Wet planet

What happened to life on Mars? Scien­tists now tell us that during the planet Mars’ 4.5 billion years of existence, the planet was wet approximately one billion years. You remember scientists, those creatures who used to inhabit our planet Earth until conservatives had them all burned at the stake.

Back to Mars, what happened to the wet planet? I’m not sure; I’m not a scientist, but I figure that there was atmospheric pollution, followed by global warming. Most Republicans on Mars called it a hoax, and the place just burned up.

Of course, burning of scientists at the stake on the planet Mars probably contributed to global warming there, too.
