Climate groups demand Big Tech censor climate change “misinformation”

Oct 7, 2022 | Political News

Several climate change advocacy groups, including Friends of Earth and Greenpeace, have asked social media companies to treat “misinformation” about climate change like they do “hate speech” and opinions about Covid that go against government-backed authorities.

In a letter released on Tuesday, the groups also asked social media companies to be transparent about how they tackle climate disinformation and suggested that the company should report it under Europe’s Digital Service Act, which requires platforms to moderate “harmful” content.

The groups also demand that the platforms disclose data on content moderation of climate-related content.
