* [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' sometimes delves into the topic of global warming:
** In "The Loophole", Gumball and Darwin tell the dangerously LiteralMinded robot Robert to protect all life on earth. He concludes that humanity is the greatest threat to life on earth for contributing to global warming, leading him to try to KillAllHumans.
** "The Faith" has Gumball and Darwin try to cheer up Alan by singing a song about how life isn't bad despite all of the bad stuff that happen. One of the things they sing about how "the environment is suffering and might not be reversed". Later on in the song, a character is seen reading a newspaper with the headline "GLOBAL WARNING -- NO HOPE".
** "The Candidate" has the students of Elmore Junior High stuck in a damp room, as they decide to elect a leader to sort their limited food supply. [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything Darwin keeps bringing up the rising temperature of the room, but everybody else ignores him or shrugs it off. The school's boiler eventually blows up, leaving the school in ruins.]]

* ''Film/TheDayAfterTomorrow'' revolves around a sudden catastrophic global Ice Age precipitated by global warming. This concept is [[TheThemeParkVersion very loosely based]] on a theory that global warming will disrupt certain mid-Atlantic ocean currents, resulting in a 20-30 degree Fahrenheit temperature drop across much of Europe and North America.
** Note that the theory doesn't predict that it'll happen in only 2 days, nor that it will form super-cooled columns capable of freezing the fuel(!) in a running(!!) helicopter engine.
*** From my textbook on this subject: "The concern...is that we will add enough greenhouse gas that the climate system would undergo a large and rapid shift to an entirely new climate state - equivalent to [a] canoe rapidly transitioning from right side up to upside down." However, it also says that this is very unlikely.

'''Note:''' This page is only for examples concerning the portrayal of global warming in fiction. With all due respect and sensitivity, RealLife examples ''need to be avoided''. Global warming as a rather controversial and politicized issue [[AcceptablePoliticalTargets has become]] pure FlameBait (especially in TheUnitedStates). [[noreallife]]

* Bill Williamson in ''Film/{{Rampage}}'' is a believer of global warming, since he is an atheist and very pro-science. He has blamed global warming and pollution for the poor economy since global warming leads to ruination or depletion of natural resources and he believes skeptics and deniers of this phenomenon should be executed by gunfire.

* In an episode of ''Series/MyNameIsEarl'', Earl visits a former stoner he robbed (who now lives in a hippie commune), and learns about GlobalWarming. He becomes scared, and spends the episode obsessively trying to go green. After Earl has a breakdown, the ex-stoner helps him see that he doesn't have to do ''everything'' and that he can only do his best.

* In ''Series/TheExpanse'' while never discussed explictly, it is shown in the opening montage that shows the development of the solar system. There are also clearly seawalls around New York City to keep the rising sea at bay. Which is also a source of irony. While those in space are killing each other over water, Earth is practically drowning in it.

** In the earlier episode "Xmas Story", Fry comments that mountain snow is beautiful and glad global warming never happened. Leela responded it did , but nuclear winter canceled it out.

* ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' advocates the consensus that global warming is real and caused by humans. Stephen Hillenburg was inspired by global warming to produce the short "The Endless Summer" to educate children about the dangers and causes of global warming. Mr. Krabs tried heating up Bikini Bottom using just one car to cause carbon emissions so that summer never ends and he can make money off hot customers coming to his pool for a swim. [=SpongeBob=], being so excited about an endless summer, throws in a lot more cars and inadvertently sets his town on fire. Everyone in Bikini Bottom run towards the Krusty Pool, and [[spoiler: they ran past it, with Patrick claiming he and everyone else are leaving cause it's too hot here. At the end, [=SpongeBob=] tries to take a dive into the boiling hot pool, but it evaporates before he lands.]]
