This are all fake, produced by AI:
Higgins indicates how to spot these as fake, but I sure can't see that. These are excellent.

La Fin du monde ("The end of the world") is a woodcut by the French astronomer and author Camille Flammarion.
The UN secretary general, António Guterres, said: “This report is a clarion call to massively fast-track climate efforts by every country and every sector and on every timeframe. Our world needs climate action on all fronts: everything, everywhere, all at once.”
Kaisa Kosonen, a climate expert at Greenpeace International, said: “This report is definitely a final warning on 1.5C. If governments just stay on their current policies, the remaining carbon budget will be used up before the next IPCC report [due in 2030].”

I received an email from Google (who owns Blogger) about my July 2019 blog post "I Am Now Too Old to Use the Internet".

But why? All I can figure out is that I used the word "fuck" twice in that post. There's nothing else at all controversial there that I can see. Just me musing, a bit emotionally.
So really? Now you can't use the word "fuck" in a Blogger post? Seems pretty ridiculous, and very heavy.
I wonder if an enemy of mine (?) turned me in to Google for such a piddling issue.
I never use the f-word in real life, among people. But I do use it when I stub my toe.
I did use it here twice when emotional. I'm hardly going to apologize for that.
Fuck Google's unthinking AI.
Weird and it makes me a bit angry. Of course, there's no sense in trying to fight this, even if I could figure out who to write to--there doesn't seem to be any way to contact them to ask questions.
Reminds me of the time I was banned from posting to Facebook for two months because I posted this picture:
What an amazing picture, full of strength and opposition.
And the unthinking robotic bitches at FB blocked it.
I don't do much of anything with Facebook anymore.
Maybe now Google will also ban me to for posting this amazing picture. If so, fuck them.

About three times higher since I was born. Enough?
I mean, I could never have run that fast, even for a single lap, when I was young. Not even half a lap. Not even down the back stretch.
