Donald Trump is continuing his crusade against global warming by slamming it as a myth. The Donald took to Twitter this past Wednesday evening and wrote that “this very expensive GLOBAL WARMING bulls*it” has got to stop. Our planet is freezing, record low temps, and our GW scientists are stuck in ice.”
Trump was making reference to climate scientists who got stuck in sea ice last week while on their way to the South Pole to document global warming. After getting stuck in Antarctic sea ice for over a week, the Akademik Shokalskiy research vessel was finally rescued yesterday by Chinese and Australian boats.
However, Trump has used the incident to continue his campaign against global warming research over the last several days. “It is really too bad that the scientists studying GLOBAL WARMING in Antarctica got stuck on their icebreaker because of massive ice and cold,” he tweeted. “Temperature at record lows in many parts of the country. 50 degrees below zero with wind chill in large area. Global warming folks iced in!”
The real estate tycoon and reality star has previously referred to global warming studies as “a con job.” Last November, he blamed China for the global warming press by declaring that “the concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S manufacturing non-competitive.”
