HONOLULU, Hawaii (The Adobo Chronicles, Honolulu Bureau) – Throughout his presidential campaign, Donald Trump has refused to accept scientific evidence on global warming. “Man-made climate change is a big hoax, ” he told The Adobo Chronicles.
The president-elect said he does not need any scientific evidence. “We just need to look at what’s happening around us,” he suggested in an exclusive interview from his penthouse suite at the Trump International Hotel in Waikiki.
“I flew by my private helicopter over the Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa volcanoes today and the peaks were covered in snow,” Trump said, “so how can anyone say there is global warming? I can only imagine it must be freezing down there.”
The National Weather Service in Honolulu has issued a winter storm warning for the summits of Hawaii’s Big Island as wind and snow engulf the high peaks.
Up to a foot of snow is possible on the summits of Hawaii’s Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa volcanoes above 12,000 feet.
Meteorologists say the summits could see periods of heavy snow with wind gusts up to 50 miles per hour through Friday evening.
