Mars Warming Suggests Solar Factor in Earth Global Warming

Human activity is responsible for global warming, and now it appears that the sun may be getting in on the act, too. Scientists report that Mars is warming as well, apparently due to increasing solar heat.

If this is true, it threatens to turn a medium term danger for earth into a sudden catastrophe, if an unexpected increase in solar heat should be added to the intense rise in heat from greenhouse gas emissions.

All climate models assume consistent heat from the sun, and none take into account this unexpected factor.

Unfortunately, religious extremists who want to see the end of the world and corporate interests who don't want to spend money reducing emission are beginning to combine their forces to argue that, since the sun is responsible there's nothing we can do.

If additional solar heating is indeed taking place, then an imminent danger could very suddenly become a major catastrophe.
