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.

    please join other AG’s and fight for our future! I live in Detroit and we contend with so many local justice issues like hazardous waste, Marathon refinery, water shutoffs, illegal foreclosures, that no one here has time to look at big picture issues, like the very industry that is mostly responsible for climate change. We are counting on you to help move this along, while we continue to work to just survive here.

    Exxon and all the rest who transport pollutants need to be forced to use double-hulled tankers for the vessel they use!! This should have been a law a long, long time ago!

    Our environment is precious. Michiganders know the value of clean water in “Pure Michigan.” Hold Exxon accountable.

    If we can at least hinder Exxon and make it’s machinations public, other oil companies might be worried enough to change their behavior. They might even step up their efforts to produce sustainable fuel.

    In this most famous of car producing states, it is important to show the world that it’s possible to transport ourselves without devastating the environment.
