Is it possible to show google ads when an ad blocker is installed?

I have an ad blocker program so I shouldn't be able to see any Google ads. I do that mainly so I don't accidentally click on an ad when browsing my own site. Others use it so they don't see ads which is not good news for info sites like mine. I just went to Weather.com and noticed their Google ads show for me (this one I saw was generated from googleleadservices.com).
So that made me wonder if there is a way to "force" google ads to display even though an ad blocker is installed?

No, any request to Google's ad servers will be blocked by the browser (extension), so ads simply cannot be fetched. Without cooperation from Google (premium publishers may, for example, be provided a different way of embedding text ads that is not blocked or even blockable), the only way "around" an ad blocker is to get whitelisted.

You might want to check your ad blocker's setup/config. Often these are updated and in some instances a whitelisting is included.

I believe the default setting on most adblockers is to allow 'acceptable ads'. This includes ads from Google, which famously paid a ransom to the adblackmailers.

Thank you all. I also emailed the Adsense support team and they confirmed there is no way around this.
