Summary With a dataset of 195 accounts and 48,700 posts, a report by Stop Funding Heat finds an average range of 818,000 to 1.36 million views of climate misinformation each day on Facebook. Just 3.6% of this content has been fact-checked. This report also finds that Facebook continues to directly receive thousands of dollars while placing climate misinformation on its advertising platform. This issue has an easy fix, was raised over a year ago, and nothing has been done.
