The Decades of Deception Must Stop
Leaked documents show that many of largest oil, gas, and coal corporations are behind efforts to distort the science of climate change and block action to reduce heat-trapping emissions. In addition, recent research shows that more than 13 percent of all industrial carbon pollution has been produced by just six fossil fuel corporations. Read the full Climate Dossiers here.
It's time to hold the corporations behind the deception accountable for their actions and for the harm of their products. Join the call to stop climate deception by telling one or more of these companies that the decades of deception must stop. Click on the logos below to take action:
New evidence that strongly suggests ExxonMobil deceived the public and investors about climate change has now sparked investigations by the attorneys general of California, Massachusetts, and New York, and an initial fact-finding inquiry by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. ExxonMobil now claims that, "We do not fund or support those who deny the reality of climate change." But actions speak louder than words. Tell ExxonMobil to stop funding climate contrarian front groups.
Chevron says that it is concerned about "climate change risks and recognizes that the use of fossil fuels to meet the world's energy needs is a contributor to rising greenhouse gas emissions in the earth's atmosphere." But actions speak louder than words. Tell Chevron to stop funding front groups that distort or deny climate change.
As a major oil company that recognizes the climate risks of burning fossil fuels and remains a member of the US Chamber of Commerce's board of directors, ConocoPhillips has a particular responsibility to speak out against the US Chamber's harmful opposition to climate science. Tell ConocoPhillips to speak out against climate deception.
Shell has recently taken positive steps in standing up for climate science. But it's not enough. They still support groups that spread climate disinformation and block action like the American Petroleum Institute, the leading oil industry association. Urge Shell to stop funding oil industry front groups that spread climate disinformation.
BP has taken some positive steps recently, such as ending their funding of a leading group spreading climate disinformation, and supporting a shareholder resolution to be more transparent about climate risks. But, it’s not enough. Tell BP it’s also time to publicly distance itself from the deceptive behavior of the American Petroleum Institute. Tell BP to take more steps to stop supporting climate disinformation.
Peabody Energy, the nation’s largest producer of coal, continues to deny and attack climate science, including in its aggressive opposition to the Environmental Protection Agency’s first-ever limits on carbon pollution from power plants. Tell Peabody Energy’s new CEO that it’s time to accept what scientists have known for decades and stop standing in the way of action on climate change. Tell Peabody Energy to accept climate science.
