Global warming on Neptune’s moon Triton as well as Jupiter and Pluto, and now Mars has some scratching their heads over what could possibly be in common with the warming of all these planets.
That's right: so extraordinarily damaging are our emissions that we are causing global warming throughout our entire solar system! Truly, we are a wonderfully destructive species!
Quite seriously though, here's an idea: maybe the warming isn't, you know... um... caused by human activity to any extent that matters or is likely to matter in a hundred years either. Maybe the sun is actually getting hotter.
But let's add in another idea. According to some reports, the Antarctic is cooling and, indeed, putting on ice. In the meantime, we are experiencing warming effects in the northern hemisphere. Now, what might that suggest?
Well, this is a very informative page about the sun and climate change. It's very much worth a read.
It's also worth playing with this little Flash animation that allows you to see what happens when you alter the orientation of the earth's axis.
Go on, have a go. And why not send the link to Batshit while you're about it...?
I would write more, but I'm so wearied by all the people with no understanding of science spouting off in ignorance that I can barely be bothered to write about it any more.
