Climate change is an enormous crisis facing the global population.
By blocking these climate change sites from your ads, brans can reduce their income and in turn reduce their impact. Clicks from these sites aren't just a waste of money – you won't find many good customers on these sites – but by taking action you're playing a vital role in pushing back against the spread of misinformation and, in turn, supporting the fight against climate change denialism.
We've identified GoogleAds-funded misinformation sites that we hope brands will take action against as they are doing some of the worst damage when it comes to spreading climate change misinformation. They are:
