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.

    At the direction of CEO and multi-millionaire Rex Tillerson, Exxon’s decades-long denial of Climate Change – which is now at a catastrophic stage – is a crime against humanity. Thousands have died, Millions more people will die. Sue the fuckers.

    Deception by Exxon was an assault on public health & the health of the planet for the sake of greed.
