Tell the Department of Justice:

Recent reports have shown that Exxon may have known about the threat of climate change decades ago. Yet over the course of nearly forty years, the company has contributed millions of dollars to think-tanks and politicians that have done their best to spread doubt and misinformation -- first on the existence of climate change, then the extent of the problem, and now its cause. If Exxon intentionally misled the public about climate change and fossil fuels, then they should be held accountable. We're calling for an immediate investigation.

Big news broke last year: Exxon knew about climate change in the 1970s. They researched it. And surprise, surprise, they’ve been lying about it ever since.

That's right: decades before climate change became a hotly debated political issue, the biggest oil company in the world was doing cutting-edge research into just what was causing it and how dangerous it might be. Exxon's own scientists warned the company that burning fossil fuels was "potentially catastrophic" and might pose an existential threat to humanity.

But Exxon chose to protect their profits over the planet, and proceeded to cover up their findings for nearly forty years. They hid the work of their own scientists, while financing an elaborate network of climate-denial think tanks, organizations, and politicians.

Decades later, we're in the midst of a rapidly-unraveling crisis -- one that we could have been well on our way toward solving, had we acted much sooner.

We're not surprised that Exxon lied about climate change. We're not even surprised they lied for so long. What's dismaying is that they just might get away with it.

If we know the truth about how fossil fuel companies like Exxon really operate, then we can fight them better. It's not too late to do that.
