Block sites linked to climate change denial

Image from store Climate Block
Description from store Climate Block is a free Chrome extension for blocking publications linked to climate-change denial, such as all media owned by NewsCorp. Visiting these websites creates revenue for climate change deniers. Can we really afford that? Install Climate Block now to instantly block these websites and stop the spread of climate change denial. ★ Easy Customisation Need to visit a site just once? No problem. Use the “Allow this time” button and hit refresh to view the site. If you want to remove a website permanently from the block list, select ”Always allow this website”, or “Edit Blocked List” to toggle websites on/off. You can find the list of blocked sites in the Climate Block addon preferences. ★ We Respect your Privacy Climate Block does not track, store, retain or record any of the websites you visit, or your personal data. We only ask permission to see website URL so that Climate Block can operate. ★ Why these websites? The operators of the websites on the Climate Block list are funded, in part, directly or indirectly, by groups that want you to ignore rising sea levels, burning forests and warming oceans. Misinformation about climate change stops us from taking action and preparing for the changes that are already happening. Installing Climate Block means we stop supporting these messages, and stop funding them. Thanks to Wesley Branton for some of the initial code from WebsiteBlocker, @matcarpenter for some of the site list ByeRupert and the Murdoch Blocker list from @emilyapocalypse.

  • (2020-11-21) TheNorwayMaple: I was already expecting to give it a 3 star rating, given that the climate denial label "disinform" has picked up its fair share of disapplication, in this case groups trying to appeal to the voters and running ads that benefit from the way our food gets to us. But rather than block a certain climate change skeptic site surely funded by if not explicitly by such an enterprise, all included in the list are mainstream right of Stalin sites like WSJ and Harper Collins that even propagate Howard Zinn's A People's History of America. While technically sound apart from not allowing adding sites, this is pure disinformation.
  • (2020-08-04) Sindile Wren: This extension is INVALUABLE for those with a CONSCIENCE and a must for RESPONSIBLE CRITICAL THINKERS. FACTS & SCIENCE matter... NOW especially... and more than ever before. To knowingly support BUSINESSES, ORGANIZATIONS & LEADERSHIP with ANTI-SCIENCE agendas is UNCONSCIONABLE at this critical time for our planet!🌎 "Climate Block" is a great tool, helpful even to those who do their homework, already aware of the big players, known for propagating MISINFORMATION. You provide me with an additional layer of defense. Thanks so much!🙏
