Things are heating up on Mars...literally. The planet is experiencing its own version of global warming. The dry-ice polar caps are diminishing. Paul Hsieh speculates that this must be on account of our failure to sign Kyoto. Wow, when somebody close to me told me that I could vote for Bush if I wanted to, but I would have to accept the fact that everything that happens from now on is my fault...well, I just didn't grasp the cosmic implications.
On the other hand, I can't help but wonder if two planets so close to each other are both experiencing a rise in surface temperature, isn't it just possible that it might have to do with that nearby star they both orbit? I'm just asking is all. I mean, what if...
An Instalanche! Thanks, Glenn. Nice Halliburton reference. For those of you new to The Speculist, welcome. Please feel free to have a look around. We usually do more good news than bad, although we're not averse to occasionally tackling the tough questions, e.g., if turkey guts are good, wouldn't raw sewage be even better?
