There is some news making the rounds that Earth is not the only planet experiencing global warming. First off, I want to make a very big point here: the changes in the Earth due to global warming, while real, are somewhat subtle. So any really strong signal of global warming on outer planets like Jupiter or especially Pluto, if real, are very unlikely to be due to the Sun. Second, what I am seeing in these arguments is a very dangerous practice called "cherry picking"; selectively picking out data that support your argument and ignoring contrary evidence.
Are they warming too? Any planetary scientists reading this blog entry, please contact me. Third, if you actually read the articles about the specific cases of planetary warming to which I linked above, you see that they all have separate explanations:. Mars: To start, is Mars even warming globally at all? Perhaps not — it might be a local effect. And if it is global, there already is an idea of why that might be happening: it would be due to periodic changes in its orbit, called Milankovitch cycles.
The Earth has them too, and they do affect our climate. I think his science is a little suspect. His reasoning is certainly specious— he says if Mars and Earth are both warming, it must be due to the Sun. This fun sto Perfect for the early reader ages ! The war is about to enter a phase of unprecedented ferocity. Crissa Stone is an efficient thief, who's all business, always has a plan, never works near her home in NYC, has never needed to fire her gun on a job, and is careful about the people she works with. Please note that an ARC was generously provided in exchange for an honest review of which this is both honest and completely voluntary.
There's nothing wrong about using a familiar motif, but this trickster tale has little wit, and the conclusion just seems convenient rather than surprising. Some moments can last forever, while others slip away in the blink of an eye.
