Twitter bans ads that promote climate change denial and contradict the “scientific consensus”, using the United Nations’ IPCC reports to inform its decisions  

“Twitter is tackling climate denialism as an Earth Day treat. The social media platform announced on Friday that it will now ban ads that spout climate change denial and propaganda.

That means blocking ads that are misleading and “contradict the scientific consensus on climate change.” That consensus is underscored by the recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report, which Twitter said would help inform its policy. The company said in its announcement that climate denial “shouldn’t be monetized” on the platform, and ads supporting it shouldn’t “detract from important conversations about the climate crisis.”
