A couple of months ago, meteorologist Ryan Maue got wind of an Instagram weather rant done by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and took to the Twitter machine to issue some clarifications on her claims about so-called “casual tornadoes” allegedly being evidence that “the climate crisis is real, y’all.”

“The Congresswoman @AOC does not know the difference between weather and climate,” he tweeted, explaining how to differentiate between the two:

“Weather is what outfit you wear heading out the door. Climate is your closet wardrobe.”

Fast forward to this week, and Maue is back, once again taking issue with the freshman Congresswoman’s alarming social media “reports” about DC weather.

Here’s what AOC wrote:

Maue responded with a series of tweets subtly insinuating that Ocasio-Cortez’s expertise in this area was … lacking:

Not every whether event is related to climate change, Maue noted:

He concluded with a little zinger about how “this science is cutting-edge … but the politics obviously isn’t”:

Maue is one of the few meteorologists I’ve heard of who is not afraid of openly disagreeing with and debating climate alarmists – and not just those in politics, but also others in his field of expertise.
