Mars, too, appears to be enjoying more mild and balmy temperatures.
In 2005 data from NASA's Mars Global Surveyor and Odyssey missions revealed that the carbon dioxide "ice caps" near Mars's south pole had been diminishing for three summers in a row.
Habibullo Abdussamatov, head of space research at 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.
Abdussamatov believes that changes in the sun's heat output can account for almost all the climate changes we see on both planets.
Mars and Earth, for instance, have experienced periodic ice ages throughout their histories.

I look forward to this being covered on the MSM.
Our sun is slowly expanding as predicted.
Albore will soon explain to us how this is caused by SUV's on earth.
Preaching to the choir.
I don't believe tht there are any Freepers who actually believe Mr. Gore's Global Warming Fantasy.
It must be because of all those SUV's that are up there.
i've forwarded this article and similar ones, and the link to the 'great global warming swindle' movie (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XttV2C6B8pU) to everyone i know
do it now, and ask your friends to forward too
it is amazing what the internet can do to undermine the socialist agenda of the msm
combine this info with comparisons of temperature and sunspot activity and it becomes pretty clear that the sun is the culprit.
That will be the last government grant he ever gets...
Maybe Al should start selling Solar Credits.
We could buy cold credits from Alaska and sell them in Florida.
makes as much sense as buying carbon credits from the third world.
You may want to read that article a little more critically. Most of the data used is based on computer simulations. You can get any result you want in a computer simulation by modifying your inputs.
And how do the authors explain Mars warming?
a red herring, and a disgusting attempt to cover tracks
it is not the sun's apparent 'brightness' that has changed, it is the sun's increased output of cosmic rays that has warmed our solar system
how such morons ignore that the earth moved from frozen glacial cover to warm balmy hothouse repeatedly over the millennia, all without man's help or the invention of the suv, is pure comedy
call these clowns out at every opportunity, and shut them down now
Thanks for your post. I stopped here however.
I suspect that in the case of Mr. Gore, his fascination with Global Warming and the Kyoto Protocols is consequent to an underlying belief that he (as man) is able to control it all, All, ALL !!!!
scientists believe leeches key to good health
Makes sense. That alone disqualifies it from 'serious' debate.
