Gulf Coast Hurricane Tracker

A single source reference on tropical weather predictions. With a traditional focus on the upper Texas and Louisiana Gulf Coast we've maintained links to track all Atlantic Basin, Caribbean and eastern Pacific storm systems. We are now expanding our view to tropical storms throughout the world intending to be a comprehensive global storm tracking resource.

Global Warming on Mars

We've discussed and joked about this in the past:

When the same effect is being seen in multiple independent locations, how can the cause be so totally different. Climate effects seen on other planets show an obvious connection to the Sun as a clear driver.

One thing that would endorse this further - we have been seeing a levelling off and possibly a cooling since 1998 that has been attributed to reduced sunspot activity. As the Sun's influence reaches these outer planets, we should start to detect the same levelling off or cooling effects that we are now experiencing.

Mars, Neptune, Jupiter and even Pluto can act as unperturbed laboratories to prove the effect that the Sun's activity has on climate independent of human influences.
