Somehow, Humans Must Be to Blame

Full story here.

The first images of Jupiter since it came out from behind the sun show that the turbulence and storms that have plagued the planet for the past two years continue. Whether or not this is a sign of global warming, the turbulence does seem to be spawning new spots.

...

According to Philip S. Marcus, a professor of fluid dynamics at UC Berkeley, analysis of the Hubble and Keck images may support his 2004 conjecture that Jupiter is in the midst of global climate change that will alter temperatures by as much as 10 degrees Celsius, getting warmer near the equator and cooler near the south pole. He predicted that large changes would start in the southern hemisphere around 2006, causing the jet streams to become unstable and spawn new vortices.

Is everything to be "a sign of global warming" from now on? Has it become the only explanation for all phenomena?

Yes.

Yes.

Yes. Just as "God" is an explanation to the religious mind, so "global warming" is an explanation to the environmentalist mind.

This only strengthens the likelihood that the sun is responsible for Earth's 'global warming'.

Global warming is bad, the sun causes global warming, ipso facto destroy the sun!

I wasn't planning to post this one, but since you bring it up, here's Step 1 on the way to eliminating the blight on the precious environment that is Old Sol.

As a result, the team could not recommend sunshade geoengineering as an alternative to the reduction of carbon emissions. This is even before the high cost and possible ethical considerations of a sunshade geoengineering scheme have been considered.

What, you mean we couldn't mitigate those costs with sunshade credits? Like, I could wear sunglasses and pretend it's sunny...every little thing helps, right?

Well, humans have sent 2 probes into the planets atmosphere... (well, one probe and the orbiter that delivered the probe)
