Saturn in the Balance

Saturn Storm

Astronomers are puzzling over images of what appears to be a giant hurricane-like storm on Saturn’s south pole. At five thousand miles wide, the storm is much larger than earth hurricanes. It also doesn’t move.

The astrophysicists at NASA may not yet know what caused this storm, but I already have it figured out: Since scientists haven’t seen a storm like this on Saturn before now, it must be something new. Therefore, it must be the result of global warming on Saturn. This proves that there are humans on Saturn, since we know that human activity is the only possible cause of global warming on any planet.

We can’t wait for further scientific study. Action must be taken on this now, before it’s too late. Since humans are obviously causing global warming on Saturn, someone needs to go there to show them the error of their ways. Who could be better than Earth’s foremost expert on global warming? Maybe he could even make a sequel…

    Unfortunately, many of us (including “the Earth’s foremost expert on global warming”) jump to erroneous conclusions too quickly. Just because the nation’s most vulnerable city finally got nailed by a semi-strong hurricane does not mean that humans are maliciously manipulating the atmosphere (I mean come on… everyone and their dog knew it was only a matter of time before the Sodom of the South met its Biblical fate). Similarly, just because the author of this blog has photographed his flushing toilet does not mean global warming is occurring on Saturn.

    Geez I signed up jis to leave a comment.

    I couldn’t agree MORE with the author.

    “We (scientists, er… how about earthlings) don’t know enough to know that we don’t know” anything about global (er… planetary or maybe solar system or maybe galactical) warming.
