Does Donald Trump know a lot about nature?

At a recent rally, President Donald Trump told a gathered throng of supporters that wind energy was not useful because sometimes days were not windy. President Trump claimed if the U.S. relied on windmills and the wind stopped blowing, the average American would not be able to watch television. Trump then talked about how deep the Great Lakes are. He seems pretty all over the place in his understanding of renewable energy and nature in general. But he is the president. Do you think he's a nature expert?

Trump told an audience at a campaign rally that if the wind ever stops blowing, the power would go out. Scientists were quick to decry that claim. Per Newsweek

Michael Mann, a professor of atmospheric science at Pennsylvania State University, told Newsweek the comments amounted to “malicious ignorance” from the president. "The fact that he has repeated this lie indicates that it is intentional and malicious in nature," he argued.
"The truth is that a combination of wind, solar and other renewables, along with battery and smart grid technology, can provide continuous and abundant electricity," Mann said.

That said, the Great Lakes are very deep! He's not wrong about that! Lake Superior is 1,335 feet deep. It is not "record deepness" though—Crater Lake in Oregon is 1,942 feet deep. But he was still right about it being deep!
