Trump mocks global warming in tweet amid Midwest chill

"People can't last outside even for minutes", he tweeted.

Citing the awful cold that has gripped the Midwest, Trump taunted the phenomenon of global warming asking it to "come back fast" in his tweet.

- Kristina Womp-Wong ❄️ (@mskristinawong) January 29, 2019It wasn't even that long ago when Trump claimed that climate change didn't exist because it was cold outside in Washington, DC.

If you cared about facts, you would know that climate change doesn't only cause temperatures to increase.

In December 2017, the president suggested that global warming doesn't exist - but, once again, thought it could help against the cold.

Some who responded to Trump's Monday night tweet simply laid out the facts. Amid freezing temperatures past year, Trump tweeted: "Brutal and Extended Cold Blast could shatter ALL RECORDS - Whatever happened to Global Warming?"

"No, these aren't the coldest temperatures ever recorded in the Midwest".

The American Meteorological Society recently published a paper suggesting climate change can splinter the polar vortex - a mass of cold winds above the Arctic Circle - and send frigid air into the United States during the winter. "I'm a meteorologist, and we have proof of this".

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

The bottom line, as the post details, is that "even though our planet is warming, and record warm days far outnumber record cold ones, we still see periods of colder weather from time to time".

The study's authors point out that while climate change is a major issue for people in blue states, the heaviest toll will be paid by people in red states, which the authors argue could be used to broker political compromise.
