Google to ban climate denial ads

Part of: Prelims and GS-III – Climate change; Environment 

Context Google will ban digital ads promoting false climate change claims from appearing next to other content.

  • The restrictions will prohibit ads for content that contradicts well-established scientific consensus around climate change.
  • It will help in limiting revenue for climate change deniers and stop the spread of misinformation on its platforms.
  • The new policy will also apply to YouTube, which last week announced a sweeping crackdown of vaccine misinformation.
