Trump’s Climate Tweets Fail Fact Checking by His Own Agency

Jan 29, 2019, by Ari Natter

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has a message for the boss: Snowstorms don’t disprove global warming.

The agency’s message followed a tweet by President Donald Trump questioning the record-breaking cold poised to hit the Midwest.

“What the hell is going on with Global Waming? [sic]” Trump, a climate skeptic who once called it a Chinese hoax, tweeted on Monday night. “Please come back fast, we need you!”

The climate division of NOAA, a branch of the Commerce Department which provides “authoritative information about climate,” corrected the science with its own tweet Tuesday morning.

The message included a link to a NOAA explainer from 2015 that noted “Not only are severe snowstorms possible in a warming climate, they may even be more likely.”

A NOAA spokesman didn’t immediately respond to questions about the timing and intent of the tweet.

NOAA was closed during the partial government shutdown, when Trump issued a similar message: “Large parts of the Country are suffering from tremendous amounts of snow and near record setting cold,” Trump tweeted Jan. 20. “Wouldn’t be bad to have a little of that good old fashioned Global Warming right now!”
