Ellison 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.

Now it’s time for newly elected Minnesota Attorney General and progressive icon Keith Ellison, to step up. Attorneys General from New York and Massachusetts have been leading the effort to uncover what Exxon knew -- and it’s time for Ellison to join the fight.

Earlier this month, the U.S. Supreme Court rejected Exxon’s last-ditch appeals to keep their lies to the public private. Minnesota needs to join New York and Massachusetts in investigating and holding Exxon accountable.

TELL MINNESOTA ATTORNEY GENERAL ELLISON: INVESTIGATE EXXON AND ITS FELLOW FOSSIL-FUEL COMPANIES FOR DELIBERATE AND MALICIOUS CLIMATE DECEPTION.

    As a current Science Teacher/Environmental Educator and a former Engineer, my top priorities have always been the three E’s – Energy, Environment and Education.


    I wholeheartedly encourage you to get involved in investigating Exxon and other fossil fuel companies for deliberate and malicious climate deception.


    What fossil fuel companies have been doing is quite similar to what cigarette companies did to cover up health problems caused by their products! Interesting!!

    AG Ellison,

    Please take on Exxon since they have done more damage than we know. We do know they lie AND likely cause more pollution than most companies.

    The worst of it is THAT this has been allowed. IT needs to Stop
