According to a new study by Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH), Breitbart is among ten publishers who play a huge role in climate denial on the Internet and is responsible for 70% of the content on the subject.

An example presented in the report was a Breitbart article in March that suggested the Green New Deal would lead to nationwide lockdowns if implemented.

“Every great environmental figure [and] climate activist praised COVID [coronavirus] blocks as essentially a model for what we should do with the climate, “one part of the article reads.

CCDH refers to these publishers as “The Toxic Ten”. You can read the full report HERE.

The list of publications includes marginal websites on the far right:

  • Breitbart
  • The Western newspaper
  • Newsmax
  • Town Hall Media
  • Media Research Center
  • The Washington Times
  • The federalist cards
  • The daily thread
  • Russian state media (rt.com and sputniknews.com)
  • The Patriot Mail

“When you put it all together, you have these two industries, Big Oil and Big Tech, and they are the two industries that pose the greatest threat to the survival of our species,” She said Imran Ahmed, managing director of the CCDH.
