Pluto Warming

Hubble sees Pluto changing color, ice sheet cover

WASHINGTON — Spurned Pluto is changing its looks, donning more rouge in its complexion and altering its iceball surface here and there.

“It’s a little bit of a surprise to see these changes happening so big and so fast,” said astronomer Marc Buie of the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colo. “This is unprecedented.”

Could it be that global warming includes cosmic factors as well? There are many variables worth considering. Sun spot history, solar wind, solar flares, axis tilt.

The Ice Age in Maine illustrates that geologically speaking, the earth’s crust is still in recovery from the 1.5 mile sheet of ice that covered Maine 25,000 years ago.

Global warming has many factors, variables and influences. No single one is the unifying answer.
