Kaul 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 Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul 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 Kaul 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. Wisconsin needs to join New York and Massachusetts in investigating and holding Exxon accountable.

    Please Wisconsin need to join New York and Massachusetts in investigating and holding Exxon accountable for being a part of funding a climate denial industry that keeps us in the dark and pressures lawmakers not to fix the problem. Our great state will only continue to be great and beautiful if we protect and value what we have.

    Please help us clean-up our communities and keep drinking water safe from chemical pollutions; not allowing any further contaminations before they begin through Big Ag, Big Oil, etc. I hope Wisconsinites agree we want to keep our lands free from dangerous pipelines and more mining, when better technologies exist to help us and our planet as a whole while time is against us! Thank you.

    The deception about fossil fuel caused climate change has endangered all life on planet Earth. The industry and its leaders need to be held responsible.
