Nasa's Mars Global Surveyor spacecraft has been working hard over the last 8 years. The amount of data, collected over time has allowed us to create
a more accurate picture of processes that have never been measured before..Before and after pictures hint at global changes in Mars' climate.
There are hints of a warming trend.
Why is Mars warming up?
Could this be related to Earth's warming trend?
The data is young, only 8 years back, so it could be a short term trend.
But what if there is something to this? What if Global warming is much less a product of man's involvement, than it is of the sun, injecting larger
amounts of energy into both weather systems?
What do we do then?
Because that means, stopping global warming on Earth, would be interfering with a natural pattern.
But letting it happen, is that better or worse?
Our comfort zones have been mapped out, for now..But they would shift.
Desert becomes grassland, Tundra becomes forest. Shorelines move inward.
Would that mean we would be FORCED to alter our climate somehow?
Just to preserve status-quo?
Is Mars telling us something?
I look forward to your thoughts on this..
