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.

    Mega-corporations need to be called out and investigated for their lies and backroom decisions which are harming this planet and residents of the planet. I intend that my children and grandchildren have a safe and healthy planet to be healthy and safe from mega-corporations like Exxon.

    Deception is the driving force of the White House leadership. I do not believe or want it to be a motivating factor in MN, SO, investigate EXXON and its fossil-fuel companies deception.

    Please investigate Exxon and other fossil fuel companies for their deception regarding climate change. They knew before ordinary folks of the damage they were encouraging.

    Minnesota should lend it voice in calling for disclosure and accountability for Exxon’s climate change denying messaging.

    Attorney General Ellison, let’s do this. INVESTIGATE EXXON AND ITS FELLOW FOSSIL-FUEL COMPANIES FOR DELIBERATE AND MALICIOUS CLIMATE DECEPTION so we can hold those who are contributing to the destruction of our planet accountable.

    Thank you.
