An Inconvenient Detail

Christina Bellantoni, "Democrats want Capital Hill as a 'green' beacon for planet," The Washington Times (March 3, 2007):
Democratic leaders yesterday called for the "greening" of buildings on Capital Hill, saying politicians have the responsibility to preserve the planet. Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has led a charge to fight global warming, and other top Democrats wrote a letter to the chief administrative officer of the House asking him to embark on a "Green the Capital" initiative.
Kate Ravilious, "Mars Melt Hints at Solar, Not Human, Cause for Warming, Scientist Says," National Geographic News (February 28, 2007):
Simultaneous warming on Earth and Mars suggests that our planet's recent climate changes have a natural—and not a human- induced—cause ... In 2005 data from NASA's Mars Global Surveyor and Odyssey missions revealed that the carbon dioxide "ice caps" near Mars's south pole had been diminishing for three summers in a row.
