Climate Change on Neptune

These thermal images taken from Neptune were taken with the VISIR instrument on ESO’s Very Large Telescope. Taken between 2006 and 2021, they show Neptune gradually cooling down, followed by a dramatic heating of its south pole in the last few years. From 2003 to 2018 Neptune’s average temperature dropped about 8 °C, and over the next three years it spiked 11 °C hotter.

  1. It’s all the SUV’s driving around on Venus. If only they had clean green energy.

  2. Like minded folks should start a GoFundMe to provide transportation via Musk’s mega rocket to Neptune of all the tree huggers, greenies, and ancillary politicians to go there to study climate change. At least a 25 year project I’m sure.
