“With the consequences of inaction towards climate change becoming ever more catastrophic and dire, we believe you have a responsibility to your users to stop those seeking to blur the lines between facts based on climate science and those peddling pseudoscience,” the letter reportedly reads, also expressing that “the broader safeguards you have adopted have not sufficiently stemmed the tide of disinformation regarding climate change online.”Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Reddit didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. The office for McEachin also didn’t immediately respond. This comes as tech CEOs, including Zuckerberg, are set to testify before Congress this week over antitrust concerns.
