GLOBAL WARMING: IS THERE NOTHING IT CAN’T DO? “Actual AP Headline: ‘Experts: Global Warming Means More Antarctic Ice,’” as spotted by Noel Sheppard of Newsbusters.

Which sounds remarkably reminiscent of this actual L. A. Times headline from 2010: “Why cleaner air could speed global warming.”

Or this Reuters lede from last year:

Smoke belching from Asia’s rapidly growing economies is largely responsible for a halt in global warming in the decade after 1998 because of sulphur’s cooling effect, even though greenhouse gas emissions soared, a U.S. study said on Monday.

(Paging the Dr. Stranglove-esque John Holdren who suggested launching rockets full of pollution into the upper atmosphere in the early days of the Obama administration — you’re wanted in the Moral Equivalent of War Room.)

Given that global warming causes everything, no wonder, as Steve Hayward wrote last year at Power Line, “Climate Change Has Become the ‘Dead Parrot Sketch’ of American Politics.”

But when will Washington’s Joke Warfare against the American public finally come to an end?
