Skip to comments.YouTube's top related videos have a climate change denial problem (only 11.05 years left)
Posted on 01/18/2020 7:12:23 AM PST by Libloather
A new study claims that YouTube is rife with misinformation about climate change and that some major advertisers inadvertently have their ads running alongside these videos.
The new report comes from activist organization Avaaz, a relatively new global group that harnesses the power of collective action via campaigns and petitions. The Avaaz study found that not only were a significant number of climate change denial videos surfacing on the platform, but that YouTube's algorithm was sending viewers to even more of those types of videos.
Additionally, in a move that might actually cause YouTube to do something about it, Avaaz found dozens of big-name brands including Samsung, Uber, LOréal, Warner Brothers, and Nintendo have had their ads attached to climate change denial videos on the platform.
Also, while the climate change denial views presented in the videos Avaaz cites are incredibly troubling, it's worth noting that the information within doesn't necessarily violate YouTube's guidelines since it doesn't veer into hate speech, harassment, inciting violence or scams.

Oh, good grief.

Ah. Gotta change to guidelines, right?
Oh, AOC says she was just kidding about that...
Nothing that questions the proclamations of the liberal elite can be tollerated.
The only people in denial are those who refuse to debate.
