The Big Tech Ministry of Truth Clamping Down on ‘Climate Change Denial’

The Big Tech Ministry of Truth Clamping Down on ‘Climate Change Denial’

“Internet platforms have let climate denialism run rampant for years.”

Many people have speculated that questioning climate change in any way will eventually be banned on social media. We just took one step closer to that reality.

Some big tech companies are now vowing to stamp out climate ‘denialism’ by treating it as misinformation.

Sara Fischer reports at Axios:

Big Tech finally reckons with climate denialism

Tech companies are cracking down on climate misinformation ahead of this year’s United Nations COP26 climate summit, in an effort to get ahead of an expected surge in climate misinformation during the global conference.

Why it matters: Internet platforms have let climate denialism run rampant for years. New efforts to curb climate misinformation are finally happening in the wake of a more serious global conversation around the crisis.

  • Ahead of the conference, which began Sunday, experts have warned that misinformation could undermine the event.
  • Extreme weather events this year have pushed climate deniers to adapt their strategies online, making them harder to combat by tech companies.

Driving the news: Twitter on Monday rolled out a new program designed to “pre-bunk” climate misinformation, or get ahead of false narratives about climate by exposing people to more accurate information about the crisis on its platform.

  • Last month, Google and its subsidiary YouTube took a much more drastic step, announcing a new policy that prohibits climate deniers from being able to monetize their content.
  • In September, Facebook introduced new measures intended to counter misinformation about climate change after expanding an online portal meant to counter such misinformation in February.

Just as concerns about the pandemic are starting to ebb, the left is suddenly talking a lot more about climate change. Do you think that’s a coincidence, or do you think that they’re simply looking for a new way to control people’s lives?

By the way, do you find anything a little strange about the term “pre-bunk?”

And what about all the world leaders who just flew to Scotland in their own jets to discuss climate change? Are we supposed to just ignore that?

Have you seen the images of Biden’s motorcade?

Much like COVID, the people telling us to be concerned about climate change don’t seem very concerned about climate change.

Lavrentiy Garland has his boilerplate ‘climate deniers’ are ‘domestic terrorists’ memo almost ready to go.

It only needs a few finishing touches — like a couple/few false flag ops to note — and the right timing.

    The real DENIERS are the left, who don’t understand that Science doesn’t have a “cut-off date” and that real SCIENCE isn’t afraid of being challenged !!!

Big Tech takes a knee when politically congruent (“=”) for single/central/monopolistic favors.

This is what happens when you combine those who worship at the false altars of the woke world, at its temple in Davos and accept junk science

The Earth system is semi-stable. Climate (i.e. 30-year period) change happens over irregular intervals and spans in time and space. The climate change in our history has included record low (ice age) and high (warm period) temperatures preceding and start of the 20th century, and perturbations from hot to cold to hot to warm over more than a century. There is no evidence that climate change today is either unprecedented, catastrophic, or progressive (i.e. monotonic), other than, for example, that forced by the Blacktop Effect (BTE) (e.g. urban heat islands, photovoltaic farms), rising waters with industrial subsidence processes (e.g. ocean-front construction), and Green gauntlet and blight with intermittent/renewables. That said, go green, not Green.

    The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has announced that they have identified: NO Discernable Future Where Climate Change Poses An Existential Threat.

      Really! No wonder the crackdown is so aggressive then. They have no foundation at all for their bs, so they have to up the surveillance and force.

Big Tech and Big Media conspired to overwhelmingly influence the 2020 election. Giddy with their success, they’re now openly gaslighting the public on various topics including COVID and CRT. So of course, why not go all-in with “Climate Crisis” too? Whatever it takes to push the US economy past the brink and bring the Cloward-Piven strategy to reality.

In the eyes of Big Tech, there is only one valid opinion on any given topic. Any other opinion is “misinformation.” Their “fact checkers” will base all their conclusions on this one valid opinion.

When their supposedly valid opinion is shown to be false (eg a lab not being a possible source of WuFlu), they go back and modify all their previous material to make it look like they were right all along.

Don’t worry. Big Brother will look out for you and tell you what to think. (I guess I should change that to “Big Sibling” to keep from being gender-phobic!)

No doubt many of us here remember their dire predictions of “the coming ice age” and “we’re going to run out of oil and there will be mass starvation by 2000” which, oddly enough, failed to materialize. With that inoculation against their propaganda, they couldn’t scare us the first time around with “Global Warming !!1!11!”

Hence “covid” – a pretext to control behavior via the use of fear and manipulation.

Flush with success over that global panic, they’re merely turning back to the “climate change” nonsense, implementing some of the tricks & tips they’ve learned from their “covid” lockdowns.

Scare the bejeezus out of people, and you can convince them to do ANYTHING “for their own good.” (Well, except for Lincoln’s observation about not being able to fool all the people all of the time.)

Is it little wonder they seek to control the narrative? Can’t have the sheeple waking up now, can we? They know they can’t afford to let the people hear anything other than approved scientific viewpoints propaganda.

    ALL of their “dire predictions” have failed to materialize. But like prophets of doom who declare the world about to end, when proven wrong they simply move the date and increase their stridency.

A new leftist clarion call. Racism has become a stale obsession.

Climate science has no adult peer review. Their stuff ought to have been reviewed by experts in the tools they use (fluid dynamics, statistics of stationary time series, etc.) not by other climate scientists. As it is, traditional mistakes became blessed and continued.

Now those experts will be banned ahead of time as well.

You can notice that not a single climate science paper exhibits any trace of curiosity, curiosity being a hallmark of actual science papers.

This is woke code for suppression of any well founded scientific views and dissenting perspectives that question the junk science basis of climate change. Remember-environmentalists are like watermelon-green on the outside and red on the inside and like all Marxists-love the good things in life like private jets and to regulate thee but not me

“Internet platforms have let climate denialism run rampant for years.”

In our Brave New World, “loophole” is defined as “any freedom you still have.”

it’s not “climate deniers”; nobody in their right mind denies that the climate changes continuously, it’s global warming due to anthropogenic interference that the “deniers” object to (strenuously).
unless a problem is properly defined, arguing the incorrect hypothesis becomes a total waste of time; or is that the whole point?

I wonder if you can get banned by calling it “Global Warming”. I’d lay money that you can … because that’s how the left is.

How many cars will be in Joe Biden’s Naptime Motorcade today?

antisocialjustice | November 3, 2021 at 10:56 pm

the climate stuff is going to be how they get people into camps. Wait and see.

I don’t see anybody in. Congress asking Greta the parrot, nor AOC, about specific plans for the proper disposal of the billions of solar panels that will stop working after 20 years, nor about these panels being built by child laborers in China; nor about the proper disposal of the wind turbines that lay around totally useless as a result of hurricanes and what not.
I also wonder why nobody has pointed out to B Gates about being responsible for the mountains of electronics of his invention that become obsolete after a short use so we keep making him obscenely rich. Aren’t these one of the main sources of pollution?
