The Horror: Google Let Daily Wire Advertise On “Climate Change Is A Hoax” Searches

Seriously, this is a thing that is getting the UK Guardian bent out of shape over? How about all those Elites taking private fossil fueled jets to climate meetings?

Google let Daily Wire advertise on ‘climate change is a hoax’ searches

Green Climate Thought PoliceA media outlet founded by conservative influencer Ben Shapiro paid Google to advertise on search pages questioning whether the climate crisis is real, according to new research from a disinformation watchdog group.

The Daily Wire bought ads on search terms over the past year such as “climate change is a hoax” and “why is climate change fake”, meaning that when people Googled these phrases, stories from Shapiro’s outlet were some of the first results that appeared, the research found.

Google sold these ads even after announcing a new policy in October 2021 prohibiting ads that promote climate crisis denial. Its CEO, Sundar Pichai, publicly stated at the time that “when people come to Google Search with questions about climate change, we’ll show authoritative information from sources like the United Nations”.

“Google’s hypocrisy knows no bounds,” said Imran Ahmed, CEO of the US and UK-based Center for Countering Digital Hate, which provided its research exclusively to the Guardian. “They’re actually selling the right to climate deniers to spread disinformation.” (snip)

For its research, Ahmed’s organization relied upon a commercial analytics tool called Semrush, which is used by many Fortune 500 companies and shows the Google phrases and search terms that brands advertise on. Semrush also provides estimates of the dollar amounts companies are spending on digital marketing efforts.

This is hilariously a long article, Outraged that Google would allow this to happen. How dare they make money off of anyone who disagrees with cult doctrine! And, seriously, a group has time and the inclination to investigate this stuff? Really? This is almost as dumb as “Influencers”.  Of course, they do want to shut down opposing voices, because the climate cult cannot prove their beliefs, hence, they do not want anyone seeing information that conflicts with that doctrine.

Want to take action on climate change? These books can help.


To help our readers meet these challenges, Yale Climate Connections has assembled a special collection of books and reports on climate action. Each offers practical advice for individuals who want to persuade their communities to act on climate change. Some of these titles have appeared in previous bookshelves; others are newly discovered or recently published. The collection includes titles aimed at different age groups: adults, college students, young adults, and children. Many also offer inspiring personal stories of climate activism.

So if you want to up your game on climate change this year, resolve to read one of these books.

As always, the descriptions of the titles are adapted from copy provided by the publishers or organizations that released them.

Per the descriptions of those books at the link, none seem to say “give up your own use of fossil fuels and make your lives carbon neutral.” They all but one seem to be about agitating, demonstrating, and getting Government to crack down on your money, life, and freedom of choice. And this one

Climate Courage: How Tackling Climate Change Can Build Community, Transform the Economy, and Bridge the Political Divide in America, by Andreas Karelas (Beacon Press 2020, 248 pages, $17.00 paperback)

Transform the economy? To what? It’s $13.99 at Amazon, and, let’s see a few reviews (it only has 9 and 20 ratings, despite being out since 2020)

  • Socialist indoctrination. It’s a shame I was forced to read this for school
  • No solutions, just a bunch of empty talking points

And none of the editorial reviews by climate cult bigshots, like Bill McKibben, mention what kind of economy they book is pushing, nor what they want to do for communities.

    Teach is there in fact a natural explanation why the Earth is heating up? Do greenhouse gases absorb inflared radiation and warm the atmosphere?
    Is there something else that is increasing our temps?

      Hey johnnie boy, see that big orange ball up there in the sky?

      Have another toke, buddy.

      Bwaha! Lolgf

    • Jo says:

      Carbon Boy-as you’ve been shown many times, in increase in shortwave radiation from…….the sun due to changes in cloud cover. . Memory fading again…?

  2. Jl says:

    You’ve got to love a group that attempts to stifle opposing viewpoints, though. The “scientific method” in action…

  3. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Like most sites on the interwebs, Google whores its searches to the highest bidder. It is still up to individuals to discriminate between legitimate citations and propagandists purchasing exposure.

    Lately, some “skeptics” have hypothesized that warming is occurring because the Earth’s surface is now receiving more of the Sun’s energy because of changes in clouds. Contrary evidence is that the stratosphere is cooling suggesting either 1) the Sun is dimming or 2) some mechanism is slowing the loss of heat from the Earth’s surface. The is no evidence that the Sun is dimming.

    • drowningpuppies says:

      Well if Rimjob says it’s ‘true’ (without citations) who are we to doubt his conclusion?

      It’s the “scientific method”, right Chubby?

      Bwaha! Lolgf

    Dear Elwood:

    “some mechanism is slowing the loss of heat from the Earth’s surface.”

    And the mechanism and evidence is?????

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Greenhouse gas in the atmosphere is the mechanism of global warming.

      Stratospheric cooling is evidence of greenhouse gas as a cause of global warming.

      • Jl says:

        No, ghg are one of the alleged mechanisms of gw, of which there are several. “Stratospheric cooling is evidence of ghg….”
        Interesting, in that the “tropical hotspot” was supposed to be the official gw fingerprint. When that never materialized, now some are saying something different. There’s several other alleged explanations for stratospheric cooling, one being the ionization of solar and cosmic radiation.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Yes, several. LOL.

          Of course, there was no such thing as the “official” fingerprint of global warming, unless it’s the fact that the Earth warms as CO2 increases.

          What is the “something different” that “now some are saying”? Stratospheric cooling? That’s been observed for decades. And how do you ionize solar and cosmic radiation?

          • Jl says:

            Sure there was-the “tropical hotspot” was one of the alleged main indicators of agw , along with “polar amplification”. Both failed, as no hotspot has ever been found and one of the poles failed to “amplify”.

  5. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Teach: … those books at the link, none seem to say “give up your own use of fossil fuels and make your lives carbon neutral.”

    This is Mr Teach’s last stand – that “warmists” have not given up their own use of fossil fuels.

    Don’t overlook this book at the link…

    Living the 1.5 Degree Lifestyle: Why Individual Climate Action Matters More Than Ever by Lloyd Alter (New Society Publishers 2021,176 pages, $19.95 paperback)

    Living the 1.5 Degree Lifestyle draws on Lloyd Alter’s own efforts to track his daily carbon emissions—from take-out food, bikes and cars, and internet usage, to the invisible carbon embedded in everything we own. Grounded in meticulous research and yet accessible to all, Alter’s book describes a journey toward a life of quality over quantity, and sufficiency over efficiency.
