President Trump Takes Poke at Climate Change

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump is concerned over “Global Waming”. Truth is the President is taking a shot at Climate Change, maybe even trying to be funny. However, many people are taking President Donald Trump to task for his typo.

Taking to Twitter, President Trump tweeted, “In the beautiful Midwest, windchill temperatures are reaching minus 60 degrees, the coldest ever recorded. In coming days, expected to get even colder. People can’t last outside even for minutes. What the hell is going on with Global Waming? Please come back fast, we need you!”

A read of the comments from many of the people responding is a really easy way to see how the political spectrum in the United States is very divided. People can’t even agree it is really cold out there.

Not to tease the President over a typo, as the temperatures across the American Midwest are brutally cold. What is happening is the Polar Vortex which has Arctic weather travelling far to the south.

Across the midwest and northern states, windchill warnings are out:

WIND CHILL WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL NOON CST THURSDAY…
…WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY WILL EXPIRE AT 6 PM CST THIS EVENING…

* WHAT…Dangerously cold wind chills as low as 65 below zero.

* WHERE…Portions of northwest and west central Minnesota and
northeast and southeast North Dakota.

* WHEN…For the Wind Chill Warning, until noon CST Thursday.
For the Winter Weather Advisory, until 6 PM CST this evening.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS…The dangerously cold wind chills could
cause frostbite on exposed skin in as little as 5 minutes.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS…

A Wind Chill Warning means the combination of very cold air and
the wind will create dangerously low wind chill values. Frostbite
can occur quickly and even hypothermia or death if precautions
are not taken.

The report from NOAA states, “Extremely cold air comes every winter in at least part of the country and affects millions of people across the United States. The Arctic air, with brisk winds, can lead to dangerously cold wind chill values. People exposed to extreme cold are susceptible to frostbite in a matter of minutes. Areas most prone to frostbite are uncovered skin and the extremities, such as hands and feet. Hypothermia is another threat during extreme cold. Hypothermia occurs when the body loses heat faster than it can produce”.
