YouTube Tags Climate Realism Videos with Disclaimer

The transformation of Internet infrastructure from an ostensibly neutral to a uniformly left-wing platform won’t stop with the silencing of Alex Jones. Already mainstream resistance to leftism is under attack. To the delight of BuzzFeed, even a video of a respected atmospheric physicist who fails to toe the line on anthropogenic global warming ideology gets tagged on YouTube with a disclaimer to discredit it:

On July 9, the company added a blurb of text underneath some videos about climate change, which provided a scientifically accurate explainer. The text comes from the Wikipedia entry for global warming and states that “multiple lines of scientific evidence show that the climate system is warming.”

The idea is to equate skepticism of anthropogenic global warming theory — a deliberately contrived hoax that serves as a vehicle for hard left objectives regarding taxation, regulation, and wealth redistribution — with conspiracy theories about fake moon landings, et cetera.

Michael Mann is infamous for his involvement in ClimateGate, his invention of the mendacious hockey stick graph, and his use of intimidation lawsuits to silence those who call him on his fraudulence. Unsurprisingly, he loves the idea:

Mann likened YouTube’s new messaging to the warning label on a pack of cigarettes: “Warning — this video may or may not be promoting actual facts about climate change.”

“Actual facts” are those fabricated by Mann so as to acquire lucrative government grants.

At least using Wikipedia as the gold standard of reliability and political neutrality provides us all with a good laugh.

Here’s an example of a video that got tagged. Watch it before YouTube bans it altogether:
