I was reading this article at WUWT:
Decided to do a test on https://duckduckgo.com/ as it is my usual search engine. Searched on “climate change”:
It sets out the Wiki in a special box on the right. Then has 3 boxes of what look like preferred (paid?) results on the top as ‘recent news’ with an arrow to get more. BBC, WMUR New Hampsire with a FUD story, and Fox saying C.Ch. has made fires and such worse. Then the list, starting with a flagged Ad for Amazon (I’ve removed all the URLs so I don’t have to reconstruct them with HTML of my liking):

Not a skeptical voice among them and WUWT nowhere to be found.
Then I did a search on “Unbiased search engine” and it returned https://www.mojeek.com/
Yes, duckduckgo found mojeek as unbiased…
Same search there returns, in addition to the same set-out of the Wiki article:

Don’t know anything about the “climatechangereconsidered” folks, but WUWT shows up in slot #2. Then we start getting the “usual suspects” of all the Ra Ra Climate Depressives.
It looks like these folks have, in fact, made a non-biased search engine that isn’t just picking up Google, Yahoo or Bing and repackaging them. I’m going to be using them for a while and see how it feels…
Found the “add it to Firefox” button under the “about” link at the bottom:
Also, they are based out of the UK and have a UK centric choice on their top page, so may be better suited to non-USA based folks preferences and interests.
Sidebar on WUWT Comment
Oddly, I put basically this same text into a comment at WUWT and it went to moderation. I suspect one of the URLs is on a hold list (skeptical science that isn’t?). When I attempted to release it from moderation, I discovered that I am still approved on the old WordPress site (that seems to still exist) but my comment didn’t go there (everything was last June at the latest).
Seems in the transition to the new site for WUWT, I’ve been out of the loop. As I’d basically dropped to very little moderation duties (the change to threaded comments broke my style of just do end to end of a thread… then when returning, pick it up at the end again. Can’t do that with new comments showing up everywhere in the thread) I guess that makes sense.
But the upshot is it may be a while (if ever?) before my comment appears there. So I’ve made this article here.
Probably ought to check my e-mail queue and see if some “directions” were sent to me that I’ve missed ;-) Or if I’m just being omitted…
