Climate isn't weather: Trump gets science lessons from Assamese girl
On November 21, the temperature dropped to -2 degree Celsius in Washington, US. To this, US President Donald Trump tweeted, "Brutal and Extended Cold Blast could shatter ALL RECORDS. Whatever happened to Global Warming?" Thereafter, an Assamese girl decided to explain the President of the United States that 'Climate is not weather' and she nailed it. She's now winning hearts for her subtle lesson.
54 years younger to Trump, she passed high-school with average-marks
18-year-old Astha Sarmah from Jorhat in Assam responded to Trump's tweet in a witty manner. She first introduced herself as someone who is 54 years younger to Trump and that she just finished high school with average marks. But, even then she could tell him that 'Climate is not weather'. She even offered help to Trump with her 2nd-grade Encyclopedia with pictures.
Here is the clever remark by the teenager
Astha becomes inspiration for netizens, breaks headlines in foreign media
Astha's response left Twitterati in awe of her. Her comment received over 24,000 likes and more than 5,000 retweets. Netizens can't stop appreciating the teenager as one wrote, "Thank you for this tweet Astha. There's still hope for America and the world." Astha, reportedly, also broke headlines across media houses in the world. Guess, Trump didn't see that coming.
Trump's views on climate change are worth a read
Trump's views on climate change have been quite irrational in the past. Eight years ago, he had tweeted that Global warming was a concept created by and for China in order to make the US manufacturing non-competitive. On Monday, he quashed a report by his own administration, involving more than 300 leading climate scientists. He had said, "He doesn't believe in it (report)."
Trump was earlier trolled for celebrating Diwali, festival of 'Buddhists'
This isn't the first time that the US President is being trolled for an erroneous tweet. A few weeks back, when Trump tweeted about Diwali celebrations in White House, he missed the fact that it's a major Hindu festival. Trump apparently had celebrated 'a Diwali which is a major festival among Buddhists around the world'. Unsurprisingly, POTUS faced trolling for getting his facts wrong.
