What In The World…?

Have we driven Planet Earth to drink, or is this a global warming reference? I’m inclined to think the latter, since one of the reported results of global warming is the loss of polar icecaps.

But the more interesting question is this:

Earlier this week, referring to a few days of unusually cool weather, a radio newsman said “So much for global warming, huh?” Which once again made me wonder: When people say this sort of thing, are they really so astoundingly stupid that they think “global warming” means that everybody’s weather, every day, is getting warmer across the board? Are they making a joke hoping everybody else is astoundingly stupid? Is this simply their way of mocking the concept of global warming (while not realizing that they’re doing it in such a way that they’ll sound astoundingly stupid)? Or is there another option I haven’t considered?
