'YouTube is fighting back against climate change deniers by implementing a fact-checking box below user-uploaded videos on the controversial topic.
The system will surface information from Wikipedia or Britannica Encyclopedia to display factual information in bitesize chunks below videos on climate change.
YouTube already implemented the feature for videos on a slew of other contentious topics, including the MMR vaccination, the moon landing and UFOs.
However, this is the first time the platform has targeted climate change deniers.
The feature is the latest step from the Google-owned video platform in its battle to reduce the spread of misinformation and conspiracy theories on the service.
Users who upload their content to YouTube cannot stop the service displaying blurbs of factual information below their content.
The feature, which was first announced in March, was initially intended to be used for conspiracy theory videos on topics like the Oklahoma bombing and moon landing.
This month, YouTube has since expanded the fact-checking feature to include more controversial subjects, like the MMR vaccination and the perceived link to autism.
The introduction of climate change information marks the first time YouTube has strayed into the scientific realm.
At the moment, the scientific fact-checking blurbs are only visible to US-based users, however, YouTube is slowly rolling-out the feature to viewers worldwide.'
