If you actually have listened to anything they've said, you'd know this is expected and it's been called "Climate Change" for about a decade now,
not global warming.
In short, a warming of the earth leads to glacial and ice pack melt. This in turn lessens the salinity of oceanic currents, causing them to change or
stop. This in turns affects the distribution of warm air and weather to regions on earth, causing major changes in weather patterns.
Ironically, global warming, in the classic sense, would lead to a new Ice Age.
It isn;t as simple as "Earth get warm, man bad"
EDIT: A good example is to look at the long/lat of the UK compared to, say, Northern Canada. We're on the same, but have drastically different
weather, due to the Gulf Stream carrying warm air/water north from the Carribean to the N Atlantic. Without the Gulf Stream, the UK and N Europe would
be like Siberia.
