I wonder, have the Trump haters considered that he’s just doing this to mess with them? That he knows they will lose their collective minds, and that he and the folks around him are getting a good laugh? And that his tweets cause the Credentialed #Resist Media to chase rabbits down holes while Trump and his folks go off and do things that the media misses during that time?
In the East, it could be the COLDEST New Year’s Eve on record. 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!

This has causes all sorts of blue check mark folks to try and explain the difference between weather and climate, forgetting that they will themselves blame every weather event on ‘climate change’. Many immediately put up missives at mainstream outlets, such as this front page one at the Washington Post, which includes
But a single cold streak does not prove climate change is fake. Man-made global warming, as the name suggests, refers to the steady rise of average temperature of Earth’s climate system because of the buildup of heat-trapping gases in the atmosphere. Indeed, at the moment much of the rest of world is warmer than normal even if a portion of the United States is chilly.
As I noted in response to Trump’s tweet
And the WP article goes on
That added energy to Earth’s climate system alters more than just average temperatures. One active and heavily debated area of climate research concerns the degree to which climate change causes the jet stream encircling the Arctic to wobble southward, and send a surge of cold air across portions of North America — as it is now.
That’s right, blaming anthropogenic climate change for cold, and actually has several more paragraphs on the subject. And there were plenty of other tweets doing the same, such as
You see Donald, Global warming causes EXTREME WEATHER. Record Cold weather is EXEME. Therefore it is possible, if not likely that this weeks record cold is related to Global Warming.

The NY Times has a front page article on Trump’s tweet, and in another front page article that explains all the crazy cold and massive snows in apocalyptic ways, we get
While scientists routinely find themselves explaining that day-to-day weather patterns are not the same as long-term climate trends, they also widely agree that human-caused climate change is exacerbating extreme weather.
Got that? The same people who are Warmistsplaining the difference between weather and climate are not only blaming cold weather on ‘climate change’, but also, surprise, confusing weather and climate themselves.
