(Newser) – Donald Trump added some hot air of his own to add to the “what global warming?” debate occasioned by the brutal winter—and Al Gore, Mr. Green himself, was the target. With the coldest winter ever recorded, with snow setting record levels up and down the coast, the Nobel committee should take the Nobel Prize back from Al Gore,” Trump told members of his Trump National Golf Club.

Getting a standing ovation, the New York Post reports, Trump added, “Gore wants us to clean up our factories and plants in order to protect us from global warming, when China and other countries couldn’t care less. It would make us totally noncompetitive in the manufacturing world, and China, Japan and India are laughing at America’s stupidity.”
