Googlegate?

Glenn Ricketts

I wonder what’s going on with Google and Climategate?   Specifically, I mean why doesn’t the premier mega-search resource’s suggestion function work when you enter “Climategate?”   Enter “Global Warming,” for example and you’ll instantly get at least a dozon suggestions; same thing with “Climate Change.”    But with “Climategate – even though it records many more hits than the other two – nada, nyet, nichts, nihil, nothin’.   Is this a coincidence?  Maybe.  But maybe Google thinks it doesn’t need to be too helpful for those global warming deniers, either.  You have to wonder.
