Amid the below freezing temperatures in the Midwest, President Trump took to Twitter to express his feelings.

He claimed that ‘we need’ global warming to counter the freezing temperatures. Trump was met with people blasting him about his differentiation between climate and weather.

According to NASA, climate is, ‘the description of the long-term pattern of weather in a particular area,’ while weather, ‘is basically the way the atmosphere is behaving, mainly with respect to its effects upon life and human activities.’ Basically, climate is the average weather, while weather is just the current state of our surroundings. One is on a shorter scale and the other one is on a broader one.

Trump used the term, “global warming” in reference to climate change, implying that we can’t be having climate change since the weather is cold. However, the National Geographic says that “Climate change encompasses not only rising average temperatures but also extreme weather events, shifting wildlife populations and habitats, rising seas, and a range of other impacts. All of those changes are emerging as humans continue to add heat-trapping greenhouse gases to the atmosphere, changing the rhythms of climate that all living things have come to rely on.” This means that climate change is not only the cause of global warming but also the extreme weather conditions that we are currently experiencing.

Furthermore, many people pointed out Trump’s incorrect spelling of warming as ‘waming.’

Twitter users replied with a variety of comments.
