Right you know on "A Big Piece of Garbage" when the mayor says to the group in his office that he hopes the big piece of garbage heading towards Earth isn't a phenomanome (or something to that effect) like second hand smoke or Global Warming well then on a later episode of The "Crimes of the Hot" it explains how Earth has been preventing Global warming since 2000 and something by depositing a giant cube of ice into the sea every so often which when the ice ran out results in the sudden intense global warming on "Crimes of the Hot". So the Earthicans obviously knew Global warming was true and occuring for all of this time, for just under 1000 years time!

So why does the Mayor say that Global warming isn't true when it has been known for all of this time????????      :)

Yeah, I mean, come on!  How can you doubt the pronouncements of someone as serious as Mayor Poopenmeyer?

Mayor Poopenmeyer is a politician, not a scientist. I wouldn't place much confidence in his word when the subject is science.

Maybe he was fooled by how easily the first global warming was cancelled out by nuclear winter.

Which gets strange because in another episode Leela says "...and you guys never had a single nuclear war."

Probably a gag like when Woody Allen wakes up in "Sleeper" The doctor gives him a cigarette and milk shake and says "deep fat and nicotene are the best things for a person".

Who knows, it just came out a few weeks ago that high fiber diets are pointless as far as prevention.

that doesnt mean there wasn't a nuclear war, it just means it was after Fry's time.  maybe around the time the aliens wiped out New York?

lol that is true he is more on the politician side of looking at things but the thing I would have thought would be that Professor Farnsworth would have corrected him or something... as it seemed like everyone else agreed with him...? I mean out of the 4 you thought one of them would have said "Well actually... etc etc" especially Professor Farnsworth lol.

As it is quite an important aspect of the environment, but ahh welll... lol   :D

A further thing on this issue: the ice, sooner or later, melts, and it displaces water. Shouldn't this raise the ocean's level? And another thing: Planet Express seems to be situated in downtown NNY, that is Manhattan or somewhere close, right next to the water which in New New York is either the East River or the Hudson River, both connected to the Atlantic. Why didn't the Planet Express Building get flooded as well? Questions... so many questions...

Ah, but greenhouse gases would evaporate the water from the ocean and put it into the atmosphere, where, well, apparently our handsomest politicians figured out that more blocks of ice would cancel the greenhouse effect of water vapor out.

Thus solving the problem once and for all.  Once and for all!

maybe no one told the mayor about global warming and he didn't care to ask why he had to hire someoe to put an ice cube in the ocean.

Well the simpilest answer would be:

Big ball of garbage: Season 1
Crimes of hot: Season 4

Who expects to remember 1 single line in almost 4 years?
