Fake (anti - climate) news and how to spot them

If you are born in a European country in the 1970s - like me - you might take things like free speech, a free press and the separation of powers in a democratic system for granted.

At the same time, there are always people who have a vested interest to influence the public opinion in a certain way - so far, so good and normal, you might say.

However, we are in 2024 and digital media and communication has a bigger influence on political decisions and peoples` opinion than ever. And with this comes the challenge that it is now harder than ever to differentiate between real news and facts and fake news.
