Weather vs. cli­mate

The head­line on the June 6 ar­ti­cle “Pressed on global warm­ing in U.K., Trump says cli­mate ‘changes both ways’ ” mis­lead­ingly in­di­cated that Pres­i­dent Trump was speak­ing about the cli­mate, whereas he ac­tu­ally said the weather “changes both ways.” Still, it is sad that the pres­i­dent of the United States seem­ingly doesn’t un­der­stand the dif­fer­ence be­tween cli­mate and weather. Such ignorance is at the root of the prob­lem in fight­ing cli­mate change. If the pres­i­dent, will­fully or out of ignorance, speaks in such a way, we have lit­tle hope of gen­er­at­ing the will to make the nec­es­sary changes to fight this global scourge.
