-> The graphic in high resolution and in various file formats for download
The new corona virus COVID-19 has been infecting people all over the world for months - but false reports about the pandemic are spreading almost as quickly. Unfortunately, this is nothing special. Misleading information is also repeatedly released on many other scientific-related topics: on climate change as well as on the effectiveness of vaccinations or the health hazards of car exhaust fumes.
In the case of such false reports - regardless of the specific subject - the same tricks and tricks are used over and over again: For example, pseudo-experts are allowed to appear as counterpart to actual experts, one is suspecting secret conspiracies or engaging in so-called cherry-picking, so one collects from a large fund In terms of data, it selectively extracts those that fit your own thesis (and ignores all others).
Disinformation now has a catchy name: P-L-U-R-V
To enable laypeople to better understand the tricks of disinformation - and to recognize them in various campaigns - klimafakten.de has developed a large-format info poster: Based on the long-term work of John Cook, the founder of our partner portal SkepticalScience.com, and visually prepared by the Hamburg illustrator Marie-Pascale Gafinen explains the graphic to five methods of disinformation: pseudo-experts, logic errors, unfulfillable expectations, cherry-picking and conspiracy myths. Following the first letters of these five methods, the poster quickly had a name within the editorial team: PLURV.
Due to the high demand, shipping can take a little longer.
