Desinformação e Meio Ambiente:

O caso das Queimadas no Pantanal Brasileiro

Keywords: desinformação., meio ambiente, facebook, discurso, circulação

Abstract

O presente trabalho busca discutir as características do discurso desinformativo sobre meio ambiente no Facebook, trazendo como estudo de caso as queimadas no Pantanal Brasileiro. A partir de um conjunto de dados de 147.362 publicações de páginas e grupos públicos no Facebook, obtidas através do CrowdTangle, utilizamos uma abordagem de métodos mistos, com Análise de Redes Sociais e Análise Crítica de Discurso para compreender como acontecem a circulação e os enquadramentos discursivos da desinformação. Nossos resultados apontam para uma circulação polarizada do discurso desinformativo, principalmente por grupos de apoiadores do presidente brasileiro Jair Bolsonaro com estratégias focadas no sensacionalismo e no alinhamento político. A multimodalidade e a circulação de discursos nativos do Facebook é outro resultado relevante. Notamos, portanto, que a pauta do meio ambiente é apropriada para um debate político e não necessariamente relacionado à preservação ambiental.
