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.


TELL MICHIGAN ATTORNEY GENERAL NESSEL: INVESTIGATE EXXON AND ITS FELLOW FOSSIL-FUEL COMPANIES FOR DELIBERATE AND MALICIOUS CLIMATE DECEPTION.

    Michigan needs to take a positive stand with other states, joining them in investigating and holding Exxon accountable in their efforts to deny they knew about damaging climate issues. Please do this sooner than later.

    Normally, I wouldn’t care about this enough to recommend action. Clearly, that was the wrong decision, since climate deniers are now putting everyone’s futures at risk. This is the new generation of ignorance, and someone needs to stand up against it.
