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.

    The tentacles that lead from oil,fracking,ngl industries were/are far more destructive than tobacco ever was/is. Cover-ups, government contracts and strong manipulative collusion with government officials and the procedures and policies that steer this nation to corporate state oligarchy leaves its citizens misinformed with few options. Solar, wind,wave technologies and sustainable small organic farms and ranches creates far more jobs, healthier water,air and food security, a more robust economy and healthier citizenry. Exxon should pay BIG for its intentional profiteering and cover-up! Make an example of Exon It is not the only corporation that has deceived the public, Our lakes, rivers and oceans need cleaning up and that costs money. Make the decision-makers who profit from the degradation of our water, soil and air pay the bill.
