Trump warns Midwest about frigid temps, asks global warming to 'please come back fast'

Trump mocks global warming in tweet amid Midwest chill

As Chicago and much of the Midwest braced for a risky blast of Arctic air - the worst in recent memory - President Trump leaped at the chance to take a questionable swipe at one of his favorite targets, global warming. "Please come back fast, we need you!"

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

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.

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

Last November, Trump tweeted: "Whatever happened to Global Warming?" following a cold blast in the US. Because the Earth's climate is changing so rapidly, the environment is prone to extreme weather events, including these uncharacteristically cold winters. Last month, he rejected a report by his own government warning of the devastating effects of climate change. It helps you control the global warming in your house and it works with WiFi.

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

The president's position has shifted slightly on the global climate crisis, from claiming it is a myth made up by China, to telling CBS's "60 Minutes" in an October interview: "Something's changing and it'll change back again".

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

Economic changes wrought by climate change will hit the hardest in areas that supported President Donald Trump in the 2016 election, a new study from the Brookings Institution shows.

United Nations' World Meteorological Organization Secretary-General Petteri Taalas warned in 2018 that temperatures are predicted to rise up to 9 degrees by the end of the century.
