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.

    Our environment is of all of our responsibility.

    Let’s show respect and honor in keeping it well and alive, otherwise we have no place to live.

    Well, I just want to clarify about what’s going on with Exxon & why they didn’t even know about Climate Change until now. You see they keep denying about whether climate change has been a problem to many Americans, & I bet most people do. I guess Exxon just doesn’t get about half of it, & I’m hoping that politicians are getting the answer. I think Attorney Generals throughout the country are doing the right thing to investigate what’s going & that we need to transition to greener, efficient energy & that they must go to court. I know Exxon has been profiting & denying climate for so long, & now they to change it so that they need to become a better, responsible company.

    This sounds like a Big Tobacco rerun. Exxon should be held accountable.
