Climate change hits Mars

So how is it that humans are causing all this global warming if it is happening on Mars too? That would seem to point to the Sun as the cause of warming on Earth too? More lies being fed to us by a system which sees us as mere cattle. There are scumbags out there who think a 90% depopulation of the planet would be a good idea - as long as they are in the 10% no doubt!!! Most of what we are told is a lie, most of what we learnt at school is a lie - much of what ou you hear online is a lie. The solution: question everything and everyone. Most of the time you'll find that they either don't know as much as they claim, or what they do know is based on a foundation of ideologically inspired bullshit! There was a time when humanity thought the sun revolved around the earth and burnt anyone who dared challenge than notion. The same is true today, humans aren't any more civilised or intelligent! We are basically just a bunch of primates with machine guns!

Scientists from Nasa say that Mars has warmed by about 0.5C since the 1970s. This is similar to the warming experienced on Earth over approximately the same period.

Since there is no known life on Mars it suggests rapid changes in planetary climates could be natural phenomena.

The mechanism at work on Mars appears, however, to be different from that on Earth. One of the researchers, Lori Fenton, believes variations in radiation and temperature across the surface of the Red Planet are generating strong winds.

In a paper published in the journal Nature, she suggests that such winds can stir up giant dust storms, trapping heat and raising the planet’s temperature.

Fenton’s team unearthed heat maps of the Martian surface from Nasa’s Viking mission in the 1970s and compared them with maps gathered more than two decades later by Mars Global Surveyor. They found there had been widespread changes, with some areas becoming darker.

When a surface darkens it absorbs more heat, eventually radiating that heat back to warm the thin Martian atmosphere: lighter surfaces have the opposite effect. The temperature differences between the two are thought to be stirring up more winds, and dust, creating a cycle that is warming the planet.
