Tell ExxonMobil and Chevron to stop spreading climate disinformation and start taking climate action!
Later this month ExxonMobil and Chevron, two companies responsible for decades of heat-trapping emissions and deception on climate science, will be in the spotlight as they hold their annual shareholder meetings. These meetings are a critical opportunity to turn up the heat and demand that these fossil fuel giants stop blocking climate action.
Since the 1980s, these companies have hid behind trade associations and front groups, such as the American Legislative Exchange Council, to oppose common-sense emissions reductions and confuse the public with manufactured dissent and debate on climate change. Many of ExxonMobil’s and Chevron’s own shareholders are calling on them to stop spreading climate deception and start taking responsibility for the damage they’ve done to our planet. We need your help to drive this message home.
Keep the pressure on: Tell ExxonMobil and Chevron to stop spreading climate disinformation and start taking climate action!
We cannot afford to let the fossil fuel industry continue “business as usual.” The safety of our communities depends on these companies facing reality and the global call to climate action. As they prepare for their shareholder meetings this month, they need to hear from you to be held accountable to supporting global climate action.
