Exxon Mobil leaves conservative advocacy group ALEC:
Exxon just announced that it’s finally cutting ties with ALEC and joins the long list of companies that have severed ties. After enough pressure, even Exxon had to admit that ALEC’s climate denial is too much…and given #ExxonKnew, that’s saying a lot.
Take action to keep up the fight against climate denial.
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. This video is a look back at our campaign demanding that Exxon drop ALEC: https://www.facebook.com/ClimateTruth/videos/1044209322293803

Fires are white-hot signs of climate change in our backyard:
