"Please come back fast, we need you".
Late Monday, Trump tweeted about the brutal and risky wind chills hitting the middle of the country, and even asked global "waming" (sic) to "please come back fast".
"In the handsome Midwest, windchill temperatures are reaching minus 60 degrees, the coldest ever recorded", Trump said. It may hit -20°F in the midwest this week, but over the long term, the average temperature is expected to rise, as is the frequency of days with extreme high temperatures.
In response to an inquiry from ABC News, however, NOAA's Director of Public Affairs Monica Allen disputed that the tweet was meant to send a message to Trump. According to almost every scientist, these extreme weather conditions are an effect of global climate change.
"As to whether or not it's man-made and whether or not the effects that you're talking about are there, I don't see it", he added.
United States President Donald Trump has asked "Global Waming" to make a return for "beautiful Midwest" in the country. I don't think it's a hoax. "Something's changing, and it'll change back again", Trump told CBS's 60 Minutes at the time.
By Wednesday, dangerously cold wind chills caused by a displaced polar vortex are expected to drop temperatures in the Midwest near negative 30F and the wind chill could be as low as negative 50F or 60F - the lowest they've been in more than two decades, Weather.com reported.
"With the blast of severe winter weather affecting the USA, we often get asked about the relationship between cold weather and climate change", Allen said.
In response to his tweet, several users mocked the president for his incorrect words and misunderstanding of climate change versus weather. There is even a page on the NASA website providing evidence and consensus on the reality of climate change.
In December 2017, the president suggested that global warming doesn't exist - but, once again, thought it could help against the cold.
