Facebook expands climate change center to obtain credible information

Facebook Inc said Thursday that it is expanding its climate science information center to several countries and adding new features such as a section with facts that debunk common climate myths. The social media giant had launched the center in September to raise credible sources on climate change amid mounting criticism for its role in spreading disinformation on the issue.

The center, which is already present in France, Germany, Great Britain and the United States, will be available in Belgium, Brazil, Canada, India and Indonesia, among other countries starting Thursday, Facebook he said in a blog post at https://about.fb.com/news/2021/02/connecting-people-with-credible-climate-change-information.
