Demand the Progressive Policy Institute Stop Selling off our Values

We stand at a pivotal time in the climate justice fight -- but too many bad actors, Democrats and Republican alike, continue to promote the fossil fuel industry over humanity. 

The Progressive Policy Institute is at the top of the list. Despite the think tank’s Democratic lineage -- it was “Bill Clinton’s ideas mill” during the 1990s -- it now represents Exxon. PPI is employing a fossil fuel company’s hired gun and former coal lobbyist to oppose “Exxon Knew” litigation -- lawsuits brought against Exxon and other fossil fuel behemoths for what they knew, yet concealed from the public, about climate change decades ago.

Enough is enough. Add your name today to help us hold these bad actors accountable. 

PETITION TEXT: 

 

Progressive Policy Institute: As progressives who believe in fighting for bold action to tackle the climate crisis, we won’t sit quietly as you promote the fossil fuel industry’s agenda. Cease your work on behalf of Exxon and other fossil fuel companies.

    For over 50 years I have fought for a CLEAN air, water and land. I never understood why “energy companies” weren’t working toward sustainable and clean fuels when they had the technology. They knew the damage being done, they chose money over the lives of BILLIONS of species. Time to take away the only thing they care about. Since they refuse to EVOLVE, We have to eliminate their financial support! They’ve had more than enough time to make changes. Now I don’t care if they go the way of the Whaling Industry, or the companies that provided Ice for Ice boxes. Better for them to go extinct, than to let them continue killing us and our planet!

    The PPI is actually a Centrist Establisnment Democrat Organization. They want to “Compromise” things like Healthcare and Environmental Concerns.


    They only help people get disillusioned with the Democratic Party and Support Fake Right Wing Populists.

    Stop coddling conservatives. Exxon knew about climate change decades ago but chose profit over people. Period. Protecting them makes you a reactionary group, hardly a progressive one. So, either change your name or knock it off.
