YouTube—
20% of the top 100 videos delivered by a search for “global warming” are climate misinformation videos.
70% of the time users spend on your platform is driven by recommendations.
Recommending and promoting videos containing false information about climate change is damaging our planet and all the creatures that inhabit it.
As Greenpeace said:
"If we're going to stop the climate crisis, we need tech and social media companies like YouTube to be part of the solution, not part of the problem.”
In June, you removed thousands of videos promoting white supremacy and extremist ideology. The threat to our planet is no less severe. Once again, we are calling on you to do the right thing. It may be YouTube, but it’s Our Planet.

Thank you,
Protect Endangered Species
