Google funds climate crisis deniers

Google has made what is described as "substantial" donations to at least a dozen national think tanks that deny the climate crisis and are campaigning against stronger climate policies.

This includes far-right groups like the Competitive Enterprise Institute and the American Conservative Union. The CEI has not only said the climate crisis is a myth but has also opposed antitrust enforcement.

The donations are reportedly an effort to get legislators to keep part of the far-right 1996 Telecommunications Act that shields companies like Google from being held responsible for the content posted on their systems.

Who's surprised, after Google yanked our AdSense account because of our politics?
