Amazing what more data can do.
Isn't it?

Yes, it has been blamed. By some. But there is no evidence that it is the case.
Did you bother to read those articles?


I orignaly posted this



Climate change is happening in the whole of the solar system though, as the Sun's goes through it's cycles so does the system around it.


And for some reason you doubt the Sun's changes will effect the planets around it, or do you doubt the Sun goes through cycles?

That would be silly. It goes through a cycle that lasts about 11 years, yes. A cycle that doesn't have much of any effect on global temperatures. What other cycles are you referring to?

You said:

the Sun has been blamed for warming of Earth and other worlds
And posted links that say that is nonsense. And those articles are correct.

So what warms the Earth and other worlds then, if not the Sun?

Oh, the sun warms them. No doubt. But the Sun hasn't warmed for the past 60 years or so. If anything, it's cooled a little tiny bit. But not enough to matter.

In the meantime, each world has it's own situations; orbits, axial tilts, volcanoes, humans. All of which can affect radiative forcing without the Sun getting hotter, or colder.


But Saturn losing its rings has absolutely nothing to do with any of that.

the entire ring system will be gone in 300 million years


Well long enough to build an army that will wipe us out first.


"Water ice, along with the newly discovered organic compounds, is falling out of the rings way faster than anyone thought -- as much as 10,000 kilograms of material per second," he added


One might ask himself what the letter F in the ring system is marked about, It's almost the perfect building blocks for organic things that can dwell through our solar system ?

This is your post I replied to:

"Climate change is happening in the whole of the solar system though"

"Is it?

Of course, outer planets do have very long "years" and thus, very long seasons."

If you look back you did not quote all my post, but you know that

You should pick up Saturn by Ben Bova.

Your statement:

Perhaps I was mistaken in thinking that you were associating that "climate change" with Solar cycles. My apologies.

Perhaps I was mistaken in thinking that you were associating seasonal change with climate change. My apologies.

Well, let's hope it will not become science fact then ..

Not really a reply to the current discussion, but will saturn lose its rings in our life time?

No.

But you could have read the article linked in the OP, or the OP.

Possibly, but would rather read a response from someone who is capable of deciphering their bull# for a real answer.

I never said it did, in fact I posted this replying to a post that asked if the losing of the rings had anything to do with GW. If you read the thread you will see that and that you took that post out of context with your quote.



This is not something that just started to happen, it is more something NASA thinks it has just figured out. Climate change is happening in the whole of the solar system though, as the Sun's goes through it's cycles so does the system around it.

No problem, thank you.

What happened to the Ring around Uranus?

I didn't know it was gone, though it to be just appearing out of nowhere?

Can I throw a few more questions out there for you? NASA says it recorded sounds from Jupiter, Saturn, etc from the voyager and other probes who've been that way. Being as how there's not really a medium for sounds to travel through in space, are these representations of sound that nasa releases anywhere near acurate or exciting as they make them out to be?

The story says that some other planets may have had rings like Saturn does now, maybe only a few hundred million years ago. So Uranus may have had some nice rings not too long ago.
