National Geographic: Mars Polar Melt Hints at Solar, Not Human Cause of Global Warming, Scientist Says

Well, it seems that the data is in and Mars is warming too. Are Humans the cause of warming on Mars as well? [Per complaint, I removed a nasty partisan comment on this line]

Mars, too, appears to be enjoying more mild and balmy temperatures. In 2005 data from NASA's Mars Global Surveyor and Odyssey missions revealed that the carbon dioxide "ice caps" near Mars's south pole had been diminishing for three summers in a row.

Habibullo Abdussamatov, head of the St. Petersburg's Pulkovo Astronomical Observatory in Russia, says the Mars data is evidence that the current global warming on Earth is being caused by changes in the sun. "The long-term increase in solar irradiance is heating both Earth and Mars. Man-made greenhouse warming has made a small contribution to the warming seen on Earth in recent years, but it cannot compete with the increase in solar irradiance," Abdussamatov said.
Update: (Coral Springs, FL) Americans Against Hate, the group that was responsible for Senator Barbara Boxer rescinding an award from CAIR leader Basim Elkarra, will be protesting CAIR outside the Broward County Convention Center, in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, where CAIR is holding its annual event. Featured at CAIR's event will be Siraj Wahhaj, an individual whose name is found on the U.S. Attorney's list of "unindicted co-conspirators" of the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center. Wahhaj served as a witness for Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman, the spiritual leader of the attack, during the bombing trial.
