Climate change hits Mars

TimesOnline reported Mars is being hit by rapid climate change and it is happening so fast that the red planet could lose its southern ice cap, writes Jonathan Leake.
Drowning all of the martian polar bears and flooding cities by 20 feet, according to Gore.
Scientists from Nasa say that Mars has warmed by about 0.5C since the 1970s. This is similar to the warming experienced on Earth over approximately the same period.
But don't tell our scientists that.
Since there is no known life on Mars it suggests rapid changes in planetary climates could be natural phenomena.
Perhaps even the same planetary climate changes facing earth, or do the non-existent martians drive too many SUVs?
The mechanism at work on Mars appears, however, to be different from that on Earth. One of the researchers, Lori Fenton, believes variations in radiation
Coming from the same Sun that shines on earth
and temperature across the surface of the Red Planet are generating strong winds.
