Tell Paul Ryan: Stop Lamar Smith's efforts to intimidate Exxon's critics

Exxon is scared and desperate. The oil giant is currently under investigation by three US State Attorneys General for possible fraud based on what Exxon knew about climate change and what they did with that information. And a host of environmental organizations have been digging into Exxon on their own.

To fight back, Lamar Smith (R-TX-21) and the House Science Committee have subpoenaed the State AGs in Massachusetts and New York, along with eight different green organizations. This unprecedented meddling into state investigations is shocking, even for a climate shill like Lamar Smith, who has received $432,150 from the oil & gas industry since 2008.

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan has said “Let’s be frank: The House is broken. We’re not solving problems. We’re adding to them.” It’s time for him to put turn his words into action and fix this problem that Lamar Smith has created. 

Paul Ryan: If you want the House to solve problems, here’s one place to start. It’s time for the House to stop shilling for ExxonMobil. Tell the House Science Committee to retract their subpoenas.

ADD YOUR NAME TO THIS PETITION

Paul Ryan, tell Rep. Lamar Smith and the House Science Committee to retract their subpoenas of state attorneys general investigating the fossil-fuel industry and organizations critical of ExxonMobil.

    While you are at it Mr. Ryan, do your job and work to appoint the ninth Supreme Court Justice.

    Mr Ryan, by letting Smith and his science-denying cronies carry on like this you’re likely to hand the House over to the Democrats. Americans are tiring of the pretense that climate change isn’t real, and they want some action.

    Exxon needs to be held accountable for the destruction they are wreaking, knowingly, on our world climate and environment. Humans still need to be able to live here!
