Every year, New York experiences extremely cold winters with several inches of snow.
However, on this Christmas, people put on shorts and went for shirtless runs in Central Park, no mittens or coats in sight.
While people may attribute this sudden weather change to global warming, presidential frontrunners such as Donald Trump and Ted Cruz don't agree.
“And you know in the 1920s people talked about global cooling. I don’t know if you know that or not. They thought the Earth was cooling. Now it’s global warming. Actually, we’ve had times where the weather wasn’t working out so they changed it to extreme weather and they have all different names, you know, so that it fits the bill,” Donald Trump opined in a radio interview.
But regardless of how people turn a blind eye to the climate crisis the world is facing, immediate action to cut down on the effects of global warming is needed so we can create environmental sustainability for the generations to come.
