The polar vortex, which sent sub-zero temperatures Wednesday through the Upper Midwest, has also fueled the debate over whether extreme cold weather is the result of climate change driven by increased atmospheric emissions.

The study used "county-by-county statistics" to compute "climate-change vulnerabilities" including agricultural yields, mortality, coastal damage and risk to labor.

The president recently tweeted that global warming (or, in Trump's spelling, "waming") should "come back fast", as if it's gone anywhere. What the hell is going on with Global Waming? Not only did the cute kids break it down as Kimmel promised, but they expressed how dire of a problem climate change is and how it will affect the younger generation.

"Even though it's cold where you are, that doesn't mean the globe isn't heating up".

The Chicago Times, Axios, The Washington Post and others echoed the theory that global warming was weakening the jet stream, allowing the "polar vortex" to meander south and bring record cold. "Please come back fast, we need you!", Trump tweeted on Monday night.

A read of the comments from numerous people responding is a really easy way to see how the political spectrum in the United States is very divided. Wonderful how big this system is. "People can't last outside even for minutes", he tweeted this afternoon. We chose to skip over those tweets to avoid too much redundancy for readers.

Poellot also was quick to point out the key difference between weather and climate: Weather refers to the state of the atmosphere at a specific time, while climate is the average of weather conditions over a longer period of time.

"One of the problems that a lot of people like myself, we have very high levels of intelligence but we're not necessarily such believers", President Trump said during an interview following the release of a dire National Climate Assessment that said global warming is intensifying throughout the country and will challenge the economy, environment and human health. None of this, however, seems to be reaching the same man who once called global warming a hoax by the Chinese.
