After the House Science Committee tweeted out an article from Breitbart denying that the Earth is warming and is actually getting cooler, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) took to Twitter to respond.

In doing so, he referenced the current President-elect and a certain sore spot for him.

The article that the GOP-led committee linked to stated that climate change is not happening and temperatures are actually getting lower. This despite recent reports that the Arctic is currently 36 degrees warmer than normal and that this year is on pace to be the warmest on record.
Sanders made climate change awareness a key platform of his candidacy, proposing policy solutions to address greenhouse gases and carbon emissions. Meanwhile, the incoming POTUS has previously said that global warming is a hoax created by the Chinese.
