WINNING EDITORIAL: GLOBAL WARMING BY CLAUDE G. CAZANAVE

I am a physicist and have worked on spacecraft design for over 30 years.

The space environment is a major design consideration for spacecraft life.

No global warming arguments both pro and con have mentioned that ALL the planets in our solar system are heating up, especially noticeable with the severely shrunken polar ice caps on the planet Mars. Everyone can agree that we can affect the heating of all the planets in our solar system. What is the real cause of this solar system heating? The sun? That would be easy enough to measure, so I assume that is not the problem. To find the solution you have to consider the entire solar systems place in our galaxy “The Milky Way”, which is a swirling collection of Billions of Stars.

As the galaxy rotates the solar system could be entering areas of higher energy and temperatures. This could be causing the increase in solar system temperatures  global warming arguments both pro and con have mentioned that ALL the planets in our solar system are heating up, especially noticeable with the severely shrunken polar ice caps on the planet Mars.
