    From this link, the 15th comment pretty well sums it up:

    I'm not going to address the data directly just now, because there's another problem with the "other planets are warming" argument. Here it is.

    We have a handful of probes on Mars and an orbiter. Mars is the planet we probably know the most about besides Earth. And even with that equipment we can only get the faintest idea of what's going on with the temps there on Mars. Or other planets for that matter.

    We have laughably few samples of temps on other planets as compared to the astounding array of data on our own Earthly climate trends.

    It's absurd to claim with any confidence that we know for certain that other planets or moons are warming or cooling, when we have relatively little data about them -- all the while ignoring our vast armada of land and sea-based temperature probes right here on Earth (not to mention orbiting satellites).

    Should we dismiss the data we have on our own planet's temperature trends because of a smattering of temperature measurements on any other planet? Which data-set do you think would be more reliable? The one we have here at home, of course. Because we have many, many more sources and samples, and over a longer period of time.

    We know far more about the temperature trends on our own planet than on any other planet, and yet certain people use highly questionable speculations about other planets' temperatures to try to dismiss the dta trends we see here at home.

    To use this data (or records from other planets) as reliable evidence of anything more solid than the temperature sampling we have for Earth, is on its face absurd.
    In terms of numbers measured sure... but this is reaching.

    Take pity on him, folks. He is uniquely AWFUL at arithmetic. He also thought a year-and-a-half amounted to 'several decades'. Snicker.
    You show you know nothing. By the way you should be ready for the cooling that is coming

    Sigh. Here, educate yourself:

    A weak and feeble reply on your part. You seem on the verge of giving up. You should.

    I just have to assume that you are obfuscating the issue intentionally... we both know it can't be quantified, but it has been observed.

    Weird. It worked when I first posted it. Will try to fix it later.

    What is 'it' referring to here?
