6. Is it really ice made of H2O or just something that looks like ice?

And what does this mean?

Is Mars earth after global warming???

7. Ice isn't necessarily water ice.

However, in the little snippet from NASA someone posted above, it was stated that this is a picture of water ice.

Earth after global warming? They're two different planets. All it means is that there's water on Mars (which does mean quite a lot, in fact).

9. While it is a good picture .....

It is well-known that water ice exists on Mars in large quantities.
