     When I checked your page, the Google Ads seemed to be appropriate
to the subject.  This isn't always the case.  This morning I followed
a link from Slashdot to a story about climate change on
news-about-space.com. That site has Google Ads.  One was as follows:

              Discount Climate 
              New & used Climate 
              Change. aff Check 
              out the huge 
              selection now!

     Following the link to E-bay showed a lot of items, apparently
mainly books or songs, with "Change" in their name.

     This illustrates how accurate Google's "Context Sensitive" ad
selection is.
