U.S. President Trump mocked climate change advocates Wednesday as U.S. cities braced for their coldest Thanksgiving on record.
“Brutal and Extended Cold Blast could shatter ALL RECORDS – Whatever happened to Global Warming?” Trump tweeted.
With temperatures running up to 30 degrees below normal, Providence, RI; Buffalo, NY, Rochester, NY; New York City, Hartford, CT; Burlington, VT; and Bangor, ME, were just a few of the cities concerned that they were about to experience their coldest Thanksgiving on record.
“A severe and prolonged wave of cold promises to break all records. What happened to global warming?” Trump tweeted.
MSN tried to pooh-pooh Trumps tweets:
“Many scientists argue that despite cold winters, there is still a trend of warming temperatures recorded around the planet,” MSN maintained.
Even TASS jumped onto the pooh-pooh bandwagon.
“The strong cold snap in the north-east of the country “is not typical for this time,” TASS reported.
Well, yeah, I guess record-breaking cold might not be considered ‘typical.”
