It's those crazy martians with their pollution...

Powerline posted about climate changes on Mars and it got me to thinking...if it happens where there aren't pollution causing humans, then why is it automatically humans fault where they happen to live? Like this craziness:

Britain should drastically reduce the growth of air travel to bring greenhouse gas emissions within levels that will avoid dangerous climate change, a report by leading environmental scientists said Wednesday.

Air travel has boomed in recent years thanks largely to cheaper flights, and the government predicts that the number of air passengers in Britain will more than double by 2020. But aviation is a major source of carbon dioxide, the main greenhouse gas, because planes burn huge amounts of fossil fuels at high altitudes.

The government says it wants a 60 percent cut in carbon dioxide emissions by 2050, compared to 1990 levels, as the nation's contribution toward preventing an increase in temperatures that would threaten a dangerous level of climate change.

But the Tyndall Center for Climate Change Research, which includes scientists from universities across Britain, said that target is incompatible with the current expansion rate of the aviation industry.

So once again we have people who honestly believe the world is going to slow cook itself because of human pollution. Nevermind the "Global Cooling" scare of the 70s. Why don't these people act like real scientists and continue their recordings objectively. Taking 50 years of data and trying to apply that to a several *billion* year old planet and screeching about man-made global warming makes no sense. History has shown that Earth changes it's own climate happens. Get over it.


This morning, MSN has a peek back to the sane world:

Under questioning by members of the Senate Commerce subcommittee on disaster prevention and prediction, he shrugged off the notion that global warming played a role, saying instead it was a natural cycle in the Atlantic Ocean that fluctuates every 25 to 40 years.

A refreshing moment of clarity.
