NASA responsible for Global Warming..

Before I discuss this let me tell you it is just a JOKE. So please don't lift those arms and come to kill me. So we ...a couple of friends..strayed into finding reasons for global warming and one of them said NASA is responsible. According to him, when we send the space ships out, we lose a loss of weight, and that increases the gravitational pull that the sun exerts over our dear earth. And our orbit becomes a few kilometers shorter bringing us closer to sun, and closer to Venus..which is hot. So he is of the opinion that meteors striking earth and staying put here prevent such thing. As usual I did not agree...I felt centrifugal force should be working pushing the earth outwards and if at all, we are warmer because it is Jupiter's gravitational pull we are experiencing now. In either case, NASA became the scapegoat. I know it was just a fun talk but afterwards when I thought about it I found reasoning there. Problem is, I don't know which of us is right, because both sides of the argument seem to be ok. Have you ever faced a situation in which both sides of the argument seem reasonable, and you are forced to think more and some more till you are convinced that only one of the two situations is correct.

Actually NASA is one of the few agencies that seems to be very concerned about the state of the planet and is researching the topic of Global Warming and how to resolve it.

It is not often I think so much, but yes, I always have to look at both of the sides and consider they may indeed be both correct. My elderly mother always says it is the fault of the satellites and all that is put up in space for our planets problems.

To be honest, my friend made sense, though he was just saying it to sound intelligent and he was laughing all the while. Honestly, that is all we can do when none of the governments address population related issues out here. But there is some logic in there, and in my argument too, wouldn't you agree? :)

OMG! I am extremely glad this is a joke! *DE laughs wildly at the implications of either theory being correct!* Yes, it happens every once in a while when people are disagreeing about something, vanny... I try to be fair to both sides, but one usually has the more logical argument going for him/her. When I reach the conclusion needed to steer me towards the correct one, I usually step in with my own opinions added to that person's arguments.

Both arguements do sound good but they are both probably wrong.
