Jovian Warmening Update

From New Scientist:

The storms appeared during a dramatic, planet-wide disturbance on Jupiter that is ongoing. The cause of the disturbance has yet to be explained, but it has changed the colour of some of the planet’s stripes.

“It’s pretty clear that there’s a lot going on in Jupiter’s atmosphere right now – much more than usual – and these storms are probably tied in with that so-called global upheaval,” says co-author Imke de Pater of the University of California in Berkeley, US.

I blame SUVs. It’s either that or Monoliths.

    P.S. I blame Al Gore.

    Could it be Jupiter’s still dealing with heat generated by the comet impacts?

  3. Stephen Green Says:

    I had monoliths once. The antibiotics cleared them right up.

    Maybe AlGore has visited Jupipter?
    On the way to a probe of Uranus?
    Or, is off to console Pluto on the loss of planetary status?

    Al Gore causes unusual *cooling*. I bet if we shipped him out there, he’d have Jupiter back to normal with a couple of days.

    Let’s get NASA on it right away!

    Rosignol: Let’s make sure NASA knows it’s a ‘one-way’ ticket only, please…

    ….he’s holding a press conference or seminar.

    Let’s also send an entourage of not-too-bright reporters and other private-jet users with him.

    It’s probably being caused by all of the additional hurricanes that are caused by the warmening. No wait, it’s being caused by the fact that fewer hurricanes are happening due to warmening…I’m sooooooo confused!

    Perhaps the best solution for global warming is that deep freeze between Shrillary’s thighs.
