Debunking Denialism asks - Is Donald Trump Scientifically Illiterate?
Emil Karlsson over at his website, Debunking Denialism, exposes one of America’s wealthiest wingnuts, and shows us just how uneducated you would have to be, to actually find his “scientific” arguments compelling.
Oh by the way, its not just climate change where Trump shows us his ignorance. Maybe Trump should have spent a bit more of his money on getting a better science education.
Donald Trump does not understand climate change
One of the most basic distinctions in climate science is the difference between weather and climate. Weather is the instantaneous atmospheric conditions, such as rainy, snowy, sunny and so on. Climate, on the other hand, is about long-term trends. Confusing weather with climate, claiming that we cannot predict climate because we cannot predict weather, or trying to argue against the existence of human-influenced climate change by referencing current weather events is one of the most common tactic used by climate change denier.
