Temperature increase could be shrinking the planet's polar ice caps
These two views of Mars are derived from the MGS Thermal Emission Spectrometer (TES) measurements of global broadband visible and near-infrared reflectance, also known as albedo.
Also, here is another another article concerning Solar activity which rises and falls in 11-year cycles, with the next peak expected in 2011. This phenomenon has already been wreaking havoc on The Global Positioning System, which relies on for everything from navigating cars and airplanes to transferring money between banks and may be threatened by powerful solar flares.

Then, something else to throw in to think about, this video from 60 Minutes titled,
LINK: THE AGE OF WARMING
Is the planet getting warmer? If so, what might be the consequences and is man to blame? Scott Pelley travels to Chile and Antarctica, meeting with scientists and researchers who have no doubts that global warming is underway, and offer some dire predictions about what lies ahead.Changes that are taking places may be because of far more complex causes than just human carelessness (though the environmental problems are indeed very real), however, human causes play just a tiny part in these changes and it seems the forces of the cosmos have much more to do with climate changes,not only on our own planet, but other planets, as well.
