We are pretty preoccupied with climate change on this planet these days. This week the Climate Week is taking place in New York City, partly preparing for the big Copenhagen meeting in December where we hope to get the replacement of the Kyoto Agreement in place. (I said HOPE).

I always say I do not discriminate against any of the planets including planet Earth. NASA must have the same philosophy. Look at this awesome study of the changing climate of Mars all revealed by laser techniques. :-)
