Sign Now: Prosecute Exxon For Deliberate Climate Denial

Prosecute ExxonNewly revealed documents show that Exxon’s own scientists were aware of and studying the dangerous impacts of greenhouse gases in the 1970s and 1980s -- until Exxon’s leadership decided to shut down the research and promote climate denial instead, in order to protect the company’s unfathomably large profits.

The United States Department of Justice has the power to prosecute Exxon’s deliberate deception under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act - just as the DOJ did to the tobacco industry for knowingly lying about the dangers of cigarette smoking.

Tell U.S. Attorney General and state attorney generals:

Investigate and prosecute Exxon and its fellow fossil-fuel companies for deliberate and malicious climate deception.

    DOJ needs to hold Exxon accountable for deliberately covering up information about how their business was driving us to a climate emergency. This affects many more people than the tobacco industry, which the DOJ did prosecute.

    So these corporations and Republicans deny climate change because it is easier and less expensive than acting now. Thus, passing the buck onto future generations while the rich line their pockets.

    It’s not denial, it is crimes against humanity and crimes against all life.

    DO NOT LET THIS CORPORATE GREED AND DECEPTION (LIES) AT THE EXPENSE OF OUR HUMAN ENVIRONMENT GO UNPUNISHED!

    Climate change is real, there is an enormous amount of science based facts regarding fossil fuels causing climate change. Stop bowing to big oil and corporate interests while over looking the future of our next generation. Your grandchildren will thank you for it.

    What does Exxon mean? It sounds terrible, but I don’t know what it means. I really want to keep the environment safe because I love animals, so I want to help as much as possible! ;)

    Evidence of willful, informed, harm done to the health of people and the natural environment that sustains life – this should be investigated and prosecuted!
