YouTube deployed a similar strategy on a CNN video that hosted a debate between television host Bill Nye and founder of Climate Depot Marc Morano. This time a blurb about the “realities of global warming” appeared on the bottom of the screen. In a statement to the Media Research Center, Morano said, “The fact check completely misses the point.This is only the beginning of the appeasement of activists by YouTube.”
He went on to call the YouTube policy “virtue signaling” and said that “This is the end of any hint that the left has any tolerance. That notion is gone now that they are going after conservative content." YouTube clearly decided to pick a side in the controversial debate, using the sentence from Wikipedia: “Multiple lines of scientific evidence show that the climate system is warming.”

The way it works has the left making a projection of climate change, then the fascist uses it as an excuse to seize power. Even the left has blamed the problem which they caused an imaginary climate change 30 years ago they projected that the Maldives would be completely gone within 30 years -- that's now.

The NYT author, Nathaniel Rich, writes that from 1979 to 1989 humanity had the best opportunity it has ever had to solve global warming and that “nothing stood in our way – nothing except ourselves.” Rich even goes as far as to say that “[a] common boogeyman today is the fossil-fuel industry,” but during the time when “everybody knew,” oil companies “including Exxon and Shell, made good-faith efforts to understand the scope of the crisis and grapple with possible solutions.”
"Systems of oppression (capitalism, colonialism, racism, and patriarchy) have led to climate change, therefore we must shift our culture away from these systems." ... "Black lives matter. Queer and trans people must be heard. Rape culture must be dismantled...Marginalized cultures must be treated with dignity."
