Verified Truth is Power [and we don't give it up]

That the truth the environment is at threat is not new, today's article in the Guardian announcing that "Many researchers are fleeing the platform, unnerved by the surge in climate misinformation since Musk’s chaotic takeover " is just confirming what we already knew: it is time for #researchhubs #scientists #academies #education #researchers #publishers to reconsider how they transfer knowledge and opt for #secure#verifiedtruth as the new normal.

Research dated 2020 suggests that the misinformation network begins with funding supplied by corporate and philanthropic actors with a vested interest in climate change – particularly in fossil fuels. This money goes to a range of groups involved in producing misinformation. These groups – referred to variously as the “climate change denial machine” and “organized disinformation campaigns” – include political and religious organizations, contrarian scientists and online groups masquerading as grassroots organizations (known as “astroturfing”). People in positions of power, such as the media, politicians and prominent bloggers, then repeat and amplify this information in an “influencers echo chamber” and from there it reaches a wider audience.

A change is much needed. #covid lesson did teach us something [or not]? Collaboration is the only way to overcome global challenges, mistrust and misinformation are impediments we can't afford, we need new ecosystems where truth and trust feed each other to enhance and empower collaboration.

Knowledge is power and we can't give it up.

For those who don't know, QuTii is a non-profit initiative powered by TiiQu technologies. It is politically neutral, it aims to offer the open square for protecting, sharing, broadcasting, verifying and ensuring facts so that truth prevails.

A new category of experts is coming and we hope every researcher, specialist, scientist, technologist, and policies expert will want to join. This movement of knowledgeable people grows and builds trust and changes the way we work out the quest for information.

The AOTs continuously validate their competency through their co-validated contribution and provides open access to verified truth. We are just at the beginning but things are clear in our minds: we will not give up the right to contribute and benefit from truth.
