Climate disinformation flooded social media at unprecedented levels in 2022
A new report shows that as diplomats convened at the United Nations’ climate summit last November, the fossil fuel industry was investing millions of dollars in an effort to confuse and misinform the public about the harms caused by their products.
The campaigns included paid ads on Facebook, the hijacking of hashtags on Twitter, and messaging that defined climate change as a hoax.
But there’s an easy way for you to fight this climate information war: by embracing independently financed journalism from publications like Drilled, Grist, Heated, and The Lever.
