Superbly developed Germany, heart of the EU, with advanced Climate Technology, gone Green New Deal, advises citizens what to do:

With blackouts looming, German government holds disaster preparation day, promotes ‘cooking without electricity’

High demand and the transition to green power has left much of Europe at risk of blackouts. In Germany, state authorities are teaching the public to heat their homes with candles and get used to “cooking without electricity.”

Next on Gov. Channel:
Cooking without water. Heating without gas. Lighting without electricity.

Recent 'revelations' that Chinese authorities were buying up PCR tests months before the Wuhan Covid-19 outbreak have renewed interest in the China-lab leak theory and cemented Western suspicion that the Chinese Communist Party is responsible for the Covid-19 pandemic and covered up its origins.

Meanwhile reports of the Chinese military conducting high numbers of flights in or near Taiwanese airspace has seen war rhetoric ramp up in Western media. Are 'we' on the cusp of WWIII with China? And should 'we' defend Taiwan against China?

This week on NewsReal, we take off the rose-tinted glasses to take a clear-eyed look at the stand-off between the USA and China.

You are probably aware of it, but there is a new YouTube/Google policy regarding discussing "climate change" topics that go against the official narrative. :rolleyes:


Updating our ads and monetization policies on climate change​

October 7, 2021
Working closely with outside experts, we regularly review and update our ads and monetization policies to help ensure a brand-safe environment for our advertising partners and to better protect users from unreliable claims, such as fake medical cures or anti-vaccine advocacy.

Addressing climate change denial​

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. 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.

That’s why today, we’re announcing a new monetization policy for Google advertisers, publishers and YouTube creators that will prohibit ads for, and monetization of, content that contradicts well-established scientific consensus around the existence and causes of climate change. 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.

When evaluating content against this new policy, we’ll look carefully at the context in which claims are made, differentiating between content that states a false claim as fact, versus content that reports on or discusses that claim. We will also continue to allow ads and monetization on other climate-related topics, including public debates on climate policy, the varying impacts of climate change, new research and more.

In creating this policy and its parameters, we’ve consulted authoritative sources on the topic of climate science, including experts who have contributed to United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Assessment Reports. As is the case for many of our policies, we’ll use a combination of automated tools and human review to enforce this policy against violating publisher content, Google-served ads, and YouTube videos that are monetizing via YouTube’s Partner Program. We’ll begin enforcing this policy next month.

This new policy not only will help us strengthen the integrity of our advertising ecosystem, but also it aligns strongly with the work we’ve done as a company over the past two decades to promote sustainability and confront climate change head-on.

Oh dear. It looks like we're going to break all the rules today then!

‌Zero Carbon - Zero Covid: The Reckless and Extremist Ideologies at the Heart of Western Governments

Before 'Zero Covid' surfaced as the apparent goal of governments in the 'War Against The Virus', 'Zero Carbon' had become their goal in the 'War Against Climate Change'. What is up with this strange 'zeroing in' on the primary carbon source for life on Earth, and an ubiquitous and statistically benign coronavirus? How and why did governments decide that completely eradicating man-made CO2 would 'make the world a better place'?

Likewise with SARS-CoV-2, a virus that has likely by now infected and interacted with a majority of people on the planet, can we not adapt to live with it rather than upend our economies to 'eradicate it? Why such 'final solutions' to relatively minor factors in a complex ecosystem?

This week on NewsReal we discuss the extreme ideas eating away at the social fabric of global society.

Live from 2pm UTC / 4pm CET / 10am US Eastern

Thank you for the show today.
I guess the title that included "Covid" was what attracted the Google system to attach and ad just below the screen a banner advising me to consult official sources about Covid.
The banner looked like this after translation:
COVID19 <Link: GET MORE INFORMATION>
Get the latest news about COVID/19 from the Ministry of Health
"G"(oogle) Find more ressource on Google <Link>
I clicked on one of them and they said I should be careful of misinformation, like moon landing conspiracies etc.

While posting, I tried to repeat the "error" to see if it was still there, even if the show is over. It is. I then tried to change the language, of the browser (language and location), then of the system, rebooted the system. Nothing worked. A VPN addon for the browser routing through Singapore would make the line slower, but did it work :halo:
