Hold ExxonMobil Accountable for Climate Deception
ExxonMobil and other fossil fuel corporations are facing increased scrutiny for past and current efforts to knowingly spread climate science disinformation—directly and through third-party groups. The Massachusetts and New York attorneys general are investigating whether ExxonMobil deceived its shareholders and the public about climate change—and the company is trying to block these investigations.
ExxonMobil is clearly feeling the heat—and lashing out against the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) and others who are holding them accountable for their decades of deception. Most recently, the company petitioned the court to throw out the New York Attorney General's subpoena seeking information relevant to his investigation into whether ExxonMobil broke any laws by misleading shareholders and the public about climate change. In its filing, ExxonMobil complained that the attorney general consulted with experts, including the Union of Concerned Scientists. It's true! UCS provided our publicly available research on climate science and the evidence of deception in our reports such as Smoke, Mirrors, and Hot Air and The Climate Deception Dossiers.
Sorry, ExxonMobil, but this is what we do. UCS is committed to ensuring that policies and actions by public officials—from the president and Congress to state attorneys general and beyond—are grounded in the best available science.
Tell ExxonMobil to come clean—it's time to stop spreading climate disinformation and face reality.
