YouTube will now place Wikipedia entries about global warming below videos ‘refuting evidence of rising temperatures’

Daily Mail

YouTube is fighting back against climate change deniers by implementing a fact-checking box below user-uploaded videos on the controversial topic.

The system will surface information from Wikipedia or Britannica Encyclopedia to display factual information in bitesize chunks below videos on climate change.

YouTube already implemented the feature for videos on a slew of other contentious topics, including the MMR vaccination, the moon landing and UFOs.   

However, this is the first time the platform has targeted climate change deniers.

The feature is the latest step from the Google-owned video platform in its battle to reduce the spread of misinformation and conspiracy theories on the service.

Users who upload their content to YouTube cannot stop the service displaying blurbs of factual information below their content.

    Wikipedia? Open source website to substantiate their claims. Great, now trenchers can go edit Wiki to reflect the truth.

    This planet has active volcanos….the CO2 emissions are by far worse than human activity. The left unbridled will sterilize themselves and or commit suicide to save the planet. Bring back the incandescent light bulbs and leave me and my wood burning stove alone.
