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.
