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:

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