Exxon Petition to State AGs

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. 

New York State’s Attorney General already started an investigation. California’s AG started an investigation, and earned her a Climate Hawks Vote endorsement. Maryland's AG listened to your petition and started an investigation. Massachusetts’ AG started an investigation. Now AGs across the country are thinking about following suit. But they need to know that we’re watching, and that we demand they act now.

These sorts of investigations are what convinced America about the evil of Big Tobacco -- it’s time for Big Oil to get the same treatment.

So please, join the call: Exxon’s day in court has come -- they need to tell the truth in court, and face the consequences of their lies and fraud.

Launch a prosecution of Exxon and its fellow fossil-fuel companies for deliberate and malicious climate deception.

    What if these bozos are wrong? Do they care about what sort of mess they’ll be leaving their children, whom they presumably love, or maybe they believe they’ll ride it out deep in some cave in the Ozarks? If so, they better pray they win their future elections, lest they find themselves left out in the rain and rising tides…

    “There’s a beacon in the sky, meant to catch your eye…”, Happy Rhodes. Dispelling the scarcity based interlocking and laced global economic, fossil fuel fueled, cannibalistic systems of the corporate structure’s convolution, and thereby realizing nature’s abundance based reality of eternal, free, solar energy, through abolition of that fossil fuel dictated defacto-slavery, will realize the evolution’s definition of power as life, growth, consciousness, realizing spiritual flight’s potential, etc., and dispel the notsee definition of power as manipulation to extinction and total destruction of the earth, etc., only if we struggle with their vacuum-up model of economics, that supposedly garner ever increasing amounts of delusional profits, pleasures and powers, in ever increasingly cyclical and centralizing patterns. This is why ‘keeping it in the ground’, etc., in the direction of complete abolition of non-renewable energy use is the new real civil rights movement. An injustice to any is an injustice to all, and if it isn’t address individually, it becomes a global injustice as well. “You can’t struggle with the man’s house (mansion) using the man’s tools”, Audrey Lourdes, “be the change you wish to see in the world”, “the root of all oppression lies in (supposed) science”, Gandhi. No one must be conned by the convolution, divide and conquer only works on the divided, life is indivisible, as your potential is illimitable.   reality

    The fossil fuel companies absolutely knew what they were doing. They need to be fined massive amounts to be used for speeding up the transition to solar and wind.
