President Donald Trump has made his opinion regarding global warming clear over the years, but his latest tweet on the issue exemplifies how he may be confusing climate change with weather.
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!

Trump is alluding to the Paris Climate Agreement the U.S. pulled out of earlier this year, saying the negative effects of global warming are actually positive because it can apparently warm up parts of the East this holiday season.
We at DOodle the NEWS went out of our way to find a brief video that quickly explains the difference between climate and weather, even with complimentary doodles in the clip!
Hopefully, climate action awareness will spread in a nation who’s leader has made it clear how much he understands the topic.
They changed the name from “global warming” to “climate change” after the term global warming just wasn’t working (it was too cold)!

The weather has been so cold for so long that the global warming HOAXSTERS were forced to change the name to climate change to keep $ flow!

It's freezing outside, where the hell is "global warming"??

To keep it simple, the current weather you feel outside is not an inclination of the effects of climate change or global warming. Climate is the measure of a places weather conditions over a very long period of time.
