Fun fact: Earth is the only planet we know that can sustain fire.

Other planets certainly have magma and volcanic activety, but none can sustain fire as none have sources of fuel like we do.

Actually, there's plenty of fuel (methane, ethane, etc.), but there's no free oxygen.

If they are Windows-based, you have little to worry about; they will be slow, muddled, and prone to crashing.

If they are xNix-based, no worries, they will be uncooperative and primitive, with very quirky behavior.

RE: The elegant nature of science
Quick question.
While I have no doubt that the global warming thing is a result of humans polluting the earth even though people are too pig headed to see it, has anyone explored the possibility that the sun is expanding and thus getting closer to the earth and thus more heat is reaching us as we are a bigger target (being closer rather then further out)?

Humans have the technology now to measure the moons distance from us at better than cm accuracy. Teams of scientists whose main task is observing and understanding the sun, it's behaviour, how much energy it produces, what wavelengths, etc...

Someone would have mentioned it by now if the sun was sending more energy in the direction of the earth.

If you only look at the suns solar input we are currently in a slight cooling trend.

The only place I can find claims of increased solar energy input is the climate denial websites. I have no idea from where they base the facts. Looks like it's all fabricated.
