Global warming on Mars and changes in solar activity

Most people don't pay attention to what is going on with our lifesource...the sun. It appears that not only the Earth is undergoing climate changes, but also Mars. While the focus in the mainstream media is always on environmental issues and blaming humans for these changes, the problem may be bigger than anything we can imagine. Things we can't do a damn thing about.

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,
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.

Global Warming is indeed a complex phenomena... otherwise we'd fully understand it by now. It also isn't *all* our fault - though we are significant players and we can do something about it. All we need is the will to do so.

This will probably happen after a few climate related disasters. Hopefully before too many people die.

The environmentalist yahoos resemble religious fundamentalists in a lot of ways. The most striking is how the Apocalypse serves as an idee fixe.

They both predict the world is going to end over and over and again. Now matter how many failed predictions they make-- Jimmah Carter claiming the United States was going to run out of energy in 1990, to Paul Ehrlich's claims that the United States will be dying of thirst in 1984, no one holds them accountable.

They simply throw contradictory evidence down the memory hole, since the jihad against capitalism and corporate greed^tm cannot be jettisoned.
