Study Shows Climate Change on Mars. Which Republican is to blame?

I'm waiting for the moonbats to turn this against Republicans.

Orbiter's Long Life Helps Scientists Track Changes on Mars

New gullies that did not exist in mid-2002 have appeared on a Martian sand dune.

That's just one of the surprising discoveries that have resulted from the extended life of NASA's Mars Global Surveyor, which this month began its ninth year in orbit around Mars. Boulders tumbling down a Martian slope left tracks that weren't there two years ago. New impact craters formed since the 1970s suggest changes to age-estimating models. And for three Mars summers in a row, deposits of frozen carbon dioxide near Mars' south pole have shrunk from the previous year's size, suggesting a climate change in progress.

My first reaction was to blame Reagan but we all know it was that damn George Bush who refused to sign Koyoto.

I blame John Kerry's huge spittle of ego. It's now reaching all the way to other planets and will take eaons to fully publicize. I wouldn't be surprised if a magic hat is found on the planet of Mars, a trunk o' cash, a margarita glass with Ted Kennedy's wet fingerprints on it (in which case, the liberals will exclaim, "There IS water on Mars, and, what we thought to be canals are actually the rivers of Cambodia!").

Thus, Cheney is responsible.

Of course this is because of a republican. It's obviously the California Governor's fault for starting that ancient alien atmosphere machine!

Let me play devil's advocate here. Let's assume that we're not causing global warming, and that it's the sun's fault.

Isn't it still bad, and shouldn't we try to think of something to stop it anyway? The Kyoto treaty is rubbish, but maybe we should try to stop it.

Sheik YB is dead-on: It's all of us Americans driving our SUV's on Mars that's doing it!

Craig, I agree. We should stop Kyoto immediately :P

Let's assume that we're not causing global warming, and that it's the sun's fault.

Most climate scientists say we're accelerating global warming (those that think we are having an impact at all, that is), not actually causing it.

However, this is Mars we're talking about, and now that I think about it, it's clearly the martians under the surface (in the canals, you know!) burning all those fossil fuels in preparation of their invasion of Earth.

What we really need is MarsFirst! and the Mars Liberation Front (MLF!) to put a stop to this. I think we could just export our equivalent organizations. One way.

After further reading, I now think it is a conspiracy between the Sun and THE GIANT BALL OF FIRE.

Don't laugh -S-. ;-) I've seen just such a thing in Florida (in the Keys) and it was rather large. It's a bit nerve rattling. The first thing any of us said was, "Holy Sh**!" And we talked about it for weeks. But then we ARE Floridians ;-)

Of course it was a Republican President's fault, it was Gerald R. Ford. The first Mars probe, Viking I was launched on August 20, 1975. Gerald Ford was President when it was launched.

Obviously, our invasion of Mars, by the aptly named VIKING, altered Mars Mother's environment in countless ways including the introduction of Global Warming.

It just goes to show that Republicans are not just a threat to this world but a threat to the entire universe.

I tend to agree with mantis. We are accelerating global
warming (if anything); not causing it. We've had global
warming since the last ice age.

I blame myself. WTF was I thinking by letting my pet butterfly flap its wings so carelessly like that???

Actually, global warming on... (Below threshold)

Actually, global warming on Mars is our fault. You see, the ozone-depleting agents, when they are in large enough quantities to be released out of the Earth's atmosphere, wander in space and eventually gravitate towards Mars, where they are drawn to the planet by its gravitational pull.

If George Bush had signed Kyoto, there would not have been enough agents to escape into space so mars would hve been protected. Now, it is only a matter of decades before Mars is completely ruined by the corporate congolmerates operating from Earth.

Well, at least now that Mars is heating up Hell is freezing over, so it works out in the end.

Let's assume that we're not causing global warming, and that it's the sun's fault. Isn't it still bad, and shouldn't we try to think of something to stop it anyway?

I've heard that Earth's atmosphere is cleaner than its been in centuries, which is allowing more harmful rays of the sun to reach its surface. There is one way to stop it, dirty coal burning power plants. We need to start polluting now! Burn a tree save the planet!

On the other hand, being from Minnesota, I'd rather selfishly enjoy the global warming and wait until this cycle with the sun runs it course. Russian scientists are saying 10 years.

John S:

"Most climate scientists say we're accelerating global warming" In the last 100 years we've raised the average world temperature ONE degree F. (Has anyone looked into the accuracy of thermometers used 100 years ago?) It's estimated that in another 100 years we'll raise it another degree or two. That's the amount of average change you experience driving 20 miles south from Concord, NH to Manchester, NH. Yet people voluntarily move 1,200 miles south to gain a 10 degree average warmer climate. What they don't tell you, is global warming, if it even exists, is a goddamn IMPROVEMENT.

Despite my best efforts no doubt. Anyway, with this kind of material how can you go wrong? Global warming on Mars. Ack ack ack.
