But, now two things have happened to make me think.
First, as you have seen, I have started to widen the circle of Fairfax Climate Friends by sharing our Fairfax Climate Action Blog posts on Facebook. I decided to do this because many people tell me the CAC page is so buried on the Fairfax website its impossible to find. I thought I would therefore experiment with Facebook to see if people were interested - thank you to those of you who are! (the climate is not waiting for the virus to go away, it is moving inexorably towards a very bad state).
Second, I read today in Scientific American, a source that seems pretty credible to me, that Facebook is now preventing posts from people who care about the environment, and they are refusing to follow their own policies regarding "alternate facts" with respect to the science of climate. (click here for the story).
So, what should people who care about science, who care about leaving a decent world to our children, do? What can we mere Fairfaxians do in the face of this corporate colossus?
I don't know. For all that I know, they may decide to censor me, and I may be talking to myself from now on.
Well, all the more reason - go to the Fairfax CAC website and sign up, and you will never have to worry about being in the dark! (click here).
Thank you, people of Fairfax, for caring about this issue. Together, we will make the changes needed to move us forward. Alternate facts notwithstanding.
