Why do you say that? The fact is: the global average temperature is warming. We have been setting record high after record high.

Warmer water and warmer air = more evaporation = more moisture in the air.
More evaporation = more drought in some places.
More moisture in the air = more precipitation, which sometimes leads to more flooding in some places.

Melting polar ice is leading to weakened and wobbly jet stream, which is leading to polar air "slipping" far outside of where it used to sit. So, this means that it can snow in places where it hasn't in a very long time.
