"If we think about the signature challenge of our time, it really is the flow of misinformation and disinformation. It reverberates across personal health, public health, planetary health, and politics. Everything from coronary disease to climate change is contaminated by endless noisy nonsense in the realm of misinformation and disinformation. And there really are few novel remedies to address that.”
