The giant research includes propaganda that goes against the scientific consensus on climate change.
Late Thursday, Google announced that it is destroying content that makes misleading or inaccurate claims about climate change. As a result, content that undermines or rejects scientific consensus about anthropological climate change will not be accompanied by Google ads. In addition, Google no longer displays any ads that "contradict the scientifically proven consensus on the existence and causes of climate change".
READ MORE Warm weather is likely to lead to greater fires in California with a worldwide public health crisis in the midst of natural disasters, at least in part due to human-induced climate change. False information and blatant lies are not only frustrating but also dangerous. Google has been criticized for its role in spreading misinformation, and many people are unhappy with it. People who pay for ads don't want their ads running alongside videos full of misinformation, and content creators don't want their products to be interrupted with error-filled ads.
Message received, says Google. "We've heard directly from a growing number of our advertising partners and publishers who have expressed concern about ads being placed alongside false claims about climate change," Google said. Advertisers simply don't want their ads to appear alongside this content. Publishers and creators don't want ads advertising these claims to appear on their pages or videos.
Google will use its usual set of human eyes and automated tools to implement this policy in November.
Soon there will be no more climate-change-denying ads on Google
