New Evidence

I watch the global warming debate with some scepticism. There is lots of hypocrisy in the debate on both sides of the issue. It's unsettling to listen to people sqawk about global warming and the reasons why we're seeing minute changes in carbon dioxide levels and changes in icecaps. Then this study comes along, from Russia:
Habibullo Abdussamatov, head of the St. Petersburg's Pulkovo Astronomical Observatory in Russia, says the Mars data is evidence that the current global warming on Earth is being caused by changes in the sun.

"The long-term increase in solar irradiance is heating both Earth and Mars," he said.
Imagine that. The sun is heating both Mars and Earth. That isn't to say we shouldn't try to conserve and that we shouldn't try to be good stewards of our earth's resources, but the fact that the sun warms the Earth, along with Mars, is certainly an Inconvenient Truth.

Hat tip to Instapundit (like he needs the link).

My brother, in Missouri, is experiencing ice storms and is wondering when that dang global warming is going to make it to his neck o' the woods.
