Mars

Using ground penetrating radar, NASA has discovered an ice deposit at Mars' south pole so large that if melted, it would cover the entire planet under 30 feet of water...... ........FUCK! Global warming has struck Mars.

Now, now, they didn't say it WAS melting, only that if it DID melt it would have that effect.

In other words, Mars doesn't have global warming, instead it's a victim of global cooling.

Well, that and that it's further away from the sun than the Earth, has lower gravity than the earth, it's winters are twice as long as the earth's, and it's atmosphere is about 10% as dense as the earth's.

Result -- it's freaking cold there most of the time.

On the other hand, this does provide a nice supply of water for any human explorer that happens to reach Mars, you know, to put up a research base or something.

You do realize that we used to live on Mars? After fucking it up because of CO2 emissions, we had to abandon the whole fucking planet.
