Big polluters are knowingly destroying the earth's climate while profiting immensely, and being subsidized, rather than penalized, for it by state and federal governments.
Click here to write to your members of Congress and your state’s Attorney General now: Urge them to hold Big Polluters liable for the climate crisis.
For decades, Big Polluters like Exxon, Shell, and others have known that their products are fueling disastrous climate collapse. These corporations profit so dramatically from this abuse that they have hundreds of billions of dollars they've been able to spend on propaganda.
The propaganda of the big polluters has manufactured doubt and denial.
Take action to counter their power right now.
People around the world are struggling to protect their homes from rising seas, their loved ones from extreme weather events, and their lives and livelihoods from floods, droughts, pipelines, brutal fossil fuel extraction, deforestation, destruction of natural ecosystems, land grabs, and other violations of their rights.
Communities around the world are struggling to fund urgent recovery needs from climate disasters, and to cover ongoing costs for chronic health problems from pollution.
We know how to respond to this global crisis. Real, just solutions to address climate change are within reach, and have been led by communities on the front lines of the climate crisis for decades. But frontline communities urgently need funding to implement these solutions, as part of a just and equitable transition.
Funding mitigation of the damage of climate collapse is best funded by the big polluters, because this policy will -- even more importantly -- serve to discourage more pollution.
New York Attorney General Letitia James is suing Exxon for deceiving its shareholders; the trial is happening right now. Other regions are filing lawsuits as well, including on behalf of the people. These cases will build essential legal precedents.
