The Evil Empire Strikes Back: Google ‘Flags’ Website Skeptical of Global Warming

Boy, them Googlers Act Fast.

Climate ’skeptic’ website ICECAP posted this item noting Google’s latest gambit in global warming activism, which includes bringing on board as an advisor an academic whose name and address pop up with some frequency in the ClimateGate emails.

Apparently in response, Google has flagged ICECAP’s website with this warning, discouraging traffic:

This site may be compromised.

ICECAP host Joe D’Aleo, the first meteorologist at the Weather Channel before that operation sold out to the alarmist industry, brought this to my attention and assures me this warning was not the case until now. He also attests that the site is not compromised. We just have a co-incidence of challenge followed by inaccuracy, is all.

    The Icecap site appears to be ok now, but screencaps of the situation are at this link: http://i51.tinypic.com/10z7r6t.jpg My American Thinker blog piece that Joe D’Aleo refers to under Horner’s initial article post is here: “Google to fight global warming ‘ignorance’ ” http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2011/03/google_to_fight_global_warming.html

    Probably a good idea for people to get to the bottom of whether this was some sort of genuine alert about a hacked website, or if the Google Corporation people really were trying to pull a form of censorship by labeling the site as something that uninformed web surfers would skip if they saw that message.
