Climate Change On Jupiter – Who’s Been Generating CO2 There Al?

Published by at 9:18 am under All General Discussions,Global Warming

It seems someone has been generating so much CO2 on planet Earth that it is causing global warming on Jupiter!

For about 300 years Jupiter’s banded atmosphere has shown a remarkable feature to telescopic viewers, a large swirling storm system known as The Great Red Spot. In 2006, another red storm system appeared, actually seen to form as smaller whitish oval-shaped storms merged and then developed the curious reddish hue. Now, Jupiter has a third red spot, again produced from a smaller whitish storm. All three are seen in this image made from data recorded on May 9 and 10 with the Hubble Space Telescope’s Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2. The spots extend above the surrounding clouds and their red color may be due to deeper material dredged up by the storms and exposed to ultraviolet light, but the exact chemical process is still unknown. For scale, the Great Red Spot has almost twice the diameter of planet Earth, making both new spots less than one Earth-diameter across. The newest red spot is on the far left (west), along the same band of clouds as the Great Red Spot and is drifting toward it. If the motion continues, the new spot will encounter the much larger storm system in August. Jupiter’s recent outbreak of red spots is likely related to large scale climate change as the gas giant planet is getting warmer near the equator.

This is actually not the first report of ‘global warming’ on other planets, we had linked to another story last year as well:

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.

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.

Since there is no known life on Mars it suggests rapid changes in planetary climates could be natural phenomena.

Emphasis mine.  Now let me be clear here an relative sizes of the planets.  Mars is half the size of Earth and 50% farther from the Sun.  So it should not warm faster than Earth, except Earth has a cooling atmosphere which allows it to deal with any external increase in radiative energies – especially at certain wavelengths. The Martian atmosphere is much thinner and made up of different gases, so it is possible some change in output in the Sun could have effected Mars more than Earth.  But there is no way Earth caused anything on Mars to happen, so the global warming hitting the two planets clearly is (a) natural and (b) not due to CO2 levels – which has been shown to be the case scientifically (see chart below).

OK, what about Jupiter? Well Jupiter is massive.  It has a diameter 11 times that of Earth and it is 300 times farther away from the Sun.  Which is a telltale that this is warming could be due to Solar radiation.  While the much smaller and closer Earth and Mars are experiencing a more global phenomena, the massive Jupiter is only feeling the effects along its equator – where the Sun’s energy is at its maximum.  Jupiter is apparently at the magical point in distance from the Sun where the phenomena cannot cause effects at the higher latitudes, where the bend of the sphere reduces the energy flux hitting the surface (why poles are cold and equators are warm).  Farther out planets would probably not show much if any warming if the effect starts to fade at the distance of Jupiter

Mercury has no atmosphere and the atmosphere of Venus is already in a runaway green house state.  So an effect that cause atmosphere’s to warm slightly (while moons and other objects without atmosphere’s show no significant sign) would not show up on these two inner planets of our solar system.

So, the questions still stands for the Church of Global Warming according to the prophet Al Gore – who has been generating all this CO2 to cause Mars and Jupiter to be experiencing Global Warming?  Eh?  Maybe you folks can Google-Search up an explanation for us?

Well, for all of us who still believe in real science (not that pseudo science crap out of the UN) we have an opportunity to find out what really is happening here.  I said many times that the Global Warming predictions would not come true, that the dire states in 2012, 2020, etc in the global climate models would fail to arise.  Then, conveniently, the new climate models now show a ten year cooling off period coming.  Well, if we do see 10 years of cooling and this is a natural, solar based phenomena, then Mars and Jupiter should reflect that cooling -right?

Like all real scientific theories one must predict and outcome to prove it.  So I am going out on a limb here (not really, but to many it will look that way) and say we will see cooling global temperatures on Earth, matched by some return of the Mars ice caps and some reduction of Jupiter’s storms, in the next 10 years. And all of this will be due to some Solar effect, like the number and nature of sunspots

  1. Proof of global warming! On Jupiter…

    When will the Jupiterians understand they must join Kyoto?…

    OK, there is a dispute of whether it’s still a planet, but Pluto also is showing signs of global warming.

    I saw a reference to public opinion polls, on I think, which said that 86% of Americans believe in global warming and think something should be done about it. But that can mean a lot of things.

    There’s a real difference in believing in global warming and man-made global warming. But all scientific data now clearly shows the current natural warming ended about 10 years ago.
    True moonbats don’t believe that though.

  7. VinceP1974 says:

    The premise of “man-made” GW is that CO2 buildup in the air leads to higher temps.

    The real data shows that historically CO2 increases in the air FOLLOWED tempature increases.

    So now we have two fatal flaws to Manmade GW… the temps aren’t going up… and the CO2 increase does not cause temps go up.. and in any case, the CO2 level is still increasing.. so why isn’t the temp rising?

    Do these facts register to the idiots in Washington? Nope.

    I swear, our governemnt is run by complete imbeciles.

    According to the experts, “Jupiter’s recent outbreak of red spots is likely related to large scale climate change as the gas giant planet is getting warmer near the equator.”

    By the time taxes can be raised high enough to put a check on this phenomenon, the polar bears of Jupiter may already be extinct.
