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.

    Please, there is no greater threat to the entirety of humanity than climate change and it is imperative that our infrastructure, culture, and lifestyles keep up with the science. Fossil fuels served their purpose to initially advance civilization; however, they were never a sustainable resource in the first place and now that climate change is already upon us, it is time to continue to advance civilization by moving to clean energy sources that aren’t going to devastate our future. All of the science and solutions already exist; now we just have to continue to implement them and lead the world in the right direction. Large companies like ExxonMobil do not like the clean direction that the world is now heading in, but ultimately it benefits them too since continuing to rely on their harmful product will only lead to total ruin. Thus, please, fight for what is just and help make the world a better and safer place to live.
