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 Secretary of the Interior should be ashamed of himself.

    Recent fires in California have shattered lives and exhausted fire-fighters.

    Please do not ignore us, Secretary Zinke. We will not forget about you.

    Climate change is the most important issue. For Exxon to have known about the inevitable effects of endless burning of fossil fuels is indeed a giant fraud on all humanity. Please continue to investigate. We have the CEO of Exxon as our Secretary of State!!!!
