Becerra vs Exxon

Exxon knew about climate change in the 1970s. And surprise, surprise, they’ve been lying about it ever since -- they’ve spent tens of millions of dollars over the past forty years funding a climate denial industry that keeps the public in the dark and pressures lawmakers not to fix the problem.

We’re talking about what could be the largest case of fraud in human history. 

At Climate Hawks Vote, we’ve been on the forefront of demanding investigations - in fact, California Attorney General Kamala Harris’ promise to investigate Exxon led us to endorse her when she ran for Senate. But the investigation sidelined during the campaign. Now it’s time for her successor in the California Attorney General's office, Xavier Becerra, to step up. New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey have been leading the effort to uncover what Exxon knew - while Becerra remains silent.

California, which prides itself on its climate leadership, needs to join New York and Massachusetts in investigating and holding accountable Exxon.

Tell California Attorney General Xavier Becerra: Investigate Exxon and its fellow fossil-fuel companies for deliberate and malicious climate deception.

    As long as we have unethical, hypocritical, ruthless, soulless & greedy people in positions to deceive & destroy the American Taxpayers will continue to struggle for peace. Shameful isn’t it? May everyone of them reap what they sow and experience what they wish to impose on others.

    Before we knew of their deliberate deception, we sold all the ExxonMobil stock we inherited because we believed they were lying.

    Most of known for many years that fossil fuels add so much green house gasses causing climate change, global warming. Its a crisis, the evidence is very clear but the administration continues to deny the reality which is telling us little people that the administration does not give a damn.
