A 2008 Space Odyssey

As if we didn't have enough to worry about, it now appears that Jupiter is in the midst of Global Warming (See Full Story). I'm not sure if it's because of gasoline powered cars or because of cow flatulence or both, but this distant neighbor in our solar system appears to be getting hotter. This comes on the heels of a report, just last year, that Mars was undergoing a similar warming (See Full Story).

I am sure we are all waiting to hear "what" the guru of Global Warming, Al Gore, has to say about this. Maybe the earth should establish a system of carbon credits for our solar system. Maybe a tree planting system? You could reduce your solar-system carbon footprint by planting a few trees on either Mars or Jupiter. (I really think that trees along the canals on Mars would be a nice touch!)

Do you think the hurricanes on Mars and Jupiter are increasing in their frequency and intensity due to their Global Warming? I'm sure Al knows!

Just maybe Jupiter and Mars are two excellent examples of what a lot of scientists are saying: That our global warming is a result of increased solar activity. Of course, Al Gore would say this is nonsense science. Instead, he would stand by his claim that those scientists who don't recognized that global warming is a result of human activity are in the "bag" for the big oil companies and other big corporations! Maybe he's right. Why should we listen to a bunch of scientists with Ph.D's in things like climatology and geophysics and astrophysics when we could listen to Al Gore with his Bachelor of Arts and his major in Government? That has always made sense to me!?!? How about you?
