The Martians are hot!

News in that Mars is warming of recent as well with long term studies concluding that the Mars ice caps near Mars’s south pole had been diminishing for three summers.

Not sure if long term is 3 years, but hey. As reported:

Habibullo Abdussamatov, head of the St. Petersburg's Pulkovo Astronomical Observatory in Russia, says the Mars data is evidence that the current global warming on Earth is being caused by changes in the sun.

"The long-term increase in solar irradiance is heating both Earth and Mars," he said.

Seems to agree with my analysis.

One Mars year is equal to about two earth years. So we're talking six years of wanton, unchecked destruction of pristine Martian icecaps. If Mars had seas, their levels would have already risen catastrophically.
