UN Group of 77 Show Their True Colors

 

The United Nations Group of 77 developing nations has decided to remove all doubt about who and what they are and represent. Their recent elections for choosing their leader for the year of 2019 simply revealed that their unilaterally voting to sanction Israel at every turn was no accident but a well thought out, even if dripping with hatred and a jealous spite, belief that if only Israel were to be destroyed, their world would improve. Their choice of Mahmoud Abbas and the Palestinian Authority to lead their group should not be unexpected from a collection of the worlds worst run nations which are mostly led by dictatorial leaders who promise the moon and a socialist dream delivering in its place a nightmarish existence where the people remain impoverished and their lack of interest or ability for development makes their title of developing nations a laughable joke. We can understand why they have a jealousy dripping with hatred for Israel as just sixty or so years ago Israel was an agrarian culture and economy just as undeveloped as their nations and is now one of the leading nations in technology in fields from agriculture to medicine to computers and on to almost any field one might care to mention. They see the wealth of Israel as something stolen from them because they were equal with Israel sixty years ago and now Israel is a wealthy nation so their question is from where did that wealth derive? Their leaders claim that it was gained through stealing the raw materials and cheating the other developing nations’ ability to develop. Israel, according to their leadership, took all the available materials and wealth without sharing any with the other developing nations thus the Israeli wealth was stolen from the rest of the world which Israel left behind. These are the same nations who also claim that the United States has stolen their wealth by becoming so wealthy such that they are left with nothing.

 

One may ask where does their mindset come from? It is steeped in jealousy, anti-capitalist agendas and, as far as Israel is concerned, anti-Semitism. Even when it comes to the United States, many claim that the reason for American wealth is those Jews stealing from the rest of the world and there is always that canard that the Jews actually run the United States and even Europe or even the world, which is quite interesting for a group which does not even make up one-half-of-one-percent of the world population. But as between Israel and the United States one has included three-quarters or more of the world Jewish populations, thus it must be the Jew’s fault that these developing nations are so poor. It has nothing to do with their leaders who live the good life, are driven around in new Mercedes or similar make of vehicle, eat lavishly and many have stashed away millions of dollars and Euros in Swiss accounts. This is something Mahmoud Abbas can give lessons as he has stolen billions from the inflow of monies the world lavishes on the Palestinian Authority (see graph below). If these nations ever realized the reality that the Palestinian Arabs receive such a disproportionate amount of international aid monies, which could be distributed to these developing nations, then with decent leadership, this could change their plot in life. Many of these nations will never realize, as they are fed a constant diet of propaganda about how the rest of the world mistreats them and steals from them, that nations such as India, South Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong and even China succeeded facing similar difficulties and starting points.

What did these developing nations have which changed them from agricultural undeveloped countries into some of the strongest economies in the world? It is actually what they did not have. They all rejected the concept that the developed world could never compete with the established nations and thus required a special form of governance where everyone was given a piece of the pie and was cared for by the government. Further, they also rejected central economic planning and the purely socialist model and instead adopted a free market and took on the established nations by playing the same game as the developed world used to make its fortunes. Their economies and governance were both bottom up and rejected top down autocracies. They had faith that their people would choose wisely and development could be grown naturally and would only be harmed by the stock underdeveloped world practice of socialism and top down planned economies. The nations which went from developing world, which is another name for undeveloped world, to first rate economic powers did it exactly the same way the United States and Europe had attained their economic might, free markets, open competition, low taxes on companies and investments, and an accepting system allowing for developed nations to seek these locations for their own expansionist enterprises. They also had legal systems which were well managed and guarded against corruption and refused to nationalize any sector of the economy when it began to flourish in order to distribute their accumulated gains while taking a leader’s share off the top. When countries nationalize an industry, this makes others very wary of investing or placing their resources within such a nation as they see the governance as threatening to their success. Allowing the wealth to grow naturally is the solution which took many nations from undeveloped to developed.

 

This was also the route taken by Israel. Truthfully, Israel has an advantage which many nations were not privileged to acquire. The Arabs throughout much of the MENA* world forced their Jews to flee either by edict, persecution or passing laws which denied the Jews equal rights in many areas of which legal rights was almost always one of the first stripped leaving Jews with no recourse were somebody to steal their property. The Jews were also refused entry to many of the world’s nations unless they had a relative who would sign for responsibility for them financially. Thus, most of these Jews ended up in the one nation which would accept them penniless or wealthy just because they were Jews, Israel. Many of these Jews were tradesmen such as tailors and other trades. This added to the developing cities in Israel but Israel remained largely agrarian until the Jews finally were granted permission to leave the Soviet Union. Then came an influx of people who had even the slightest attachment to being Jewish but had a Jewish grandparent to people who were fervently Jewish and had been persecuted for practicing their religion. But all of the Jews with varying attachments to the faith did have something else in common; they were largely highly educated. These were scientists, physicians, mathematicians, computer programmers, electrical engineers and a plethora of other skills. This was the secret which launched Israel to the forefront of technology in numerous fields. What was even more of an aid was many were professors with the skill of teaching the next generations. Would Israel have made it to a developed nation without this quirk of fate? Probably, it just would have taken somewhat longer. Israel had the right governance and only required time and giving up on some of its most socialist programs which actually impeded such growth.

 

There is another thing which has made Israel reviled by the less wealthy nations of the Group of 77, the same reason that the United States also has received such rough treatment in the United Nations and elsewhere, the fact that both nations attempt to assist these developing nations by sharing technology and other forms of aid. This results in the opprobrium because such aid only reinforces the helplessness felt by the people and this is stoked by their leaders as further proof that Israel and the United States are stealing their wealth. These leaders have to have a scapegoat to cover for their skimming off much of the aid wealth themselves. We have talked about the agricultural aid Israel shares with Africa but it is worth noting it again with two articles, first Top 22 ways Israel aided Africa in last three years and How Israel is redefining foreign aid for the 21st century. If you think these articles come from some slanted sources, that is fine, please check out their claims independently. Israel has a different idea about how to assist the third world nations. It often demands that they perform their work after bypassing these nation’s governments and taking the aid directly to the people. This is largely true on how Israel gives agricultural aid. Israeli agricultural aid does not consist of sending boatloads of food to the developing nations knowing that such aid, if it ever reaches the people, undermines the development of their economies, as their base economy is agricultural; so sending food undercuts the farmers by lowering the price of food. Instead, Israel works with the farmers and the villages which are off the beaten path, so to speak, and shows them the means for improving both their yield and the quality of their production. They introduce modern means of plowing and irrigating as well as providing seeds for crops which are hardier and better suited to their use. These are natural seeds so that the farmers will have seeds for the next year’s planting as they have not been engineered like hybrid seeds but instead raised through selective breeding in order to produce a normal plant with not only healthier plants but also the seeds for the ensuing years will continue to have these advantages. Israel provides instruction to medical personnel on new techniques and often brings patients to Israel for treatment when necessary. Israel also sets up new departments for these trained medical personnel in their hospitals including all the modern equipment required. The leader in this field is SACH (Save a Child’s Heart) which has given needed help to children from throughout the world as well as training and setting up departments in numerous nations and hospitals. Lastly, there is the IDF team which is dispatched to numerous, but not quite every, disaster zone after anything has gone horribly wrong from natural disasters such as typhoons, earthquakes etc. to nuclear disasters and anything else under the sun which is evidenced by the below map which shows Israeli disaster relief worldwide (for an interactive version of the map click here and an article click here). As is evidenced, Israeli aid has reached every corner of the globe. The map shows only official aid sent by the Israeli government and does not include aid by private institutions and other Israeli efforts. But this aid has not improved the voting record of many of the nations who have received lifesaving aid sent by Israel. This is because governments of the United Nations Group of 77 often are not representative of its people. Actually, these governments have an intense and visceral hatred of Israel because of the assistance Israel has provided simply because they realize that the people might wonder how it is that the tiny little nation of Israel travels halfway around the globe and offers aid, assistance, training, sharing technology and other vital services and their government does nothing.

Israelis do not expect the world to change from the way it is. Israel certainly does not expect the United Nations Group of 77 to alter their voting to condemn Israel at every opportunity to change. Israelis likely believe that the United Nations Group of 77 has chosen their representative well. A President of a non-country who steals aid monies and diverts contracts to his sons enriching the family and ignoring the people except to offer them money if only they will murder Israelis is likely just representative of the governing leaders of these countries. The truth be told, Israel does not expect very much if anything from the United Nations. Many Israelis would probably tell you that they believe that Israel should simply pull their Ambassador to the United Nations and resign as the institution is next to worthless. These Israelis should fear not as within a short period, ten to twenty years at the most, the United Nations General Assembly with vote to revoke the United Nations recognition of Israel and demand that Israel leave the community of nations, they like giving the membership to the United Nations an important ring to it, community of nations. This will force a vote to be taken in the Security Council over whether or not to expel Israel revoking her membership in the club. Depending on how far the United States has slid farther to the left, thus no longer proffering Israel their protective veto, the Security Council is very likely to confirm the General Assembly request and expel Israel. The only thing we have against this finality is that Israel still bothering to remain a member and not simply leaving of her own volition. It is difficult to name any United Nations agency which has not decided that Israel is the most vile and hateful nation in the world with one sparkling exception, there was the time that United Nation’s World Health Organization recognized the Israeli army’s field hospital, which is regularly sent abroad to provide aid at natural disaster sites, as “the number one in the world”, which says it all in a sentence from the article itself. Well, even the United Nations gets it right once in a while, or wrong depending on what your opinion is of Israel. As they say, even a broken clock is right twice a day.

How Trump Wall will be Effectively Destroyed

 

Even should United States President Trump get his giant wall along the border with Mexico, it might not last past 2019. Even should President Trump be reelected, whenever a President decides to welcome open borders takes office, they could sign the United States onto a very bad idea which has been thought out with great detail and is very popular because it will destroy the Western World. The reason behind what appears to be complete lunacy is, of course, the United Nations. What the world’s foremost thinkers located at Turtle Bay (UN) have discovered is yet another ‘Human Right,’ that of being permitted to live wherever they desire and be a citizen of whatever nation they wish to settle in as well as a citizen of the world, which is what this really all about. Borders, we don’t need no stinkin’ borders, or so says the United Nations. But fear not, they are not going to force this down our throats quite yet. Thus far, the only leaders unwilling to go along are US President Donald Trump and Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban, which puzzles us, as we would definitely pray that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu would also be wise enough to refuse to even consider such, let alone sign Israel on to it. The United Nations current plan is to slowly have this concept seep into the consciousness of the people of the world such that it slowly erodes their resistance and turns lunacy into something for which people will say, ‘yea, that sounds like a nice idea.’ We here will be a little harder a nut to crack as we are really set in our beliefs and know that for Israel such an idea is tantamount to suicide, which is probably partly why the Muslim world thinks this is a great idea.

 

So, allow us to think this through and see what would be the ramifications. Let us assume that the United Nations at some future date has gotten this passed through the Security Council sneaking it past any Russian or Chinese or even British veto, as we suspect there could be an American President who would love this idea, like most Democrats and the rest of the world might be fine with no borders. We would suspect that someone, if not the government, in Britain would find some way of destroying the functionality of the Chunnel (the England to France tunnel under the English Channel) thus cutting England off from the continent making it a sea voyage to reach the British Isles. By this time, it is conceivable that California will have ceded from the Union declaring themselves a nation if only to erase their debts. Knowing the mindset of the majority of Californians, they would already have open borders to the south and closed borders with the rest of the United States to prevent their own citizens who might still have ten cents to tax from fleeing to someplace more closely in touch with sanity. The people in North Korea will never be told that they can leave, so their borders probably will remain uncrossed. China will, providing they allow migration, no longer have a population problem, as many of the wealthy who conduct international businesses will simply relocate their headquarters as soon as they are permitted to do so. Europe will be inundated to the point that a large percentage of the population across the entire length and breadth of Europe will be Muslims from the Middle East and Northern Africa. Central Africa will no longer be facing near as many terrorist difficulties as many of those very terrorists will have relocated to Europe. Providing the United States is still adopting this oh so wonderful idea, there will be a new national language, Spanish. The good news is that the nation will still be Christian with a far higher percentage of Catholics. Canada will be more heavily populated and gain greatly in its population’s percentage of the world’s wealth as numerous American and Europeans will see it as one of the last refuges for the criminally sane. Greenland and Iceland will also start to look attractive, as might the British Isles providing they protect their shores from the same invasion which will be infecting the rest of Europe. Europe will not even be protected by the Mediterranean Sea as on a calm day you can cross over from Africa to Europe in a decent sized rowboat, or at least sure appears that way at our end of the Mediterranean. England and associated nations are more fortunate as even on a good day, the English Channel can change her mood very quickly, and for proof we give you the Spanish Armada of 1588 which was driven around the Islands and lost most of their ships and the remaining ones were in a sad state. So, England has depended on her natural border protector, the fickled seas surrounding the Isle, and she may need them to do their worst again. Europe, on the other hand, has a bathtub filled with water with Gibraltar as the drain plug between them and Africa and a land bridge with the only historical block now in central Turkey, will easily be overrun by economic immigrants as well as another wave of Islamic infiltration completely overwhelming their indigenous population. Wait, once the United Nations erases all the borders, will we still be permitted to even say ‘indigenous populations?’ Probably not.

 

A World Without Borders

A World Without Borders

 

The above map gives you the concept of a world without borders. No lines for international boundaries, no names of nations, why even name the bodies of water, no bothering to name continents because naming things would prejudice by stigmatizing the land as belonging to some group. We want a completely sterilized planet where everyone and everything are completely equal with nothing having any more meaning than anything else. This will lead to a world which will be considered a heaven to the leftist elites living in their heavily guarded compounds where they have their collection of gated communities with real and enforced borders keeping out the little people, those who do not meet their criteria of acceptable company. Initially, it will be great for those who are part of the great migrations from third world desperation to the lands flowing with wealth, well, wealth for as long as it lasts. Let’s face it, once the United Nations has pushed this idea onto the world, the next set of human rights which will follow is to settle the relocated populations, housing, ample and nutritious food, medical care and a guaranteed income. The last one will be interesting to watch, as there will be no accepted currency as there are no nations thus no dollar, no Yen, no Euro, not a single red cent or wooden nickel to be had. The United Nations will go into the market of making money, and there will be no exchange rate as this way the United Nations decides who is wealthy and who are the beggars for scraps. This will be such a wonderful world all filled with equality. Equal poverty, equal starvation, equal lack of basics for life, equal filth, equal death and it will very soon become he who has the most firepower wins, and that will be those very same people in the gated communities who will have retained their Armed Forces who will be tasked with protecting them at all costs.

 

The difficult part here is that this article is now crying out for some conclusions and predictions and we can only take completely blind and wild guesses. If we were to be totally honest, we would throw up our hands and accept our inability, but we will go ahead and try anyway. We would hope that Israel would not only refuse to go along with this, but that she would be out of the United Nations before this ridiculous idea to destroy the world was even close to being adopted. Secondly, we seriously doubt such an idea would ever clear the Security Council as it is currently structured. This is why there exists such pressure to completely revamp the Security Council taking away the ultimate veto power from the nations currently holding them and possibly reassigning them on a rotating basis such that everyone gets to wield that power with the exception of Israel as she has thusfar been denied a seat on the Security Council, another reason to quit the club is it has proven in every means possible not to appreciate or even desire her membership. The other advantage is by leaving, Israel would never have to worry about breaking the rules imposed by the United Nations, as she would no longer be a participating member in the freedom choking, money laundering, terrorist sponsoring club. Eventually, nations such as the United States, only appreciated because she pays most of the bills, Israel, what appreciated, never happened, and eventually the European nations who would be expected to pay the bills once the United States left, and the rest of the developed world, the nations forced to meet climate goals while India and China are permitted to pollute to their little darling hearts’ content. There will be one item almost assured to happen once Israel departs, whether by her own volition or because she was evicted, the United States would then be promoted to target for every ill in the world and responsible for all suffering. While the BDS Movement would continue as the Arabs would never give up on their drive to destroy Israel, it would have a corollary called the BDSUSA Movement where the same idiocy would be targeting the United States.

 

Eventually, such a movement would start to become viable simply because there is one thing in the world of which there is no limit, stupidity, and that is doubly true for the political class. Sooner or later, the United Nations will go the way of the League of Nations but for a completely different reason. The League of Nations became obsolete as soon as World War II started as it obviously was incapable of preventing wars and dreadfully so. The League of Nations proved to not have sufficient power to actually make any of its decision felt or in any way applied. Any and every nations had more power than did the League of Nations and they made sure to use it to ignore the rulings from that body. The reason the United Nations will be scrapped will be because it assumed too much power. Once the United Nations successfully reassembles the rules and structure of the Security Council taking the permanent veto power from the current holders, France, Britain, China, United States and Russia, they will face sanctions just as easily as any other nation except with a twenty or thirty member Security Council the most wealthy industrialized nations will become checkbooks to be cashed through Security Council levied fines for improper behavior and this cash will flow to some of the worst dictatorial countries on Earth. How long does anybody expect any nation to remain in an organization which is using it as a cash cow without allowing them any veto over these actions, let alone sometimes even no voice in the chamber from where these decisions are handed down? But that would be the expectation of the majority of United Nations members and when the United States, followed soon behind by the remainder of the free world, follow Israel out the door refusing to bow before, what will have become a completely corrupt collection of ingrates, the United Nations whims and demands, then the United Nations will die the corrupt death it deserves. With no money, no military, and no major nations still attending other than China, India, Brazil and possibly a few others, and once these nations start being hit up for funding the world, they too will exit really quickly. The United Nations will actually slowly but inevitably commit suicide, and it could not happen to a nicer bunch of undesirables.

Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Latest Frightening Report

 

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) recently released their Special Report 15 detailing the absolute necessity for reconfiguring the world and the way of life for virtually every individual on the planet. There would be one consistency which would affect every person on the planet outside of the select special elite few whose style of life and comfort must be maintained as they are the ones who decide the policies. Everyone else would be reduced to dependence upon subsistence farming and reliance completely on renewable bio-friendly energy. These changes would require the end of any reliance on fossil fuel use by 2050 and the near collapse of any industrial society. The reductions they are demanding would mean no more cars for the bulk of the world’s population. No, not just gasoline and diesel powered vehicles because there would be no industrial base necessary to even build electric cars or the ability to generate sufficient electricity to keep them functioning. Their demands would bring an end to the use of plastic in production, should any survive. Fertilizer use would be restricted if not completely banned leading to such a loss in food production worldwide that starvation would soon follow as food prices would necessarily increase around four-fold. Their report does not strike this strident picture until one bothers to process the ramifications of their demands and their complete and total bias against all industrial use of coal and crude oil dependence both for production and energy generation. But all would not be lost as the United Nations would see to it that the available resources would be redistributed in a fair and equitable manner around the globe. They would make sure that we all shared in equal misery.

 

What is probably the most frightening demand from their plans is for an end to the capitalist model replacing it with a United Nations run centralized economy based on socialistic equality. We have all seen how this worked so beautifully in Venezuela and North Korea, the two nations which might actually see gains for individual wealth and survivability. All of these changes are necessary in order to assure that average global temperatures not be allowed to rise more than another 0.5 degrees C (0.9 F) “above pre-industrial levels.” That was also the end of the Little Ice Age and they claim that all the temperature increase since then is directly due to the use of fossil fuels and other anthropomorphic climate change, human caused increases. We would love to believe that this scare tactic was at least backed by a morsel of reality and not manipulation of the data to support their claims and for the maximum alarmism. The truth is best shown through two graphs, the top graph which covers the period chosen by the IPCC which starts from near the end of the Little Ice Age, as reported above, and the lower graph which shows temperatures from ice core and other scientific research of temperatures from 2500 B.C. through to predictions on to 2040 A.D. The reality of temperature variations over history proves one thing, the climate changes and about that, there can be no doubt. One would be led to believe that the IPCC would claim that it was human use of chariots which must have had oil-based grease used to lubricate their wheels which caused CO2 and thus global warming causing the massive temperature spike centered around 1100 B.C. There have always been temperature fluctuations and not all of them, or even most of them, can be blamed on human causes. All one need do is look back to the climate research done about fifty years ago when the scare was that the Earth was heading for another Ice Age. They even were required to change their scare tactics from claiming that the future was going to be a steady period of global warming to climate change because for the past twenty years there has been almost no warming of any notable amount whatsoever. Temperature of the Earth is affected far more by solar activity, the variations in the wobble of the planet, the changes in the Earth’s orbit and the Axial Precession which has a major effect.

So why is the IPCC coming out with the alarms and calls of gloom and doom? The answer is simple, control. The IPCC is designed to use pseudoscience in order to allow the United Nations to gain an ever-greater hold on the economies of nations, where their money is spent and simple control over the world economy. The United Nations has become a collection of despotic governance from around the world which is totally against individual freedoms and capitalism which it sees as the industrial world’s means of oppressing the developing world. Their claim is that it is the capitalists of the United States, Europe and the rest of the industrial and advanced world which has forced poverty on the numerous despotically ruled nations and not their oppressive governance which works largely to enrich a select group who rule ruthlessly stealing as much wealth from their nation while denying the people representation and it is their own governments which are preventing their developing a working economy. These leaders dream of getting the United Nations sufficient power to steal the wealth from the advanced world so they can pocket even more wealth as they are not satisfies with the meager wealth they are able to take from their own nation. For a perfect example, let us take what is probably the most highly subsidized region on the planet, the Palestinian Authority. They receive literally hundreds of millions of dollars and Euros annually through the United Nations, United States, Arab states, European Union and numerous European government and numerous other sources. These contributions include those for Hamas in Gaza as well as the Palestinian Authority in the Shomron. There is an easy means of showing where all these resources have gone. Yassir Arafat dies with a wealth of estimated $1.3 billion. Munib Masri served as a minister in Yasser Arafat’s cabinet where he amassed a wealth estimated at $1.5 billion. Estimates of Mahmoud Abbas’s wealth range from a paltry $100 million to $1 billion but what is known is his sons own numerous companies which have been granted part or all of virtually every government contract over the past ten years though their worth is a well guarded secret, and it is obvious why. As for Abbas, well below in the top picture of the planned new home, office and international meeting place he has plans to have built for himself, should he live that long as he is 81 years old and his health has questions. Musa Abu Marzook is or was the number two man in Hamas as well as its main fundraiser and is reported as having an estimated net worth at $2-3 billion. Khaled Mashaal is the former leader of Hamas who is estimated to be worth $2.6 billion. Ismail Haniyeh is the former Gazan leader of Hamas and is estimated at a net worth in 2018 of $3 Billion. We could continue with this parade of people who by being at the top or connected to those at the top of Hamas and Fatah and the PLO and probably Islamic Jihad as well who are worth hundreds of million if not billions of dollars, and they try to claim the terrorism and killing Jews does not pay. But as you can see the top people in Gaza gained, or should we say stole, great amounts of wealth and wasted more on their attempts to destroy Israel which resulted in misery for the regular people of Gaza which is considered to have some of the poorest citizens in the world. This is true as there are two Gazans, the wealthy and the destitute, as depicted in the bottom picture below.

This stolen wealth which is so over the top in the Palestinian Arab communities no matter which group rules over them is not isolated just to their regions. Many a dictator if not excessively wealthy does live a good life with clean and comfortable place to live, plenty of food, television and computer and all the luxuries of the Western World while many of their subjects live in huts or homes made out of whatever materials they can find and live off subsistence farming with a poor diet and often only dirty water to drink. The leaders often are driven around in top of the line Mercedes limousines, have yachts, private jets (often large Boeing jets) and numerous other items many of us only dream of having and their people do not even think of ever being that wealthy as they are scraping to get by. One of the most notorious dictators was Idi Amin whose rule was characterized by human rights abuses, political repression, and ethnic persecution killing between 100,000 to 500,000 people and when he died, he was worth $76 million. But wealth is only part of the worth of these dictators who live a very high and rich lifestyle often at the cost to their national treasuries, in that way they can have all they desire and dine extremely well from the choicest of international delights while claiming to the people that they take only a paltry salary and live a simple life just as they live. Honesty is not a trait found in many of the political world.

 

But these are the people who pick the membership of the IPCC and governments, in order to gain some of the grant money from the IPCC and to curry favor often only to provide research money to those who support the climate picture they desire. There so exist a fair number of scientists who have performed research and taken measurements which call into doubt much of the climate debate and produce results which challenge the IPCC, directly contradicting much of their results. These are often university scholars who perform their work without any government grants and do so only for the pure science and in the search for the reality, for the truth as honestly as they are able to discern such. Once these researchers are found out through peer review, they are often threatened by their university or by those who control grants. The problem is much of the scientific research required to perform climate research can be gleaned through rather straight-forward and simple means. Much of the data gleaned by NASA is available online and this includes measurements taken from around the globe daily by the International Space Station which can measure both the temperature of the upper atmosphere as well as make measurements of ground temperatures. The International Space Station also collects very important data about the sun as do a number of various other satellites. But here is the kicker about climate change; measurements taken over the last fifty years of the temperatures on the other orbs circling our sun have all shown their temperatures rising proportionally similar to the changes measured here on Earth. We seriously doubt that there exists anthropomorphic climate change on Venus, Mars, or especially the moons of Jupiter and Saturn. But then again, there are those who claim that we already have secret space fleets capable of reaching not only every planet and moon in the solar system, but have also reached to the nearest stars, so maybe the temperature changes on Mars is due to too many rovers being driven wildly across the dunes of Mars by adventurous astronauts. We have our serious doubts, but we will leave this up to the IPCC Space Division when they start one to determine the truth.
