As Chicago braced for risky cold, Trump joked about global warming

Trump mocks global warming in tweet amid Midwest chill

Keeping up with his penchant for simply creating words, US President Donald Trump has asked global "waming" to make a return for "beautiful Midwest" in the country, which is now experiencing chilly weather conditions due to a polar vortex.

These distinctions help explain why many scientists and scientific organizations like NASA refer to "climate change" rather than "global warming".

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. "In coming days, expected to get even colder", Trump wrote on Twitter Monday night. "People can't last outside even for minutes", he tweeted. His tweet late Monday wondering "What the hell is going on with Global Warming" drew a quick response from Wisconsin Rep. Mark Pocan. "Please come back fast, we need you!", Trump tweeted. Numerous states that are likely to see disproportionately negative effects in the coming years are some that supported Mr. Trump in 2016, like Florida and Texas, as well as others in the Southeast, which may sustain increased coastal damage because of more powerful storms, according to a new report by the Brookings Institute.

To understand why, you have to first know the difference between weather and climate.

But Twitter, being Twitter, has not been easy on Trump for this post that adds to his ever-growing list of freakish tweets.

WWE RAW: Becky Lynch to face Ronda Rousey at Wrestlemania
An Ireland bar full of Lynch supporters went nuts when they watched the SmackDown star win the contest. Former WWE Champion Dean Ambrose will walk away from the promotion after WrestleMania 35 (7 April).

However, the extremely cold weather was expected to last a few days. "And in fact, "Global Waming" is making these extreme cold outbreaks more rare, exactly as we expected", said Grist staff writer Eric Holthaus.

According to National Geographic, global warming is defined as the gradual increase of the Earth's atmospheric temperature mostly due to the omission of heat-trapping greenhouse gases.

The fact we are seeing record cold does not contradict climate research.

The president faced severe criticism online after he posted the tweet.

Parts of the United States are indeed facing some of the coldest temperatures the country's seen in a generation.
