EXXON'S DENIAL IS UNFORGIVABLE...

 

Exxon and other oil companies pay the same PR firms and right wing front groups that helped tobacco companies lie about the risks of smoking.

Tobacco and oil lobbyist are one and the same.

Pulitzer Prize-nominated reporting shows that Exxon has known that burning oil and gas causes catastrophic climate change as far back as 1977.

...man has a time window of five to ten years before the need for hard decisions regarding changes in energy strategies might become critical.

 

But by the 1990s, Exxon had instead started funding climate disinformation at a massive scale.

 

 

All designed to spread confusion about the urgency of climate change and keep their profits high.

Three states (and counting) are investigating Exxon for misleading shareholders about the risks of climate change.

So now Exxon acknowledges human-caused climate change and even claims to support a carbon tax."

In the Los Angeles Times, Exxon wrote that they support a carbon tax.

But in reality, Exxon is quietly blocking progress. The company remains a major funder of denial-promoting groups, including the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).

ALEC opposes a carbon tax and misinforms state lawmakers about climate change. But without Exxon's funding, ALEC would lose influence fast.

David, you signed the petition demanding Exxon come clean and leave ALEC. Now it's time to ask everyone you know to join in.

Producing carbon emissions is dangerous. But Exxon is producing something else just as dangerous: climate change denial.

Denial is slowing our transition to cleaner energy and harming vulnerable communities.

Exxon continues to spend $27 million a year to spread denial and block climate action.

All eyes will be on Exxon at its annual shareholder meeting in Dallas on May 25, so we need to act fast.

Bring others into the #ExxonKnew campaign to ensure Exxon stops funding climate denial once and for all!

Truthfully yours,

Elizabeth, and Emily
