I was hoping of a much reliable reference, like a scientific journal or an astronomical fact sheet... Like you said, media isnt very credible. Me too. Sorry I cited something without more substance.

Sun fuels global warming debate By Helen Briggs BBC News Online The Sun's role in climate change has been called into question again. Climate science wrestles with uncertainty A US scientist has cast doubt on the controversial idea that the Sun has been the main contributor to climate change over the past 20 years. The Sun is known to brighten and fade from time to time, influencing temperatures on Earth. Scientists are divided over how significant a factor this is compared with what people are doing to the planet. A recent study suggests the Sun has brightened steadily over the past 20 years,...

To me it gives some validity to the idea that the sun plays a bigger factor in our warming than we originally thought...not saying that humans dont; just that there may be bigger factors to consider in the debate...

When I read this topic, it reminded me of a "segment" I watched a while back. The entire film is actually in 6 segments.. I found this segment on Google here called: Space - New Worlds I am sure the sun plays in part of why Earth & Mars is getting warmer.. as shown in this interesting video.. But I am still on the side of cleaning our act up on earth (it is loooong over due) .. afterall, we still have to breath. It's not like we can hop on a space craft and jet over to another planet any time soon.

FACTS: Earth's hastened global warming comes from manily human activity (e.g. air pollution) Mar's global warming is from natural dust storms -But IF it is true that the sun's cycle induces increased temperature, then earth and mars must not be the only ones affected by this phenomenon. Have they studied our nearest neighbor, the moon? How about mercury, ceres, or sedna? This claim is so... bah... Sorry jpjoe, but neither of the above 'facts' are actually facts; they are unproven hypothesese. (and in the case of the former one, a highly politicised hypothesis). This hpyothesis of warming on Ma... [More]

so is it just earth having problems or is it other planets too? Its everywhere I know who to blame too.....
Comment icon #27 Posted by cerberusxp on 12 May, 2007, 18:14
I blame the Democrats!!! No seriously, it is happening to all the planets check out interplanetary day after tomorrow. HAVE A WONDERFULL SUMMER!!

I think its the same reasons,but we are helping to increase the warming up faster than its natural proceeding. In the end of Ice Age the Earth wasn't having so much pollution than nowadays and the ice melted in the same way but slower,its a natural cycle,like the seasons but in a large duration. Sorry but you are dead wrong about man causing global warming. Just one volcano eruption exudes much more than man does in 50 yrs. Sure we contribute but for us to effect it or try to slow it. Here is a FACT "if we were to quit every thing around the world producing green house gas today in, 50 yr,s fr... [More]

isnt global warming cyclic. (i cant spell) It happens goes away happens agian I mean the dinosuars lived for however millions of years im sure the would have been climate change too. But was it caused by them no i dont think so. We arm we cool we warm we cool. life just has to adjust i guess. I think we want to blame ourselves because we can comprehend (spelling?) ourselves. I mean we can control us the human race with stopping pollution etc. But like said earlier there is something bigger here.
