Ford 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 Nevada Attorney General Aaron Ford 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 Ford 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. Nevada needs to join New York and Massachusetts in investigating and holding Exxon accountable.

    Dear AG Ford

    Please put a stop to this ridiculous denial of climate change and the perilous threat fossil fuels represent. Just today, scientists, concluded that our ocean waters had warmed enough to measure in a single year.

    This is not play play and the people driving our protection of our ecology do not believe in science, they don’t even read the reports.

    Exxon, as the other oil companies, has been a provocative and disingenuous contributor to the climate change problem for decades.

    We’ve been warned that in 12 years we will see monumental catastrophes if we don’t alter course now. None of us know if that is true, but when in doubt, our experts…people who pay daily attention to the details and have the equipment and intelligence to monitor and inform us of changes and dangers…it is smart to heed their alerts.

    Fossil fuels are over Mr. Ford and we all know it. Please investigate Exxon and all fossil-fuel companies who continue to mislead and develop more and better ways to extract oil. People in leadership roles have to step up now. From the robber barons to the 1950’s, top priority for the bottom line helped build our country and the world and everyone is grateful for that. Fortunately we evolve and there are lustier and longer lasting profit opportunities in clean fuel and serious dangers in the alternative. It’s time.Thank you, Wayne Umbertis
