Hysterical Libs: Man Causing Climate Change... on Moon
That sounds like a joke, but for the Left, it's an all-too-serious discussion already taking place.
Don't expect raging wildfires, more powerful hurricanes, and rising sea levels, but – gasp – a slightly warmer surface temperature than when mankind first visited 50 years ago.
Earthly visitors today can expect a balmy 260 degrees Fahrenheit in sunlight and -280 degrees F when the sun goes down.
Per Business Insider:
Newly discovered temperature data from the 1970s moon landings, released in the Journal of Geophysical Research in April, reveals that NASA astronauts probably warmed up the moon’s surface temperature by as much as 6 degrees Fahrenheit by walking around and poking into the lunar surface.
The data comes from so-called heat-flow experiments that were installed on the moon in 1971 and 1972 during the Apollo 15 and Apollo 17 missions. For the experiments, astronauts on each mission drilled two holes into the surface of the moon at depths ranging from 3.2 feet to 7.5 feet deep. The astronauts inserted fiberglass tubes into the holes and plopped platinum thermometers inside to read the temperatures at varying depths below the moon’s surface. Those probes beamed the temperature data to Earth in near real time.
And there it is. Man-made climate change on the moon.
Maybe we can send Al Gore there.
