Under pressure, Exxon drops ALEC

Under pressure, Exxon drops ALEC:

Exxon just announced that the company is finally cutting ties with the extremist right-wing American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) and joins the long list of companies that have severed ties. After enough public pressure, even Exxon had to admit that ALEC’s extreme climate denial is too much…and given #ExxonKnew, that’s saying a lot.

Exxon has been funding climate disinformation for decades and was a top funder of ALEC. With Exxon’s departure from ALEC, we’re one step closer to ALEC going down for good.
