Why is ExxonMobil Still Funding Climate Science Denier Groups?:

“A decade after pledging to end its support for climate science deniers, ExxonMobil gave $1.5 million last year to 11 think tanks and lobby groups that reject established climate science and openly oppose the oil and gas giant’s professed climate policy preferences, according to the company’s annual charitable giving report released this week.“

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. This video is a look back at our campaign demanding that Exxon drop ALEC: https://www.facebook.com/ClimateTruth/videos/1044209322293803

Global impact of oilsands growth could counteract Canada’s promised carbon cuts:

“Climate change is about fossil fuels. Most everyone gets that we need to burn way less coal, gas, and oil. But it can be more difficult to reckon with what this also means: we need to dig up way less of these fuels.

...Adding more than a billion barrels to the global oil market has climate consequences that should be obvious.

DNC Quietly Adopts Ban On Fossil Fuel Company Donations:

BREAKING: The DNC has quietly voted to ban donations from fossil fuel corporate PACs. We applaud this first step, and hope they’ll follow the lead of the 600+ candidates who have rejected all fossil fuel money, not just from PACs. 

Join the movement by demanding that the candidates running to represent you take the #NoFossilFuelMoney pledge: nofossilfuelmoney.org/tool
