This comes after a number of record low New Year’s Eve weather forecasts hit the east coast:
If this isn’t a joke it should be. Average global temperatures are rising; so are sea levels. That’s not good for S. FL. It was a mistake to leave the #ParisAgreement & it’s misleading to cite the temperature on any given day to dismiss dangerous risks posed by CO2 emissions. https://t.co/N9gp545Tea— Carlos Curbelo (@carloslcurbelo) December 29, 2017
So far, the president’s comment has attracted backlash from a number of Democrats on Twitter, as well as other critics. And even The Weather Channel threw some shade at Trump by explaining the difference between weather and climate, a distinction the president failed to make on Thursday night.
In the East, it could be the COLDEST New Year’s Eve record. Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming that our Country, but not other countries, was going to pay TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS to protect against. Bundle up! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 29, 2017
