Although I do believe it is possible that the white house is doing what Hansen is saying, there is something that I still can't fathom.
They say that "it is clear that climate change is happening because of human activity".... Well, what about the global warming that is currently
happening on Mars?.... We don't have human colonies on Mars that I know of....
Global Warming on Mars?
A study of the ice caps on Mars may show that the red planet is experiencing a warming trend.
After decades of thinking that the ice caps on Mars were mostly carbon dioxide (dry ice), planetary geologists are starting to think that those caps
may be mostly fresh water ice instead.
Caltech planetary scientists have been keeping a close eye on the dozens of deep, wide pits in the southern martian ice caps. These pits have been
growing larger every year, but they never get any deeper.
One of the most profound benefits of being able to continue photographing Mars in the Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Extended Mission is the
opportunity to go back and re-image a site that was seen in the previous martian year. New MGS Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) images have provided a
startling observation: The residual martian south polar cap is changing. The fact that it is changing suggests that Mars may have major, global
climate changes that are occurring on the same time scales as Earth's most recent climate shifts, including the last Ice Age.
What about the global warming that is going on on Venus?..... No humans there either.....
Global warming isn't just restricted to Earth. Both our neighbouring planets, Venus and Mars, are warmed by the effects of greenhouse gases in their
atmospheres. In fact, from comparing these three rocky worlds, scientists have gained an invaluable insight into how the quantity of greenhouse gases
in a planet's atmosphere can radically affect the climate and surface conditions – conditions which are crucial for life.
On Earth, the majority of carbon lies not in the atmosphere, but in the oceans and rocks. Just 0.00035% of Earth's atmosphere is made of carbon
dioxide. However, this carbon dioxide, along with water vapour and other small amounts of greenhouse gasses, is enough to raise the average surface
temperature of Earth by around 30°C. Without it, Earth would be frozen.
By comparison, the atmosphere of Venus is composed of 96% carbon dioxide (260,000 times more than Earth) and is much denser, containing around 100
times more gas than Earth's. The thick dense carbon dioxide atmosphere on Venus has led to a 'run away' greenhouse effect, with surface
temperatures soaring to around 460°C, hot enough to melt lead, and three times greater than otherwise expected.
Mars too has an atmosphere made mainly of carbon dioxide (95%), but there the atmosphere is over 100 times thinner than Earth's. So even though, like
Venus, the Martian atmosphere is almost solely made of carbon dioxide, it's actually so thin that the effect of greenhouse warming lifts the global
temperature by just 6°C.
What about the reports by other scientists who are saying the Sun's activity is increasing and it is going to increase 30% to 50% starting from
2007-2008 and peak on 2012?.... I am sure 100% that there is no human life on the Sun....
Global warming and extreme climate change doesn't end with Mars, Venus and Earth. Every planet on the solar system is experiencing global warming,
and extreme climate change.
In what is largely a reversal of an August announcement, astronomers today said Pluto is undergoing global warming in its thin atmosphere
even as it moves farther from the Sun on its long, odd-shaped orbit.
Pluto's atmospheric pressure has tripled over the past 14 years, indicating a stark temperature rise, the researchers said. The change is
likely a seasonal event, much as seasons on Earth change as the hemispheres alter their inclination to the Sun during the planet's annual orbit.
They suspect the average surface temperature increased about 3.5 degrees Fahrenheit, or slightly less than 2 degrees Celsius.
Even as Pluto is moving farther away from the sun it is experiencing an exponential global warming. This tells me that the sun is not the main cause
of global warming on the Solar System. Something else is happening here.
Jupiter's New Red Spot
The official name of this storm is "Oval BA," but "Red Jr." might be better. It's about half the size of the famous Great Red Spot and almost
exactly the same color.
Oval BA first appeared in the year 2000 when three smaller spots collided and merged. Using Hubble and other telescopes, astronomers watched with
great interest. A similar merger centuries ago may have created the original Great Red Spot, a storm twice as wide as our planet and at least 300

At first, Oval BA remained white—the same color as the storms that combined to create it. But in recent months, things began to change:
"The oval was white in November 2005, it slowly turned brown in December 2005, and red a few weeks ago," reports Go. "Now it is the same color as
the Great Red Spot!"
Even Moons on the different planets are experiencing global warming, something i just found out now.
MIT researcher finds evidence of global warming on Neptune's largest moon
June 24, 1998
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- We're not the only ones experiencing global warming. A Massachusetts Institute of Technology researcher has reported that
observations obtained by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and ground-based instruments reveal that Neptune's largest moon, Triton, seems to have heated
up significantly since the Voyager space probe visited it in 1989. The warming trend is causing part of Triton's surface of frozen nitrogen to turn
into gas, thus making its thin atmosphere denser.
So what is happening in the solar system?
Are human activities causing all the global warming that the whole solar system is currently going through?.... simply put, no.
So there is something else going on that scientists like Hansen are not looking at, or don't understand and are not aware of.
So, could it be possible that there is another reason why there is this restriction on global warming on Earth?
Perhaps some of you ahve heard this before, perhaps you haven't. I have given before links and excerpts from Russian scientists, and from Nasa
itself, who both say that the solar system is passing through a cosmic cloud, and this cloud is exponentially increasing up to the year 2013, if i
remember correctly, but what is this cloud? is it just a cosmic cloud we are entering which is altering and changing our solar system?
I have my own opinion about that, but I am still not sure if it is true.
