Trump says East could use some 'global warming' this weekend

Trump has repeatedly expressed scepticism about climate change science, calling global warming a "hoax" created by the Chinese to damage American industry.

"In the East, it could be the COLDEST New Year's Eve on record", Trump tweeted Thursday.

There's the old saying about taking horses to the water. "Man, we could use a big fat dose of global warming!".

For instance, there is his use of the term "global warming".

Trump even got owned by Lisa Simpson, who once explained to her dad, Homer, that "Global warming can cause weather at both extremes - hot and cold".

In June, he announced that the United States would withdraw from the 2015 Paris Accord, which was initally agreed to by all 195 countries at the United Nations Climate Change Conference.

Trump says China-North Korea oil sale will prevent nuclear solution
In September, the Security Council put a cap of 2 million barrels a year on refined petroleum products exports to North Korea. It comes a day after Chinese customs data was revealed claiming Beijing exported no oil products to North Korea in November.

With bitterly cold temperatures gripping much of the US, President Trump has returned to a familiar theme: Mocking global warming.

It has come just days after a Trump golf course in Ireland was given permission to build a sea wall to manage erosion, which the original application revealed was partially in response to climate change and rising sea levels.

As usual, his loyal support base, which sometimes seems to swallow up anything and everything he puts out for them, greeted his latest tweet on the subject with its usual enthusiasm.

Incidentally, scientists predict that 2017 will be the second or third warmest year since record-keeping began.

Trump has tweeted similar, almost verbatim thoughts about his climate/weather confusion before. Climate refers to the conditions in general and over a long period of time, while weather refers to the short-term conditions. In the USA alone, about $400 billion worth of climate-related damage was caused during the year, and there are still three days to go.
