Jupiter has a Fever, Let’s Raise Awareness!

“The planet has a fever” — Albert Gore

So goes the Veep’s passionate plea to save mother Earth from pyrogenic people.

Plant a tree, drive a hybrid, don’t shop at Wal-mart, stop eating meat, replace incandescent bulbs with those corkscrew ones that contain mercury, and above all, raise awareness for our besieged planet.

Well I for one, I’m glad that the Veep and other dedicated folks are all for saving us from ourselves (though they should look in the direction of the real culprit behind global warming, or maybe not since it might hurt their eyes.)

The sad news is that now Jupiter (which so far as we know has no nasty temperature-rising human beings on it) is undergoing climate change. According to this piece,

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.

Maybe we can goad Mr. Gore and the gang to expand their horizons…
