Sporadically providing half-formed thoughts since 2006!
And this just adds another spin to things.http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2007/02/070228-mars-warming.htmlInteresting, when you consider that Mars doesn't have a human population or industrialization to contribute to what's happening.
Mars does, however, have periodic, massive dust cloud activity which is the biggest contributor to temperature fluctuations:http://www.realclimate.org/index.php/archives/2005/10/global-warming-on-mars/On top of that, the variation of temperature on Mars over time is very high, meaning that recent trends aren't particularly indicative of anything.
True, I just thought it was interesting. But one of the articles on this that I found also mentioned that Jupiter and Saturn were also heating up. So who really knows?Earth itself goes through cyclical weather patterns, of which I don't believe we have enough reliable scientific documentation to start completely freaking out yet.While I do believe Global Warming to be an issue, I don't know that I believe it to be the doomsday scenario that some folks make it out to be.
