Tell Speaker Ryan: Stop the Meddling in #ExxonKnew Investigations

Sign the Petition

This petition will be delivered to U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan.  

The House Science Committee’s attempt to silence critics of Exxon Mobil is the clearest example yet of the committee's blatant corruption. If you are seriously committed to fixing the "broken" U.S. House of Representatives, stop this sham defense of Exxon and tell Rep. Lamar Smith and the House Science Committee to retract their subpoenas.

    After decades of lying about climate change, Exxon is under investigation in several states for possible fraud. But Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX) — a notorious climate change denier — is using his job as chairman of the Science Committee to harass the attorneys general investigating Exxon.

    Lamar Smith and the House Science Committee have subpoenaed the state attorneys general in Massachusetts and New York, along with eight different environmental organizations. This unprecedented meddling into state investigations is shocking, even for a corporate shill like Lamar Smith, who has received over $675,000 from the oil & gas industry since 1998.

    House Speaker 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.

    Tell Paul Ryan: It’s time for the House to stop shilling for ExxonMobil. The House Science Committee must retract their subpoenas.
