Did anyone see the article about pictures from the Hubble Telescope that showed how the Giant Red Spot, a violent storm that has been seen on Jupiter since we have had telescopes that cold see it? Over the last 50 or so years it has shrunk to almost half its size. I was about to write a snarky article about global warming but got to thinking about something interesting.
I'm pretty sure there are no living beings on Jupiter that can be accused of changing the climate to make changes to this storm., What it does show, however, is that there are climate changes on Jupiter, Mars, Venus, etc. that probably can't be traced to anything we have any knowledge of. We can theorize but the same goes for Earth, as climate change has been going on for billions of years and millions of cycles.
Anything scientists come up with is a THEORY, here and on Jupiter, and is based purely on hypotheses. What caused the Ice Ages and the warming periods that followed? What caused all the continents to split apart and move from tropical zones to the poles and back? What caused the great extinctions? Would one huge volcanic eruption push us back to another Ice Age? There are lots of questions and lots of theories. Science is like that and the good scientists don't call any theory "Settled Science." Why even Gravity, something we have come to depend and rely on is just a Theory.
