A federal agency just publicly embarrassed Trump with scathing response to his winter storm tweets

A common misconception about the planet’s climate crisis stems from the references early in the scientific community’s growing understanding of the changes in the Earth’s weather patterns as “global warming.”

While the term accurately describes the overall rise in average temperatures worldwide, unfortunately now every time winter weather goes to extremes, meteorologically ignorant responses like the one President Trump tweeted last night confuse the effects of climate change with the expectation that they’ll be able to wear shorts in January outside of the tropics.

The folks manning the Twitter feed of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s climate division (NOAA) — the federal scientific agency that focuses on the conditions of the oceans, major waterways, and the atmosphere — saw President Trump making the same foolish assumption that other climate change deniers assert as they attempt to stymie regulations that could slow the rapid environmental decline that threatens to make our modern lifestyles inconceivable for generations to come.

They responded with a tweet of their own that provided our reading-averse president with a simple graphic representation of the climate phenomenon that has caused the record low temperatures and fierce winter storms that have plagued much of the Northern United States this winter.

Hopefully, even President Trump will be able to grasp the concept that higher average global temperatures raise the level of heat in the world’s oceans, leading to more atmospheric moisture and, consequently, bigger winter storms.

While it’s doubtful that scientific facts will sway the opinion of a president typically motivated by political expediency and enormous sums of cash, perhaps the dedicated scientists at the NOAA climate division can educate enough of the ill-informed populace who are being gaslighted by profiteering climate change deniers to start to put political pressure on the Trump administration to rejoin the Paris Climate accord and begin to take the environmental crisis we are facing as seriously as it deserves.
