Environmental disinformation is getting weirder
During disasters, people flock to social media to share warnings, coordinate in real-time, and share images of the destruction. But others use the chaos of breaking news events to spread false information. This podcast episode explores the rise of fake news in the environmental space, from #HawaiiNotUkraine to a news site spreading climate disinformation in Wyoming. Plus, the hosts speak to the people fighting back, including a community fact-checker correcting earthquake disinformation on X.
