SpongeBob is on his way to the Krusty Krab when he spots a large factory pipe mounted on the restaurant's roof. Inside is a parked boat pumping carbon dioxide into the pipe and out into the atmosphere. Mr. Krabs explains he is using global warming to his own advantage, creating an "Endless Summer" and allowing him to open the "Krusty Pool" year-round. However, SpongeBob has a plan to create a more-effective endless summer.
Later, Mr. Krabs is seen in his office playing with tiny wax figurines of him and a customer of the Krusty Pool. However, the figurines suddenly start to melt as a result of the raised temperatures. Mr. Krabs exits his office to see seventeen boats pumping carbon dioxide into the air.
Outside, Bikini Bottom has become a burning wasteland. SpongeBob is seen throwing a tire into a fire, explaining that he is helping to cause more global warming. A mob of citizens is seen running towards the Krusty Krab, which Mr. Krabs thinks are going to the pool. However, they literally run right over Mr. Krabs, and Patrick explains to him that they're moving north, not being able to live in the new climate because it is too hot.
Mr. Krabs is both depressed and frustrated from the heat, while SpongeBob is excited to cannonball into the pool. However, the water quickly evaporates and SpongeBob lands in the empty concrete pool, exclaiming, "Ouch."
