The President came in for a lot of criticism for pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord so his tweet mocking Global Warming as the East Coast freezes is typical Trump!
The President mocked the science behind climate change in a tweet Thursday night that claimed the frigid East Coast could actually use more global warming.
This from the New York Post
“In the East, it could be the COLDEST New Year’s Eve on record,” Trump noted about the freezing temperatures in New York and other cities.
“Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming that our Country, but not other countries, was going to pay TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS to protect against. Bundle up!”
The weather forecasts for New York City have temperatures expected to be below freezing into the New Year.
Also in the tweet, the president was apparently referring to the non-binding Paris Accord — which his administration said the US was pulling out of earlier this year.
Trump’s claim that the agreement will cost “TRILLIONS” apparently comes from a conservative Heritage Foundation. Their estimate was $2.5 trillion over a 20-year period.
However, another estimate called the cost “modest” and added that delaying any action would actually cost the US more money in the long run.
