Good news for anyone feeling guilty about the size of their carbon footprint due to the fleet of personalised Hummers. Boffins from Nasa have discovered water in a soil sample from Mars.
Those crazy eggheads have even had a taste of the Martian H2O and by all accounts it tastes pretty good. Nasa have decided to extend the Mars Rover mission by five weeks in the hope of discovering if the Red Planet has the basic raw materials to support life.
But that seems secondary at this point in time. The discovery of water on Mars means that we can now enjoy the destruction of the Earth through pollution guilt free and safe in the knowledge that we'll be sipping Martian mineral water at our dinner parties for years to come.
