Storyline

Planet Express is hired to scoop a slab of ice from Halley's Comet and drop it in the ocean to combat global warming. But when they find the comet all out of ice, the inventor of the environment, Al Gore, holds a Global Warming convention. There Professor Farnsworth reluctantly admits the process was sped up by the pollution emissions of all robots. This leads President Nixon's head to invite all of Earth's robots to the Galapagos Islands for a big party (during which they will be destroyed). Written by The TV Archaeologist

Funny even if it is overly lecturing at times
6 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Things are getting hot on Earth due to global warming and the usually solution of dropping huge lumps of ice that have been mined on Halley's Comet into the sea no longer works as all the ice there is gone. So solve the problem all scientists are invited to attend a meeting in Kyoto to come up with a solution. Wernstrom proposes using a giant mirror to reflect the sun's heat back into space but an accident leads to it reflecting a concentrated beam on to the Earth! It is at this point that Professor Farnsworth admits that his actions when he designed robots for Mom have caused the problem... global warming is caused by robots! Soon afterwards Bender receives an invitation from Nixon; he is throwing a party for all robots in the Galapagos Islands... of course it is just a ploy to get them all together so he can destroy them. Luckily the professor has another plan; he just has to put it into action before it is too late.

This episode had plenty of good moments; I liked how Bender finally found a creature he cared about and it was fun trying to spot all the robots from previous episodes at Nixon's party. On the downside the global warming message felt very heavy handed; it even featured Al Gore as his own head giving a speech on the matter! I don't mind stories that deal with issues but they need to be done subtly to avoid giving the audience the feeling they are being lectured to... at least there are enough really funny moments to keep the episode entertaining.
