YouTube is Dying

And they’re doing it to themselves.  At one point in time I thought YouTube was more about cash flows for Google via advertising, but these days it seems more to be their propaganda arm.  In the latest of things YouTube is now doing that nobody asked for, they will be adding “fact checks” to videos on topics they think spread scientific misinformation, according to BuzzFeed.

YouTube is now adding fact checks to videos that question climate change, BuzzFeed News has confirmed, as a part of its ongoing effort to combat the rampant misinformation and conspiratorial fodder on its platform.

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.”

This new feature follows YouTube’s announcement in March that it would place descriptions from Wikipedia and Encyclopedia Britannica next to videos on topics that spur conspiracy theories, such as the moon landing and the Oklahoma City bombing. In doing the same for climate videos, the company seems to be wading into more fraught and complex intellectual territory.

Great.  Because Wikipedia is such a reliable source as well.  Is this the world we really want to live in?  Is this the kind of Internet that we want?  Forget whatever side of the climate debate you may be on.  Do we really want everything put through YouTube’s filter with what they think we should or should not be viewing?  How Orwellian can they get?

The Internet at its core is what free speech is supposed to be about.  You should be able to watch whatever the hell you want without being force fed garbage.  And it should be noted that climate science is a HIGHLY variable science.  Hell, most climate models ever created have been wrong.  This article from 2013 goes into how wrong.  The bottom line is whether you think it’s all humans doing or just MAYBE have a little skepticism about how much we are contributing or how badly things are, you should be able to watch whatever the hell you want without additional (mis)information being peddled to you.

The screws continue to be turned on our liberties.  As I wrote about earlier today YouTube is already starting to heavily censor or just plain deplatform views they do not agree with.  They’re becoming bolder in their moves, and thankfully it will also be their demise.  New platforms like BitChute are starting to grow at a huge pace now in part thanks to YouTube’s Draconian policies.  See the video below from Razorfist as he had a great take on it today.  And lastly, if you’re looking for a Wikipedia like website, give Infogalactic a try.  A much more honest version of Wikipedia.

Africans are causing parasite epidemics in Europe

One of the many disasters that has been caused by the African migration into Europe has been the introduction of parasitic epidemics that were wholly preventable and which further endanger the native population.  Via Independent:

Around 25-30 per cent of humans are currently infected with at least one parasitic worm species.

The diseases they cause can be devastating. Worm infections can lead to diverse and chronic conditions such as scarring of the eyes and blindness, swelling of extremities and immobility, blockage of digestion and malnutrition, anaemia and tiredness. They can also increase an individual’s risk of developing cancer and Aids.

Not so long ago, human diseases caused by parasitic worms were thought to be confined to resource poor communities throughout Africa, Asia and South America. But in this age of global travel and changing climate, parasitic worms are slowly but surely moving into parts of Europe and North America. The long-term consequences of increased parasitic worm distributions are difficult to predict, but the harm that infection causes highlights the need for developing control strategies that can mitigate this 21st-century threat to global health.

Our team of scientists is currently using cutting-edge technologies to combat the single most important parasitic worm disease, schistosomiasis (or bilharzia).

Schistosomiasis – which is caused by infection with blood dwelling schistosome flatworms – currently affects hundreds of millions of people every year, often leading to the deaths of thousands to hundreds of thousands of victims. Its impact is so great that some have claimed it is second only to malaria on the scale of devastating parasitic diseases.

Approximately 85 per cent of all human schistosomasis currently occurs in sub-Saharan Africa, but outbreaks have recently been reported on the Mediterranean island of Corsica. People become infected with the parasites when they come into contact with certain types of freshwater snail that produce human-infective stage schistosomes. These parasitic worms rapidly penetrate the skin and develop into adult male and female schistosomes within the blood vessels surrounding the intestines or bladder of infected individuals.

Hundreds to thousands of eggs are produced daily by each female worm. And, once they become trapped in human organs, these eggs induce chronic complications including inflammation, tissue scarring, fluid imbalances, anaemia and, eventually, death. A proportion of eggs that migrate into the intestines or bladder will be released into the environment when an infected individual defecates or urinates. If these eggs reach fresh water, they can hatch and release snail-infective schistosome stages, which effectively completes the life cycle.

There are a lot of dark reasons behind the migrant crisis in Europe.  The author is clearly off the mark on climate change being the driver for this nonsense, but the end result is undeniable.  One wonders if perhaps there isn’t a pharmaceutical angle to it as well, but who knows.  I guess parasitic epidemics for diseases that weren’t prevalent in Europe is just another sacrifice we have to make for the ultimate strength in diversity we’ve been promised all along.  But hey, who knows, maybe through the magic soil in Europe these people will magically start defecating in designated areas for human waste disposal to slow the spread of these parasites.  One can dream, anyways.

30 Years of Failed Climate Predictions

This is a great video that talks about one aspect of how much bullshit and misinformation is spread about climate change (formerly global warming).  Climate change is one of the few topics you will be summarily ridiculed if you even hint that you may have the slightest ounce of skepticism about what we’re being told about our role in climate change.  As with most topics of this nature, they rely on bullying and shame to try and obfuscate the facts and prevent a real conversation about this important subject.  It’s time we no longer hide about what is a very healthy skepticism.  Things will devolve to war very quickly if we make it verboten to even discuss the possibility of dissent from the official narrative.

If people were willing to keep an open mind you may find a not so surprising motivator behind all the climate change hysteria nonsense.  From United Nations climate official Ottmar Edenhofer:

“One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with the environmental policy anymore, with problems such as deforestation or the ozone hole,” said Edenhofer, who co-chaired the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change working group on Mitigation of Climate Change from 2008 to 2015.

So what is the goal of environmental policy?

“We redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy,” said Edenhofer.

For those who want to believe that maybe Edenhofer just misspoke and doesn’t really mean that, consider that a little more than five years ago he also said that “the next world climate summit in Cancun is actually an economy summit during which the distribution of the world’s resources will be negotiated.”

Rare is the occasion a globalist will tell you what their true intentions are so bluntly.  Though maybe coming from the UN, a ruling body that from the ground up was created in part by confirmed Communists and sympathizers, this shouldn’t surprise us.  Never take what they say at face value.  They do not care about the environment nearly as much (if at all) as they say they do.  The same goes for human rights, fiscal responsibility, etc etc.  Environmentalism is yet another topic that has reached near religious fanaticism levels among its supporters.  The facts simply do not line up with what they or the MSM are telling you.  Don’t be afraid to question the official narrative, and have some facts handy for when they start slinging their BS at you.  And just for posterity’s sake, a post of the 45 Stated Goals of Communism as was put on official Congressional record in 1963.  The UN features prominently in there.
