Every major scientific society is agreement and only 10% of the public doesn't think global warming is a serious problem. Despite this, the Washington Post just reported that Fred Thompson mocked the concept global warming:
"It seems scientists have noticed recently that quite a few planets in our solar system seem to be heating up a bit, including Pluto. . . . This has led some people, not necessarily scientists, to wonder if Mars and Jupiter, non signatories to the Kyoto Treaty, are actually inhabited by alien SUV-driving industrialists who run their air-conditioning at 60 degrees and refuse to recycle,"
This has been covered many many times before and yet this argument still pops up among "the best and the brightest" of us. We hope to have our own rebuttal to the all too common "global warming on mars" argument soon enough.
