Thousands of people have used Twitter to explain global warming to President Trump after he appeared to misunderstand the subject in a tweet on Thursday morning.
“Brutal and Extended Cold Blast could shatter ALL RECORDS – Whatever happened to Global Warming?” wrote the President of the United States, on the same day the World Meteorological Organisation warned greenhouse gases had reached record highs.
His fellow Twitter users ensured he wouldn’t go looking for an answer, the Daily Mail reported.
British meteorologist Laura Tobin kindly explained how global warming can lead to weather extremes in some parts of the world.
She tweeted: “Global warming is a warming World.
“This leads to more extreme weather both hot & COLD! One of the coldest #thanksgiving ever recorded in NYC but it’s also [very] warm in the Arctic with no snow in Lapland.
“It’s also the same for very wet & very dry-Just look at the wildfires.”
