Mars Demystified

For anyone wondering, as I was a few weeks ago, about what was causing climate change on Mars, the folks at RealClimate.org have answers. It seems that hemispheric dust storms, orbital eccentricity and, of course, the peculiar topography near the south pole are the culprits here. So there. No, really. And RealClimate's a fascinating site, to boot.
