Google to Remove "Climate Change" and "Global Warming" from search results
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA 28 January 2006 --- /Denounce Newswire/ --- Google, Inc. today announced it has removed all references to "global warming" and "climate change" from its search results, at the direct request of the Bush Administration.
Yesterday, Google announced removal of references to content deemed un-American by the Government.
"Remember our S-1? We said we would do things that might even appear weird," said Sergey Brin, co-Founder of Google. "Well, we're now officially weird."
"Weird I can deal with," says Dr. James E. Hansen, the former top climate expert at NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies, "but I never expected Google to be downright evil."

Google to Censor Liberal, Democrat Search Results
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA 28 January 2006 --- /Denounce Newswire/ --- Google, Inc. today announced that in accordance with its new policy on censorship, it has agreed to requests from the United States Government to remove references to many liberal, leftist, progressive, and activist organizations.
Prominent among sites and blogs that will no longer be searchable by Google are MoveOn.org, ALCU.org, Greenpeace.org, the Talking Points Memo blog, AirAmericaRadio.com, and DailyKos.com.
"It is Google's policy not to censor search results," reads Google's newly-revised statement on censorship. "However, in response to local laws, regulations, or policies, we may do so. When we remove search results for these reasons, we display a notice on our search results pages."
Inspired by recent Chinese government censorship of certain search terms on Google's new Chinese website, the Bush Administration requested similar restrictions for issues, people, and publications it considers "out of the mainstream American line of thinking", such as The Nation magazine, Salon.com, and MoveOn.
"We believe in freedom of speech," said White House press secretary Scott McClennan. "But we also believe that the Government must protect the American people from exposure to search results for content that is dangerous, secular, obstructionist, immoral, or just plain un-American."
Among the historical documents and references Google will also be removing from its search engines are all historical references to Enron, Watergate, Iran-Contra, My-Lai, Abu-Grhaib, Martin Luther King, Brown v. Board of Education, and Roe v. Wade.
