Did WEF Order Arrests Of Climate Change Deniers?!

Did the WEF order world governments to start arresting climate change deniers?!

Take a look at the viral claims, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : WEF Orders Arrests Of Climate Change Deniers!

People are sharing an article by The People’s Voice (formerly NewsPunch), suggesting or claiming that the World Economic Forum (WEF) just ordered world governments to arrest climate change deniers!

Here is an excerpt from the article, which is pretty long, so feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

WEF Orders World Govt’s To Begin Arresting ‘Climate Deniers’

The World Economic Forum (WEF) has ordered world governments to being arresting citizens to refuse to believe in man-made climate change.

Truth : WEF Did Not Order Arrests Of Climate Change Deniers!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created about the WEF, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : It Was An Article, Not A Memo

First, let me just point out that it was a World Economic Forum article (link here), and not a memo.

Unlike an article, a memo – short for memorandum – is a brief written record / reminder of the author’s memory, or to serve as a quick summary of a meeting or discussion.

The article was also written by two authors – John Letzing and Minji Sung, not a single author as claimed in The People’s Voice article.

Fact #2 : Article Was About Rights-Based Climate Lawsuits

The WEF article did not call “climate inaction” a “human rights violation” as claimed in The People’s Voice article.

In fact, the title of the article questioned that – Is climate inaction a human rights violation?

The WEF article also pointed out that “rights-based climate litigation” has “a mixed track record“.

Fact #3 : WEF Did Not Order Any Arrest

Nowhere in the entire WEF article did anyone call for the arrest of any climate change denier.

In fact, the words “arrest” or “arresting” do not appear a single time in the entire WEF article.

Just to be clear – issuing a lawsuit against someone or an organisation does not mean you are ordering them to be arrested.

Fact #4 : The People’s Voice Offered Zero Evidence

Interestingly, The People’s Voice article itself has not offered any evidence that the WEF ordered world governments to arrest anyone, much less “citizens [who] refuse to believe in man-made climate change”.

In fact, the words “arrest” or “arresting” only appear twice in its entire article. Once in the title, and once in its byline:

WEF Orders World Govt’s To Begin Arresting ‘Climate Deniers’

The World Economic Forum (WEF) has ordered world governments to being arresting citizens to refuse to believe in man-made climate change.

That's it. There is no other mention of the words "arrest" or "arresting" anywhere else in The People's Voice article.

Fact #5 : The People's Voice Is A Fake News Website

The People's Voice is the new name / brand for NewsPunch, which possibly changed its name because its brand has been so thoroughly discredited and made worthless.

Like Real Raw News, NewPunch was a FAKE NEWS website that capitalises on making shocking but fake stories to generate page views and money.

It was founded as Your News Wire in 2014, before being rebranded as NewsPunch in November 2018. A 2017 BuzzFeed report identified NewsPunch as the second-largest source of popular fake news spread on Facebook that year.

Its articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should NEVER share anything from NewsPunch / The People's Voice.  Here are some of its fake stories that I personally fact checked earlier:
