Venus- was a major Roman goddess principally associated with love and beauty, the rough equivalent of the Greek goddess Aphrodite. She was considered the ancestor of the Roman people by way of its legendary founder, Aeneas, and played a key role in many Roman religious festivals and mythologies.
She was commonly associated with the Greek goddess Aphrodite and the Etruscan deity Turan, borrowing aspects from each. Additionally, Venus has been compared to Tlahuizcalpantecuhtli in Aztec mythology, Kukulcan in Maya mythology, Frigg and Freya in the Norse mythos, and Ushas in Vedic religion. Ushas is also linked to Venus by a Sanskrit epithet ascribed to her, vanas- ("loveliness; longing, desire"), which is cognate to Venus, suggesting a Proto-Indo-European link.

"Global wraming" does suck.
But it is not as bad as global warming.
So even the higher intelligent one of this conversation makes mistakes huh?

I was watching CNN a couple of Sundays ago and I saw a really interesting program special called
"We were warned". About the upcoming fuel problem the U.S. will be facing. One of the last segments had a story about Brazil and E-85 (ethanol) fuel. Within the next two years they claim they will be totally independant upon their own resources for fuel. During the 70's gas shortages their economy was destroyed, so the military dictatorship decided to find alternative means of fueling their cars. Oil was discovered in the 80's and 90's so it will cover their 10% fuel needs of E-85 for 1000 years. They have E-85 fueling stations all over the country. The vehicles they use can run on all E-85, partial E-85/gas or gas without having to do anything to them. It seems all that was needed was a sensor that the manufacturer provided for them.
That manufacturer?
GM was asked why they manufacture these vehicles there, yet do not make the same effort here.
Their answer was the American people are the problem, they are addicted to oil as the main fuel source.
I'm telling you, read Gore's (fat assed) book, the first one. Everything he wrote is coming to pass.
And the heads of countries and CEO's of these companies are basically qouting it's words.

Love how you incorporated the warm color of her skin into the planet. The contrast is great too, against the dark background. You never cease to amaze me with your female renderings. Great work my friend! :)
