‘Authoritarian behavior’…

Google was accused of authoritarian behavior after announcing YouTubers who deny climate change will be banned from making money on the tech giant’s platforms.

In a controversial statement issued Thursday, Google, which owns YouTube, announced that advertisers and publishers, as well as YouTube creators, will be prohibited from making ad revenue off content that contradicts ‘well-established scientific consensus around the existence and causes of climate change,’ Axios reported.

‘This includes content referring to climate change as a hoax or a scam, claims denying that long-term trends show the global climate is warming and claims denying that greenhouse gas emissions or human activity contribute to climate change.’
