Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

Another Example of Google Bitching…

NO civilized society allows a bunch of ad pimps to hijack and control the flow of information

google promotion

Compare and contrast! Note the condescending, dismissive and totally unprofessional way in which Google summarizes FIRE-EARTH entry on the search result.

For a plethora of abuse and infringements by the Internet mafia, search blog content.

Gulf Oil Disaster: BP Lied – Google Covered Up!

Posted by feww on July 8, 2010

Google’s Deadly Cover-up Worked Against American People

Google Compounded the Harm Caused to the Gulf of Mexico by Blocking Information on the Extent of the Disaster

Crucial information about the dangers of drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, Deepwater Horizon rig explosion and subsequent incidents posted  on this blog have been filtered and selectively blocked/buried by Google to protect its corporate  partners and financial investments.

Fire Earth was the first blog to

  • Doubt Obama Team’s sanity for issuing deepwater drilling licenses in Gulf of Mexico.
  • Question BP’s statement about the rate of leak from Macondo oil well.

YET, Google suppressed all of the above information when it mattered most.

Govt Must Deny Google Internet Search Monopoly

Google: Dark Force Against the People

4 in 5 people surveyed say Internet access is ‘a fundamental right’

As Google Inc, the Internet mafia boss, continues to block, filter and bury important information posted on Fire-Earth and its affiliated blogs, four in five people around the world say access to the internet is a fundamental right, according to a poll for the BBC.

More than 27,000 adults across 26 countries who were surveyed  expressed strong support for Internet access “on both sides of the digital divide.” BBC reported.

The “Big Brother” is blocking even earthquake and tsunami information posted on this blog—information which could save lives.

Finland and Estonia have already ruled Internet access as  a human right for their citizens.

“International bodies such as the UN are also pushing for universal net access.” BBC said.

“The right to communicate cannot be ignored,” Dr Hamadoun Toure, secretary-general of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) said.

“The internet is the most powerful potential source of enlightenment ever created.”

Toure said that governments must “regard the internet as basic infrastructure – just like roads, waste and water.”

“We have entered the knowledge society and everyone must have access to participate.”

The full report is available here.

Google lands in brown goo again!

Internet Mafia Provokes the Ire of EU Firms

The European Commission is investigating complaints against Google, the Internet Mafia admitted.

Three companies have complained about Google’s mafia-like activities:  UK price comparison site Foundem, French legal search engine, and Microsoft’s Ciao.

Google’s senior competition lawyer Julia Holtz said the internet Goliath was “confident” it did not break European competition law, BBC reported.

Foundem says its site is downgraded in Google’s search results, a practice with which  Fire-Earth (this blog) is all too familiar.

“Foundem… argues that our algorithms demote their site in our results because they are a vertical search engine and so a direct competitor to Google,” Google said.

“’s complaint seems to echo these concerns.”

The complaint regarding price comparison site Ciao, which Microsoft bought in 2008, concerns Google’s standard terms and conditions.

Microsoft initially took its case to the German competition authority, but Google said it had now been transferred to Brussels.

“Although we haven’t been notified yet by the commission, we do believe it’s natural for competition officials to look at online advertising given how important it is to the development of the internet and the dominance of one player.

“In the meantime, we continue to co-operate with the German government’s investigation into complaints brought by Ciao.” BBC quoted A Microsoft spokesman as saying.

Meanwhile, the European Commission has issued a statement confirming that it had received three complaints against Google, which it was investigating, though not formally.

“As is usual when the Commission receives complaints, it informed Google earlier this month and asked the company to comment on the allegations. The Commission closely cooperates with the national competition authorities,” the statement said.

‘Immediate threat’

Google’s attorney, J. Holtz,  has reportedly said that the Commission had contacted the company about the complaints.

“Though each case raises slightly different issues, the question they ultimately pose is whether Google is doing anything to choke off competition or hurt our users and partners,” she said.

“This is not the case.” She reportedly added.

Foundem complaint said that Google had the “ability to arbitrarily penalize rivals and systematically favour its own services.”

It said Google’s Universal Search was a “mechanism for automatically inserting its own services into prominent positions within its natural search results” and “poses an immediate threat to healthy competition and innovation.” BBC reported.

Foundem founder was quoted as saying that  Google had an “unprecedented” amount of control over its market.

Meanwhile, An Italian court has convicted three Google executives in a trial over a video showing a teenager with Down’s Syndrome being bullied.

“12,000 years of [alleged] human civilization and all we have to show for is Google, Facelift [Facebook] … and cluster bombs.” —JPB
