Favourite publication of Ford's Energy Minster promotes anti-climate change propaganda, site owner is connected to the Koch brothers - 2019-11-28
This past Monday, Ontario Energy Minister, Greg Rickford, was defending his government's decision to spend $230 million to scrap renewable energy projects in the province. In his defense, Rickford cited an article from Climate Change Dispatch, known for spreading fake news that denies climate change. The Minister went on to call the blog one of his "favourite periodicals."
Climate Change Dispatch, is criticized by independent fact-checkers for having moderate levels of conspiracy theories, and extremely high levels of pseudo-science. They state, "essentially, this is a website that promotes anti-climate change propaganda."
Articles featured in the blog contain headlines like "The Myth of Climate Change," and "How Al Gore Built the Global Warming Fraud." Writers on the blog also regularly attack climate activists, like Greta Thunberg, and scientific organizations like the IPCC.
