Is it just me or am I the only one whose starting to get pissed off at the continuing coverup by NASA and the rest of our government with regards to these kinds of monumental finds. Just what is going on in our solar system? It's about time they come clean.
I have a sinking feeling that when they do announce ET's or life on Mars, they will still be lying about what it all means. At best any disclosure will be to move towards some kind of one world government.

...this link was on Rense today, looks like legit forests, woods on Mars w/ some close-up photography. Could their conditions sustain pine tree-like growth? There is also evidence of lakes, oceans....

The mapping and spectral analysis by OMEGA has shown that the perennial deposits on the Martian South Pole are of essentially three types: water-ice mixed with carbon dioxide (CO2) ice, tens-of-kilometres-wide patches of water-ice, and deposits covered by a thin layer of CO2 ice.
The model has shown that water at the North Pole was in an unstable condition and was easily transported to the South Pole in the form of water vapour, to then re-condense and freeze on the surface. Up to 1 millimetre of water ice was deposited at the South Pole every year. After Mars has spent more than 10 000 years in that climatic configuration, this accumulation led to a layer up to 6-metre thick.
