Alarmists Urge Social Media to ‘Flag Accounts’ of Climate Skeptics

Feb 21, 2024 | Political News

Climate change alarmists are urging Big Tech to censor accounts of those who question the real danger that global warming poses to humanity.

Social media companies such as X, Facebook, YouTube, and TikTok “should flag accounts that spread falsehoods about climate change and collaborate on targeted educational campaigns,” states a study published last week in Scientific Reports.

Without ever defining the term, the article states that climate change “denialism” persists in the United States, with estimates ranging from 12 to 26 percent of the U.S. population. The researchers separated the population into the binary categories of “believers” and “deniers,” with no possibility of more nuanced positions.
