I write this very brief post tonight not because I am trying to refute the “Man did it!” side of the Global Warming debate. Rather, it is simply that when this LiveScience.com article was sent to me by a frequent reader of this blog (for which he has my thanks), the title jumped out at me as something that I thought was surely a spoof:
My initial reaction: What’s next — Moon Blamed for Tides? Earth’s Rate of Rotation Blamed for Length of Day? Salt Blamed for Ocean Water’s Very Unpleasant Taste?
Anyway, the article is an interesting read. It seems that Earth is not the only planet in the solar system experiencing global warming — Mars, Jupiter, and others are also seeing what might be a rise in temperature. (Perhaps the “Jesus Tomb” team can help us calculate the probability of this being a coincidence.)
