'Bundle Up!': Trump Mocks Paris Climate Accord as His Hometown Freezes

Adjust Comment Print

Trump has denied the existence of global warming for years, including failing to acknowledge when scientists instead began referring to it as "climate change" in order to better describe the issue.

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

There's the old saying about taking horses to the water.

Amid record-low temperatures across the U.S., President Trump in a tweet Thursday suggested the eastern part of the country could benefit from global warming, adding the U.S. -but not other countries- would have paid trillions to battle rising temperatures. Soon after being sworn in, the president also asked the Environmental Protection Agency to remove a section from its website that talked about global warming and climate change. Individual weather events, like when it's unusually cold, do not disprove global warming. The accord set goals for slowing the rate of alleged climate change. In June 2017, Trump chose to pull the country out from the single-most ambitious global climate accord to date, citing, like he did Thursday, the money being spent by the US on fighting climate change. But there were also those who tried to show Trump the folly of his reasoning. Daily or weekly weather patterns "say nothing about longer term climate change", said J. Marshall Shepherd, director of the atmospheric sciences program at the University of Georgia and a former president of the American Meteorological Society.

But according to experts, 2017 is still on track to be one of the hottest years recorded globally.

Trump's tweets have caused an online backlash, with many Twitter users pointing out the difference between weather and climate. This year's devastating hurricanes and wildfires, which could cost the USA hundreds of billions of dollars, have also been exacerbated by climate change.
