Will Martians have to vacate their own planet?
It must be extremely hot on Mars
By Dr. Klaus L.E. Kaiser
Some 95% of the atmosphere of Mars is said to be comprised of that so-called greenhouse gas, CO2, that has been claimed by some scientists (and politicians) to drive this planet’s temperature to record highs.
You might be forgiven to think, therefore, that the “air” temperatures on Mars would be extremely hot.
Nothing to fear though, despite that CO2 level being over 2,000 times higher on Mars than on Earth, the claimed effect of CO2 on temperature appears to exist on earth only.
The day-time temperatures on the surface of Mars are quite comparable to that here (around 50 F). The nights though are a bit colder on Mars at MINUS 110 F, or so.
That observation alone ought to set you on the right path forward, i.e. Cap &Trade, is an absolute Must!
Clearly then, upon arrival on the Red Planet, one of your first tasks must be to properly educate the Martians about the dangers of climate change from all that carbon dioxide in their atmosphere. Cap[ping] of CO2 (not just in Martian polar dry-ice caps) and Trade of the “carbon menace,” preferably with other inter-galactic communities must become an important cornerstone of their future wellbeing.
Obviously, without a solution to that CO2 problem on Mars, the Martians may just have to vacate their own planet and move on to a more hospitable place themselves.
