Cranking up the temperature of the entire globe this much within little more than a century is, in fact, extraordinary, with the oceans alone absorbing the heat equivalent of five Hiroshima atomic … More AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce The Climate Crises is upon us, made worse by the War on Ukraine. For no other reason, then to save our Planet, the World should intervene to stop Putin’s invasion into Ukraine. Roll back the clock and act responsibly to prevent more Carbon Bombs. If we can’t prevent the use of more pipelines, Carbon and methane emissions, the timeline for 11 yrs more before we hit 1.5 degrees Celsius will close. Massive deaths will occur with the extinction of many species, our food and water supplies will dwindle and no one knows whether any of these trends can be reversed. Can we be proactive?
http://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2020/10/30/trump-twitter-domestic-disinformation/ While researchers believe there is a significant degree of automation powering Trump’s megaphone, they do not contend that he or his supporters routinely break Twitter’s rules. The company allows enthusiastic followers to use software to automatically retweet people, and though the company bans “bulk retweeting,” it does not disclose at what point frequent retweeting … More TheVoiceOfJoyce Misinformation on a grand scale comes from ex President Trump and followers, retweeting at an unprecedented rate. Misinformation abounds on Facebook and Twitter, their algorithms promote retweets and up until a few months ago, on Twitter, politicians were given an unlimited platform for their campaigns and fund raising. Twitter has just banned misinformation on Covid and elections. Facebook has not and allows misinformation to polarize American Society and our Politics. When you look at the volume of tweets and retweets at least 50% are automated. Trump learned how to weaponize Social Media in the run up to the 2016 election. His retweets have been successful thru his grass roots network, beginning with Trump Jr, Lin Wood, Powell and Steve Bannon. The alt right has been planning their messaging for 30 yrs. With the advent of Social Media, AI and the Social Media business model, there is no regulation of malicious content. Most Platforms, excluding Twitter recently and TikTok this week, allow politicians leeway to say whatever they want. Considering the harm to the Public, Social Media Platforms require Congressional Legislation to protect us from lies and misinformation that harms us and our Democracy. Unfortunately, Voices for Democracy and the truth are not equally represented.

TechScape: The unbearable sadness of Mark Zuckerberg “We urge rights-respecting democracies … More TheVoiceOfJoyce At least 10 previous Nobel Laureates for peace, have presented an open letter to the World’s leaders, requesting that they rein in Big Tech. Why? The Social Media platforms, business models, promote disinformation, hate and abuse, undermining Democracies everywhere, creating cultural divides. “We the People” are being manipulated by Big Techs Surveillance Capitalist models. They predict our behavior & sell our data to undermine our Democracy and target investigative journalism & journalists. The Nobel Laureates call upon the EU to strengthen their rules and enforce the compliance of Tech Platforms to remove disinformation algorithms. There is only one fact and Social Media Platforms create two realities, disrupting Democracy through their promotion of cultural divides. Robust laws and an investment in Investigative journalism, would highlight the disruptive business model of Tech Platforms, that divide us!
