Science misinformation campaigns should be combatted on the basis of recent research to be most effective
Research provides strategies to combat science misinformation campaigns - climate change short science news

Recent research on large-scale misinformation campaigns to undermine the science of climate change, financed by organizations that have a lot to lose in the transition to a low-carbon economy, has led scientists to formulate four key domains in a strategy to combat science misinformation.

These are public inoculation, legal strategies, political mechanisms, and financial transparency.

Activities in these domains should be coordinated in order to be effective. At its very essence, these activities should ultimately go to the root of the problem, which is the huge imbalance in spending between climate change opponents and those lobbying for new solutions, scientists conclude.
