    I wonder why it's happening? Maybe it's a natural phenomenon.

    Gee, let's blame everything on global warming. The earth's poles, the glaciers, the meteorite impacts...

    When someone gets your coffee too hot, blame it on global warming. Likewise when its gone cold.

    When you're too cold in an air conditioned room in the middle of summer, blame it on global warming.

    When someone cuts one in crowded room, blame it on global warming.
