The Democrats puppet Elisabeth Warren wants Facebook to forbid “climate deniers”.
Lawmakers, including Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), have pledged to take action against the company if it does not do more to stop the reach of climate falsehoods.
Warren said the company must be held accountable for its role in the climate crisis and that the report “reveals how Facebook lets climate deniers spread dangerous junk to millions of people.”
“We have repeatedly asked Facebook to close the loopholes that allow misinformation to run rampant on its platform, but its leadership would rather make a quick buck while our planet burns, sea levels rise, and communities — disproportionately Black and Brown — suffer,” she said in a statement.
The InfluenceMap research shows that climate disinformation ads from PragerU ran for weeks after Facebook committed itself to a crackdown on climate science disinformation — including as recently as a few days ago.
The reach of climate denial groups is also potentially much larger than the research suggests. The sample of groups analyzed by InfluenceMap did not include other groups that routinely sow climate falsehoods, such as the Heartland Institute, Cato Institute and Daily Caller News Foundation.
“Facebook allows these ads to go out under the radar and to have potentially devastating effects within the target population before anyone who knows what they’re talking about [and] has any chance to respond and point out that what’s being spread is a pack of lies,” Whitehouse said.
