John Stossel, the host of “Stossel” on the Fox Business Network and the author of “No They Can’t! Why Government Fails—But Individuals Succeed,” said Facebook has censored his elaborated video questioning climate change alarmists.
He released a video in which some climate scientists argue that climate change is not a “crisis,” but instead just people adjusting to the changing temperatures.
The video features clips of a debate, that turned into a panel when the invited 30 to 40 climate change alarmists did not show up, Stossel moderated in 2019 at the Heartland Institute.
More than 25 million people watched it on Facebook, until recently censored by Emmanuel Vincent, a French Ph.D. graduate who started a group he calls “Climate Feedback” to fact-check contents by climate change alarmists
Stossel failed to have an interview with Vincent, but one of the members of his group named Patrick Brown, an assistant professor at San Jose State, agreed to conduct an interview.
When asked about the censoring, Brown revealed that he did not like how the video says America can adjust to rising sea levels by building dikes and doing other things as Holland has. He added that the idea was “not the mainstream view.”
The video also questioned the claim that hurricanes have gotten stronger, which Brown said was accurate but delivered in “a wrong tone,” as the “Climate Feedback” said it “misleads viewers.”
Stossel believes that skepticism about climate change being a “crisis” is still a question that deserves debate, not censorship.
