„Winter storms don’t prove that global warming isn’t happening.“

U.S. government climate scientists took the unprecedented step of tweeting out a rebuttal to President Donald Trump’s recent tweets implying that winter storms and cold weather in the U.S. somehow disprove global warming.
“Large parts of the Country are suffering from tremendous amounts of snow and near record setting cold,” Trump tweeted out last week. “Wouldn’t be bad to have a little of that good old fashioned Global Warming right now!”
On Monday evening, he tweeted again: “What the hell is going on with Global Waming? [sic] Please come back fast, we need you!”
And now, with government staffers back to work after a 35-day-long partial government shutdown, it appears even the administration’s own scientists have had enough of this long-debunked denial of climate science.
