Seems like something else is melting fast: Algore et.al.'s 15 minutes. And note that the theory that GW ISN'T happening is controversial.

And note that the theory that GW ISN'T happening is controversial.

That's only the first question. Global warming may well be happening. Assuming it is, the second and more important question is: what's causing it?

Folks tend to combine these two questions such that "Global Warming, Therefore Our Fault".

The counter by such noted scientists as Mr. Limbaugh is to say, "Not Our Fault, therefore No Global Warming."

Interestingly, these are logically equivalent statements -- and both wrong.

If Mars is warming anyway, let's terraform the damn place and turn it into a CONSERVATIVE planet-wide Republic like the US is supposed to me. ;-)

Based on reading from both sides of the controversy, IMHO, global warming is indeed happening. But it is being caused by the sun and there is little we mere mortals can do about it.

Methinks part of this "mass hysteria" is to allow a bunch of people to apply for funding to keep chasing something that doesn't exist.

If global warming is debunked, they'll have to find a real job.

Unbelievable... We are so rotten that our greenhouse gas destruction of mother earth is leading to the destruction of Mars! You know what this means?

Of Course! George Bush could destroy the entire GALAXY!!! HE MUST BE STOPPED!!!

The controversy is about man-made, or anthropogenic GW. There is no doubt about the slow current warming: just as there is no doubt about the Mediaeval warm period. Both were/are caused by the Milankovitch cycle and solar variability.

"greenhouse gases into the atmosphere"

According to NASA's head climatologist, the greenhouse gases actually "keep the earth cooler."

Without the greenhouse gases, the temp on the plant would average 145 degree F.

The "controversy" is not whether global warming is happening,

but whether it is human caused, and therefore just one more reason for "liberals" (LEFTISTS/COMMUNISTS) to curb more of our freedoms while, as in Algore's case, they do NOT curb their use of resources.

Mars, too, appears to be enjoying more mild and balmy temperatures.

Probably from buring European spacecraft.

The article says Mars has no moon- that should be "no large moon", unless they were trying to avoid Fear and Panic.

This comment from one MMGW (Man-Made GW) scientist:

"His views are completely at odds with the mainstream scientific opinion," said Colin Wilson, a planetary physicist at England's Oxford University.

So were Galileo's views and Ptolomy's and the Wright Brothers' and the views of just about any great scientist of note in history really. If history has shown us anything, it is that the orthodoxy can be wrong and frequently is, particularly in science.

no doubt Mars was once a Republican planet inhabited by conservatives driving SUV's

Earth is currently experiencing rapid warming, which the vast majority of climate scientists says is due to humans pumping huge amounts of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. (Get an overview: "Global Warming Fast Facts".)

Rapid? Maybe since the Mini Ice Age several hundred years ago. But it's only been a portion of 1C during the first part of the 20th century and general cooling since then.

Global warming is a fact.

We are currently in a critical transition phase. Within the next 90 days we can expect the entire northern hemisphere to experience a significant increase in the average daily temperature. This will result in substantial melting of the frozen ground cover and perhaps flooding of low lying areas.

Scientists are currently seeking federal grants to fund research necessary to explain the causes and help to limit the impact. They warn that new taxes are almost surely required to fund the necessary retraining of citiznes to correct their behavior and attitudes.
