on record. What matters is what happens over the long term. Some forecasts show parts of IL and Minnesota could reach a wind chill of -60 degrees Fahrenheit - as cold as Antarctica.

"That's a lot warming, and most of that warming has been at night when it's coldest", says Blumenfeld.

"The global climate continues to change rapidly compared to the pace of the natural variations in climate that have occurred throughout Earth's history", the Fourth National Climate Assessment explains, which was released after Thanksgiving of 2018. One user said: "After waming I find a nice covfefe goes well with smocking", while referring to an earlier instance when Trump said "covfefe" in a tweet.

"It's occurring more rapidly than it was back in, say, the end of the ice age or something like that, where the change was more gradual", he said.

"There are some hints that it is linked to climate change, but I would emphasize that the jury is still out", he said.

Already in January, he tweeted that America would benefit from "a little of that good old fashioned Global Warming right now" amid forecasts of snow. As a result, he pulled the United States out of the Paris Climate Agreement, making us the only industrial nation not to participate.

"A cold snap in the teeth of global warming is no more unusual than a cool day in summer".

Although the Republican president's tweet was liked 51k times, it also left his critics irked and they slammed him for not knowing the difference between climate and weather.

Samenow: Since the 1980s, some politicians - mainly in the Republican Party - have expressed doubts about global warming and its seriousness.

He occasionally retweets posts about climate change actually existing, but also claims that it is not caused by humans.
