Exxon has known for decades that burning fossil fuels causes climate change. Yet instead of acting on their own research, they misled shareholders and funded climate change denial. All the while, Exxon kept drilling and selling the product that they knew was driving the world closer to disaster.
Several states have launched investigations into Exxon's deception, with New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey leading the effort to uncover what Exxon knew. As you can imagine, Exxon is fighting back with all they've got to derail these investigations.
With such powerful foes, it takes resources and strong alliances to fight back! California has the resources to aid in the investigations, but so far Attorney General Xavier Becerra hasn't publicly committed to join. We need to change that.
Tell California Attorney General Becerra: Join the investigation and hold Exxon accountable for its decades-long deception on climate change.
