I'm pretty sure Amy was standing out in real snow and cold, not virtual.

"While its counterparts in the east sweltered, Perth had one of its mildest summers in 18 years, recording just 10 days over 35 degrees Celsius.

Residents in the WA capital can normally expect about 20 days where the temperature reaches 35C or higher, and three or four days hotter than 40C.

However the hottest day this summer, January 14, was a mere 38C — the lowest maximum since the summer of 2001-02.

Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne and Canberra all recorded higher summer maximums, with each experiencing days exceeding 40C.

Sydney sweltered through the hottest day of the season, with a top of 43.4C, its highest temperature in 79 years."

Some places will get more rain, others less. some places will get cooler and so on. Climate change is not an even process!

The tweets are widely read, around the world. Nuff said!

Trump has to please the GOP's fossil fuel patrons.

Well, he is a clown. And some people do find clowns funny. I think he is terrifying, like other clowns, but for different reasons.

Calling it global warming never did make much sense to me, since it's a phenomenon that can include some fairly cold weather, more powerful storms and hurricanes, not to mention both drought and excessive rain at times. But overall higher average temps, melting icecaps and rising oceans are part of it all.

What else can you expect from our chronically uninformed idiot-in-chief?

He's counting on uneducated people falling for it, and it works.

Chi, I think you may be right. I doubt he would have understood climate change on his own, but by this time surely someone would have explained it to him in a 'for dummies' style? In that case, he is manipulating the ignorance of others.

On the other hand, he may have nobody near him who is brave enough to admit to understanding that climate change is real.

This man is beginning to bore me very much. Not a good thing, as I tend to want to ignore boring people.

I've never thought he's as stupid as some other people do. I think he's brilliant in knowing how to fire up his base, especially against liberals. Tweets like this pave the way for mocking Democratic platforms about global warming next year.
