With frigid Arctic weather descending on tens of millions of Americans, states have declared emergencies, mail carriers are staying inside, and theres a risk of frostbite for exposed skin in Chicago in as little as five minutes.
Little wonder that global warming is the last thing on peoples minds and that from some sectors most notably (and predictably) the president of the United States a familiar mocking of climate science has resumed. What the hell is going on with Global Wa(r)ming? Donald Trump tweeted Monday. Please come back fast, we need you!
Trumps tweet might have been meant mainly as a tongue-in-cheek way of making liberal heads explode, but the fact is global warming hasnt gone anywhere.
