On the map for New Year's Day, 2018, when the temperature in Chicago hit six below zero, there was a deep blue blotch above the United States, indicating temperatures up to ten degrees below normal.

"In the lovely Midwest, windchill temperatures are reaching minus 60 degrees, the coldest ever recorded", he tweeted late Monday night.

"Even though it's cold where you are, that doesn't mean the globe isn't heating up. People can't last outside even for minutes", he tweeted this afternoon. "Over the past decade in the USA, we have broken high temperature records TWICE as often as cold temperature records".

"While the Brookings study projects that a range of negative changes will affect Southern states, it also sees a way to change Southerners" opinion on global warming.

If you cared about facts, you would know that climate change doesn't only cause temperatures to increase.

Report Saying "Unemployment At 45-Year High" Not Verified: NITI Aayog
Unemployment rate stands at 6.1% in India, according to an official survey done by the National Sample Survey Office (NSSO). The sanctity of the data was questioned by economists, as real GDP growth rates were drastically altered.

A simple answer: CNN puts it rather simply, "Weather is what happens today". Climate is long term.

"Frankly, it is a stretch to make that link", Kevin Trenberth, a climate scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, told The Daily Caller News Foundation on Tuesday. Senator Inhofe became one of the louder voices taking such a dismissive position in the early 2000s, and President Trump has seemed to have taken the baton with his recent Twitter missives.

"This is simply an extreme weather event and not representative of global scale temperature trends", said Northern Illinois University climate scientist Victor Gensini, who is in the midst of some of the worst subfreezing cold. His golf resort in Ireland intends to build two sea walls and cited the risks of global warming in one of its applications for the construction.

"As the poles are warming faster than the rest of the planet, that gradient weakens, allowing the cold air currents to dip south". NASA and NOAA climate data shows the 20 warmest years on record have all occurred since 1995.

The Earth's temperature has changed drastically in its 4.5 billion-year history, from the Huronian Ice Age that covered vast portions of the planet in ice for almost 300 million years, to a period about 50 million years ago, when scientists believe that palm trees and crocodiles were native above the Arctic Circle. But he's wrong. In fact, this arctic freeze supports claims that climate change is worsening. Like the great educator he is, Kimmel brought in some kids - Apollo, 8, and Kaitlynn, 10, - to explain to Trump the difference between climate change and weather, how the greenhouse effect works and why this is a big environmental issue that must not be ignored.
