Global Warming REAL! On MARS!

We've heard the hysterics from the left who insist that global warming is man made and urgent measures to restructure every aspect of modern life are necessary in order to avoid extinction.

Well, we don't do environmental hysterics here at Mike's America. Just as the alar apple scare turned out to be nothing but a left wing scare campaign, global warming hysterics are equally incredulous.

From the July 2004 News Telegraph:

Global warming has finally been explained: the Earth is getting hotter because the Sun is burning more brightly than at any time during the past 1,000 years, according to new research.

A study by Swiss and German scientists suggests that increasing radiation from the sun is responsible for recent global climate changes.

Dr Sami Solanki, the director of the renowned Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research in Gottingen, Germany, who led the research, said: "The Sun has been at its strongest over the past 60 years and may now be affecting global temperatures.

And yet all we hear from the left is hysteria about the dumping of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere as a result of burning fossil fuels....

WEEELLLLL, Now we have a study that points out that the Earth itself is responding to lower CO2 levels by releasing this greenhouse gas from the soil. Reminds me of the accurate, but widely derided statement President Reagan made about hydrocarbon pollution from trees.

Carbon levels in soil are dropping much faster than previously thought, meaning that the reductions in CO2 emissions achieved since 1990 have effectively been wiped out, a report says today.

Soil sampled from almost 6,000 sites in England and Wales was shown to contain an average of 15 per cent less carbon than 25 years ago.

The findings have alarmed scientists because, while Britain cut its carbon dioxide emissions by around 12.7 million tons per year between 1990 and 2002, 13 million tons of the gas were released into the atmosphere by soil.

As the first comprehensive historical comparison of soil samples in the world, the findings suggest that significant carbon loss, previously blamed on changes in land use and management, is due to climate change.

O.K. so Mother Earth is responding to decreased CO2 emmissions by pulling it out of the soil. Still no proof that humanity, or more appropriately, PRESIDENT BUSH, isn't to blame for any perceived global warming.

But then, there is this report from NASA:

August 7, 2003: It's not every day you get to watch a planetary ice cap vanish, but this month you can. All you need are clear skies, a backyard telescope, and a sky map leading to Mars.
Mars has gotten so big in recent weeks that even a backyard telescope will show details on the planet's surface: dust clouds, volcanic terrains, impact basins. Best of all is the south polar cap. Made of frozen CO2 or "dry ice," it reflects more sunlight than any other part of the planet. The southern hemisphere of Mars is tipped toward Earth and the bright cap is remarkably easy to see.

Don't wait too long to look, though, because the ice will soon be gone.

Like Earth, Mars has seasons that cause its polar caps to wax and wane. "It's late spring at the south pole of Mars," says planetary scientist Dave Smith of the Goddard Space Flight Center. "The polar cap is receding because the springtime sun is shining on it."

Soooo... the polar icecaps on Mars are melting. Somehow it's all George W. Bush's fault as we will soon discover. Either that or we may yet overlook the leftwing control-freak hysteria surrounding the Earth's own climate cycles and conclude that these flucuations are as natural as the seasons on Mars.
