Michael Bloomberg’s parody Spanish account and AOC speak on Sunday’s ‘climate crisis’ in NYC
Weather in New York City on Sunday was, how do we say this in scientific terms? Oh, yeah. We just remembered the word. It was PERFECT:
As of 1:30pm, new record highs have been set at Central Park (68°), Newark (69°), JFK (68°), Islip (68°), and Bridgeport (69°), breaking records previously set in 2017 and 2018. Islip and Bridgeport broke their records by 10° and 14°, respectively!

And New Yorkers were loving it:
What a dream of a January day, weather-wise, in NYC.

Well, not all New Yorkers. The good weather was somehow causing delays on Amtrak:
Train 99 is currently operating approx. 25min late due to earlier mechanical issues and weather-related delays east of New York (NYP).

It’s going to get worse, so just enjoy it:
You know that moment that sometimes happens before a storm surge, when the water pulls way back and people gather by the beach to remark what an amazing and beautiful thing it is?
T-shirt weather in January has started making me think of that.

Here’s Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blaming the unseasonably perfect weather on, you guessed it, on a climate crisis
It hit ~70° in NY. In January.
This weather at this time of year can be very risky for local farmers & families they serve.
If certain crops germinate/flower prematurely & a freeze follows, crops could fail or drop in yield.

And Michael Bloomberg’s parody Spanish account reprimanded New Yorkers for celebrating the good weather: You should “feelo malo”:
El changero del climacto es malo y todos los personas enjoyongo el weathero bueno todayo should feelo malo.

It’s both, which is why it’s funny and will probably end up getting banned from Twitter:
I can't decide if this account is offensive or hilarious or both. https://t.co/i4PaMqkbvK
