The day after President Trump published a tweeting suggesting that the extreme low temperatures in the Midwest question the existence of global warming, the climate service for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) cartoon explaining the warming of the oceans leads to more extreme winter conditions.
"In the beautiful Middle West, wind temperatures reach the minus 60 degrees, the coldest ever recorded, and are expected to be even colder in the coming days, last outside even minutes." What the hell is going on with Global Waming [SIC] Please come back quickly we need you Mr. Trump writes on Twitter
Predictions say that millions of people in the Medium and Big Lakes will see the wind shakingthis week because of the polar vortex And global warming can play a direct role in this: there is a theory that as the regions near the North Pole are warming more than twice as fast as the rest of the globe, it weakens the polar vortex, shifting the cold air
"Winter storms do not prove that global warming is not happening," said NOAA tweak, linking to a Climate.gov article from 201
In a statement to CBS News, NOAA said : Tvit was not made in response to Mr Trump, but it was "something NOAA regularly puts when we get extraordinary cold like the one we are in now."
Mr. Trump has repeatedly claimed that global warming in Twitter is a "scam". In 2012 he published global warming, created by "and by the Chinese to make US production uncompetitive." Although he later says he is kidding, he continues to talk about climate change as a fraud during the presidential campaign. One of his first actions as president was to declare the withdrawal from the global agreement on climate change mitigation.
However, global climate change – climate warming due to human activities – has been accepted almost universally by scientists. There is even a page on the NASA website that provides evidence and consensus on the reality of climate change. Many countries that are likely to see disproportionately negative consequences in the coming years are some who supported Mr Trump in 2016, such as Florida and Texas, as well as others in Southeast Europe that can sustain increased coastal damage due to Stronger Storms According to a new report by the Brookings Institute
the report found that "climate-induced deaths will damage the southwest as coastal storms and sea level problems are in the South East, Florida and the Gulf Coast."
Still, some pro-democratic countries can actually see the economic benefit of global warming, with a longer growing season, which increases yields from agriculture, says the report.
