Facebook is going after global warming “misinformation.” Translation: they’re censoring

Remember back in May of 2020, when Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said, “I just believe strongly that Facebook shouldn’t be the arbiter of truth of everything that people say online”? Well, he lied.

Facebook now is planning on being an “arbiter of truth” for global warming, Breitbart reports

The “arbiter[s] of truth”

According to Breitbart, Facebook will specifically be taking measures against user posts about global warming that it believes are in some way false.

The specific steps that Facebook will take to combat perceived “misinformation” are unclear. At a minimum, it appears that we can expect such things as warning labels on posts. But, what the outlet hasn’t made clear is whether it would actually remove a post or censor a user.

According to Breitbart, “Facebook stated that it plans to rely on professionals from George Mason University, the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication, and the University of Cambridge to fact-check climate change posts.”

“Science-based information”

Some readers may remember that Facebook, back in September 2020, did remove a report that falsely claimed that the wildfires that were taking place in Oregon were started by members of the far-left group Antifa.

As reported by CNBC at the time, Facebook ended up launching “a new information hub to provide its users with ‘science-based information’ about climate change.”

The feature itself is called the Climate Science Information Center,” which as CNBC reports, provides “Facebook users with facts, figures, and data from factual sources.”

Some of the “factual sources” include the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, U.N. Environment Programme, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, World Meteorological Organization, and the Met Office.

The changes reported by Breitbart will come as an addition to Facebook’s climate change information hub.

Its high time to remove Section 230 protection

We, of course, have already seen Facebook and other social media sites be the arbiters of truth in other areas, such as the 2020 election. Many argue that these acts put them in the category of “editors” meaning that they should not be getting Section 230’s liability protection from users.

There have been calls – even somewhat bipartisan calls – to, accordingly, remove this Section 230 protection for Big Tech. But, thus far, no progress has been made in this direction.

  1. First off I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts
    before writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting
    my thoughts out. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15
    minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to
    begin. Any suggestions or hints? Thanks!

  3. People who still even use Facecrap are insane! I moved to MEWE in December 2019 and NOT once have I been censored, suspended, nothing… and I post a hell of a lot of political information.

    So if you still use Facecrap, I feel sorry for you! And your personal information which they do sell!

    1. JDavis..got thrown off facebook two years ago for trashing Nancy Pelosi and other politicians who well deserve it. Big waste of time. It is time to remove Sec. 230 of the Communications Act and regulate US internet traffic like telephones (common carrier)….we don’t get cut off talking on our phones and the same needs to happen with the internet.

  4. Any social post should be protected under the first where they want to hide, make them pay billions for suppression of the first. Enough of their lies and blocking .

  5. IT IS TIME FOR EVERYONE TO LEAVE FACEBOOK AND TWITTER…THE CENSORING IS THE BEGINNING OF THE COMMUNIST WAY…STOP THEM WITH THE PRESS OF YOUR FINGERS

    1. TY Mary. quite accurate statement “Mind Control” is well underway in the good ole US of A. FB and Twitter do not deserve any support whatsoeverr as they are part of the problem.

  6. Hi there, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam remarks?
    If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you can advise?

    I get so much lately it’s driving me mad so any help is very much appreciated.

  7. If she was appointed by Obama that tells me all I need to know. If the Biden people endorse her, and say she is qualified, judging form the rest of the qualified people the Biden has appointed. It does not bode well for her. If she is to be appointed while Biden is in office then someone on the Supreme Court had better die soon.

  8. It was all Cuomo’s fault;
    It was not Trump playing political football ( as that idiot DeRosa said ) that made the mess it was Cuomo. When he ordered infected people into the nursing homes he knew what he was doing. He was told by doctors, advisors, and others not to do this. But he went ahead and did it anyway. So quit being stupid and blaming Trump for what Cuomo did. As far as what Chris and Andrew did on CNN was nothing more than a deflection campaign, to blame Trump, and I guess it must have worked to some degree as the idiot DeRosa believed it.

  9. Well, I observed that Global Warming visited Texas last week down to 2 below zero .. . .fact check that …..

  10. I believe everything climate scientists tell us about the future weather. NOT!!! Face it, most of the time they can’t even get next weeks weather correct. Now they expect us to believe what they say about the weather/climate years from now. If they were correct, New York City would be flooded and most of the sea shore cities would be in great danger. I think they make up scary stuff so their federal research funding doesn’t get cut off.

  11. Facebook isn’t arbitraters of anything. I thought they were a social media site for people to state their opinion and nothing more. They were not elected so they have no business telling what’s right or what’s wrong. People can do their own fact checking. PERIOD

  12. This would not happen if our politicians weren’t crooked. Facebook banned a whole country, Australia, from Facebook. That country stood up to Facebook, because of honest politicians. EU countries are also starting to fight back.

  13. Hello! I realize this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask.

    Does managing a well-established blog like yours take a lot of work?
    I am brand new to writing a blog however I do write in my journal on a daily basis.
    I’d like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for new aspiring bloggers.
    Appreciate it!

  14. FACEBOOK: Let me save you some trouble. The last time I checked GOD was in charge of global warming!!! He created the elements and He rules them!!!

  15. Your style is very unique compared to other people I have read stuff from.

    Thank you for posting when you have the opportunity, Guess I will just book mark this site.

  16. From the 1940s thru the 1990s the deep state govt controlled the networks, ABC,CBS,NBC, as well as the print media. They dictated not only what events we could think about, but also how we thought about events. From the 1990s through the 2010s, the internet offered more freedom of access to info that then loosened the deep state’s grip on what events we could think about. That led not only to exposing the deep state’s corruption and control, but also to electing people like Donald Trump, to help set the US back on a more honest track.
    But the deep state would not be deterred and they roared back with a vengeance. Saul Alinsky has infected our hallowed halls of learning, justice and govt, for decades and two of his most visible ardent supporters, Hillary and Obama, exemplify his corruptive effect on our social and political standards. And now we see the deep state align once again with the media oligarch Alinskyites, Bezos, Dorsey, Gates and Zuckerberg, to reinforce their control of our access to information, and to allow them to dominate, once again, what we could see and think about and how we should think about those things.
    Censorship is back, this time with a more severe totalitarian grip, and they are not about to let go, all in the name of unity. This on a country that was born out of challenging all govt control and accepting no tokens. Coalition building became our hallmark, our Constitution, and our way of life. Our legacy. Coalition building was how we united our states. But the deep state has corrupted and corroded that way of life and seeks to rule by brute force, by punishing those who would speak out against them, and by doling out govt stipends to those who would kneel under to their rule. Decision-making time is fast approaching for these once United States of America. To Stand or to Kneel! That is how we move on from here. Stand up, folks, and resist! Build the new coalitions necessary to move us forward. Ruling by Executive Orders is not coalition building. It is not American.
