Obama Foreign Policy Still Punishes The Global Poor

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ One of the first great things that President Trump did was to rescind a lot of Obama’s wrongheaded climate change directives, in March 2017. As it turns out, however, Team Trump missed a big one. Either that or they let it slide for questionable reasons. The directive in question is […]

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Over the last few weeks several of my CFACT articles on climate science have collectively garnered over 4000 comments. This is the wide ranging climate science debate personified, with many sides represented. Anyone who claims that there is no scientific debate should read through these comments to see it in […]

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ In my previous article I found that Google search results for prominent skeptics of climate change alarmism included a lot of negative material. Four or five negative items out of ten or twelve on the first page of results were typical. This raises the question of whether Google’s search algorithm […]

Google’s Global Warming Search Bias

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ The rumor that Google has tuned its search algorithm to work against the skeptics of climate change alarmism appears to be true. Searches on prominent skeptics systematically yield more negative attacks than positive information. This cannot be an accident. It may well be illegal, given Google’s deep financial interest in […]
