Press Release

350.Org on Latest #Exxonknew Tapes Revealing Secret War against Climate Action

WASHINGTON -

Today, explosive footage from Channel 4 News and Unearthed revealed a senior ExxonMobil lobbyist on tape describing how the corporation blocks climate action in Congress, affirming the fossil fuel company is using its power and influence to block U.S. climate legislation. 

On this latest news, Lindsay Meiman, 350.org U.S. Communications Manager, said: 

“In the midst of a deadly heatwave, the Exxon Tapes show how Exxon’s climate lies have spanned from outright denial to puppeteering our government and economy. Exxon knew and lied about the climate crisis for decades, and our communities are bearing the costs.

“As the window for action quickly closes, this footage proves what we’ve known all along -- Exxon continues to deliberately block necessary climate action to skirt accountability. We demand Congress immediately investigate Exxon and fossil fuel companies’ climate crimes, and make polluters pay for their destruction.”
