Trump Cites Winter Storms To Once Again Suggest Global Warming Could Be A Good Thing

0



President Trump on Sunday suggested global warming could be a good thing as a massive snowstorm dumped several inches of snow across the Midwest and swaths of the Northeast United States.

“Be careful and try staying in your house,” Trump wrote on Twitter Sunday morning. “Large parts of the Country are suffering from tremendous amounts of snow and near record setting cold. Amazing how big this system is. Wouldn’t be bad to have a little of that good old fashioned Global Warming right now!”

Meanwhile, Australia is having an unusually hot summer as the heatwave continues to break records. This is true for night-time lows as well as daytime highs.

Trump has repeatedly cast doubt on the existence and effects of climate change and regularly cited significant winter storms to mock the concept of global warming.

In late November, he suggested record cold weather meant global warming isn’t real. “Brutal and Extended Cold Blast could shatter ALL RECORDS,” he wrote. “Whatever happened to Global Warming?”

He had made a similar argument in late 2017, saying that “perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming” because it could be the “COLDEST New Year’s Eve on record.”


In 2012, he claimed global warming was “created by and for the Chinese” to make “U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.” He later said that was a “joke.”
