Extreme cold wave? Donald Trump jokes that global warming may help

Donald Trump has caused anger after claiming the east coast of the United States could use a bit of global warming because of its current cold spell. Individual weather events, like when it's unusually cold, do not disprove global warming.

The president's tweets are in keeping with his previous statements about climate change.

In the latest display of his best words, Trump tweeted Thursday alluding to how the cold wave on the East Coast was proof that global warming was not real.

He announced earlier this year his intention to pull out of the landmark Paris climate agreement aimed at curbing greenhouse gas production.

One of the biggest problems with Trump referring to the weather in one specific place or region at a specific time as his reason for denying climate change is that, that reason is anecdotal and isn't an actual reflection of larger patterns that require more than just the individual experience of one person to formulate.

In fact, climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe just explained this week why the record snowfall in the lakefront city of Erie, Pa. could be explained by warmer temperatures increasing the risk of lake-effect snow.

The past three years are believed to be the hottest on record.

The tweet certainly falls in line with his administration's pro-energy, anti-climate agenda.

Environmental Protection Agency chief Scott Pruitt similarly has positioned himself as a climate change skeptic, denying that carbon-dioxide emissions have affected the climate.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks to the media during a meeting with congressional leadership in the Roosevelt Room at the White House on November 28, 2017 in Washington, DC.

In 2015, he wrote: "It's really cold outside, they are calling it a major freeze, weeks ahead of normal".
