The difference between weather and climate


It is so cold today that the Cleveland area has pretty much shut down and people are being urged to stay home. Of course, this has brought out the skeptics, including Donald Trump, who think it never gets old to point out that it gets cold and snows in winter, conveniently ignoring the fact that right now Australia is going through a record-breaking heat wave.

Jimmy Kimmel brought in a couple of 8-year olds to explain the difference between climate and weather.

But the children’s explanation might be too difficult for Trump so Seth Meyers explains it in terms that he thinks Trump might understand. But of course he won’t because he can’t and also because he doesn’t want to. None of the skeptics do.

    Jörg, skeptic (or, as we write it) just means a doubter.

    (You think he should be called an ‘unbeliever’, instead? 🙂 )

    Skepticism involves critical thinking.

    It can, but it needen’t. The salient aspect is the doubting, not its basis.
