Virender Sehwag's tweet on global warming has left tweeple confused.

Comments
About two hours ago, cricketer Virender Sehwag posted a  tweet dismissing global warming as something that's happening only in the US. In the tweet, the former cricketer suggested traffic and congestion has no link to pollution and that people should concentrate on the real issues. He didn't specify what those real issues are.
 
The weirdly-worded message left people very confused, with some wondering whether he was being sarcastic in writing the tweet.

Many, however, slammed the cricketer for his views on global warming, in which he misspelled as 'warning'.
 
Indian environmentalist Sunita Narain also replied to Virender Sehwag, explaining the link between traffic, pollution and climate change
 
Many asked him to clarify what he meant by 'real issues'
   
And this one tweet summed up how most people felt
   
After the original tweet garnered a lot of reactions on social media, Virender Sehwag posted a video on Twitter with an explanation. In it, he revealed that his first tweet was part of a corporate campaign to raise awareness about traffic and pollution ahead of Environment Day.
