Nessel 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 Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel, 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 Nessel 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. Michigan needs to join New York and Massachusetts in investigating and holding Exxon accountable.

    Hold EXXON accountable. Their deception caused inaction and will cost lives.

    The petroleum people do not believe in taking care of their equipment to prevent dangerous spills. They are so worried about making more and more money that they could care less what happens to the environment. Time for their motives to be revealed and the companies forced to clean up their messes, and potential messes. They need to be stopped!

    Never forget the 11million gallons of Prudhoe crude spilled in Alaska’s Prince William Sound from the Exxon Valdez oil tanker!

    AG Nessel,

    It’s been years since the People of Michigan have had an advocate in the office of AG. We are glad and lucky to now have you working for our State.

    Do something positive every day, something significant every week. We know that you were left with a lot to do, because so much has been undone or ignored for too many years. Stay positive! We are with you!
