Too Darn Hot

Chimpy McHilterBurton's failure to sign the Kyoto Treaty is now having interplanetary repercussions:

Close inspections of Red Spot Jr., in Hubble images released today, reveal that similar to the Great Red Spot, the more recently developed storm rises above the top of the main cloud deck on Jupiter.

Little is known about how storms form on the giant planet. They are often described as behaving similar to hurricanes on Earth. Some astronomers believe that the spots dredge up material deep below Jupiter's clouds and lift it to where the Sun's ultraviolet light chemically alters it to give it a red hue.

The latest images could provide evidence that Jupiter is in the midst of a global change that can modify temperatures by as much as 10 degrees Fahrenheit on different parts of the globe.

Is it not enough that this man has to kill our own planet? Must he take out the rest of the solar system as well?

It is due to Karl Rove's space-based mind control ray.
