Global Warming is Worse Than I Thought

Yes it is. In fact, it's so bad it is spreading from our Earth to Mars! Think of it, the damage we humans are doing is so bad & extensive it's spreading throughout the solar system:
According to a September 20 NASA news release, "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." Because a Martian year is approximately twice as long as an Earth year, the shrinking of the Martian polar ice cap has been ongoing for at least six Earth years.

The shrinking is substantial. According to Michael Malin, principal investigator for the Mars Orbiter Camera, the polar ice cap is shrinking at "a prodigious rate."

"The images, documenting changes from 1999 to 2005, suggest the climate on Mars is presently warmer, and perhaps getting warmer still, than it was several decades or centuries ago," reported Yahoo News on September 20.

Please people, ban SUVs and cars so our betters can jet around in their private planes and ride around in their stretch SUV limousines.
