This week Google and Google-owned YouTube announced they will no longer allow content questioning the left's "climate change" dogma to be monetized.
The two companies made their announcements on Thursday, adopting the strictest censorship policies regarding the issue of climate change among the major tech platforms, Axios reported.
Under the policies, Google advertisers and publishers, in addition to YouTube content creators, will not be allowed to earn ad revenue from content that refutes “well-established scientific consensus around the existence and causes of climate change,” according to a statement from the company’s ad division.
“This includes content referring to climate change as a hoax or a scam, claims denying that long-term trends show the global climate is warming, and claims denying that greenhouse gas emissions or human activity contribute to climate change,” the policy continued.
"The companies said that advertising and monetization will still be permitted to run on content featuring climate-related topics including policy discussions and debate, the impacts of climate change, and new research into the issue. However, it’s not yet clear if new research that disproves or refutes 'scientific consensus' will be monetized," American Wire added.
And of course, 'scientific consensus' is that human activity is causing global warming and climate change, which is a theory and has never been absolutely proven or demonstrated. In fact, based on real science, there is no evidence proving humans are causing the climate to change at all.
“In recent years, we’ve heard directly from a growing number of our advertising and publisher partners who have expressed concerns about ads that run alongside or promote inaccurate claims about climate change,” the Google said. “Advertisers simply don’t want their ads to appear next to this content. And publishers and creators don’t want ads promoting these claims to appear on their pages or videos."
But again, there is no "consensus" that climate change -- and yes, the world's climate is ever-changing -- is caused by human activities.
One liberal academic, Dr. Steve Koonin, who served as the undersecretary of energy for science during the Obama regime, told Tucker Carlson earlier this year that the narrative is a fiction made up by politicians and echoed by left-wing media for their personal benefit and empowerment -- and he based his opinion on actual science, not speculation or political viewpoints.
According to data from the U.S. government, Koonin said in June that there are "no detectable human influences" on natural disasters like hurricanes and it has been that way for more than a century. He also said that today’s heatwaves in the U.S. are just as common as they were back in 1900.
"The warmest temperatures have not gone up in the last 60 years," he noted, with Fox News adding:
The physicist pointed out that politicians love to throw around the term "existential threat" when it comes to the topic of climate, but he argued that government officials like Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg are unqualified to raise the issue to such an extreme.
"I don't think the science says what… Secretary Pete thinks it says," he said. "In fact, I can guarantee you he's never read the science. Fact, I can guarantee you that Sen. Sanders, President Biden, [climate 'czar] Ambassador [John] Kerry, [Energy] Secretary [Jennifer] Granholm have never read the science -- because you need to be a scientist in order to do that. And in fact, when you read it, there's very little in terms of extreme weather that's changed over the last many decades."
He also chided scientists for not standing up and saying what they know to be true: That the human-caused 'climate change' narrative is a massive hoax.
"It is a failure of the scientific community not to stand up and say, ‘Guys, you know, you have over-egged the custard. You really need to be much more circumspect in how you talk about this,’" he said. "And, of course, that gets then picked up by the politicians, and the media love to talk about catastrophes."
