Whether it’s swallowing bleach to treat Covid or casting climate change as a Chinese conspiracy, disinformation takes nutty ideas from fringes and mainstreams them into our popular discourse. At best, it’s hilarious – seen how windmills kill dolphins anyone? But mostly it’s just sad and sometimes tragic.

What is disinformation? How is it different from misinformation? Who are the main perpetrators and the victims? No one knows more about this than Byron Clark, author of ‘Fear: New Zealand’s Hostile Underworld of Extremists’ and Mandy Henk an advocate for healthy, just, and vibrant digital communities.

Together they are offering a Climate Disinformation Night Class, consisting of eight-week, Zoom-based sessions via Tohatoha, an organisation creating a fairer digital world.
