• Saves Trees From Total Destruction
    Trees are becoming less and less prevalent every year. We must put a stop to this and encourage people to plant more trees. This has been a problem for many years with no sight of a solution anytime soon. Trees are important for everyday life, yet we continue to destroy more than we produce. There has to be a way to counter this. We rely on trees for air and many other supplies.

  • Investigate Exxon: New Hampshire Attorney General Joseph A. Foster
    Right now, we have a chance to expose Exxon Mobil and push for the truth about what they have known for several decades concerning climate change. If we can shine a light on this case, we'll be one step closer to reining in an industry that still continues to drive the climate crisis. Attorneys General in New York, California, Massachusetts, and the U.S. Virgin Islands have already announced they're investigating, and Attorneys General across the country are thinking considering about following suit being part of the fight. But we need your help in calling on Attorney General Foster to they need to know that we’re watching, and that we demand they act now and join the investigation. These sorts of investigations proved Big Tobacco was knowingly poisoning our children -- and now they can show Big Oil has been knowingly poisoning our air, water, and climate. So please, join in urging on Attorney General Foster to fight on behalf of Granite Staters: Exxon Mobil’s day in court has come -- they need to tell the truth in court, and face the consequences of their lies.

  • Investigate Exxon: Vermont Attorney General William H. Sorrell
    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. Not only did Exxon not come clean about what they found -- they've spent tens of millions of dollars over the past forty years trying to convince us all that climate change isn’t real. When that didn’t work, they said climate change isn’t that bad, and when that failed, they said, “Oh hey, it’s not our fault.” We’re talking about what could be the largest case of fraud in human history. It’s no secret that the fossil fuel industry is a blight on the planet. But right now, we have a chance to do real damage to Exxon, and push their shady, oil company lies out into broad daylight. If we can shine a light on this case of blatant fraud, we'll be one step closer to dismantling the power of an industry that's still recklessly -- and knowingly -- driving the climate crisis. Governor Peter Shumlin and Vermont legislators have already called out Exxon for the bad actor they are, urging divestment of the state pension funds. New York State’s Attorney General had already begun an investigation, and on March 29, he and sixteen other AGs, including Attorney General Bill Sorrell, announced that they're jointly exploring "ongoing and potential investigations into whether fossil fuel companies misled investors and the public on the impact of climate change on their businesses." We applaud this announcement, and we urge Attorney General Sorrell to start an investigation of Exxon. These sorts of investigations are what convinced America about the evil of Big Tobacco -- it’s time for Big Oil to get the same treatment. So please, join the call: Exxon’s day in court has come -- they need to tell the truth in court, and face the consequences of their lies and fraud.

  • Investigate Exxon
    Last fall, we learned that Exxon researchers alerted company management to the grave threats of climate change in the 1970s...and the company's executives have been lying about it ever since. Not only did Exxon not disclose the dangers -- its executives spent tens of millions of dollars trying to convince the world that climate change isn’t real; this hobbled effective political action for decades. In circles where that didn’t work, they said that climate change wasn't that bad, and wasn't an urgent problem. This was the most devastating coverup in human history. We can't have those decades back. But if Exxon is held accountable, we'll be one step closer to dismantling the power of an industry that's still driving us towards disaster, and making them pay for their wrongs. New York State’s Attorney General has already started an investigation, and on March 29, he and sixteen other AGs announced that they're jointly exploring "ongoing and potential investigations into whether fossil fuel companies misled investors and the public on the impact of climate change on their businesses." Here in Washington, Attorney General Ferguson needs to know that he has the support he needs to start an investigation. Investigations like this showed the evils of Big Tobacco -- it’s time for Big Oil to face the same scrutiny. We want Washington state to be in 100%. So please, join the call: we need to hear the truth in a court of law, and Exxon needs to face the consequences of its deception.

  • Investigate Exxon
    During this time—while a whole generation was being deprived of the opportunity to begin taking meaningful steps to avert climate catastrophe--the warming of the earth has steadily increased. Species have begun to die. People have begun to die. Exxon, in the meantime, has taken in profits during some of these years larger than any corporation has ever seen. Has there ever been a greater, more consequential case of fraud in history? It is time that Exxon be called to account. You, Attorney General Mills, have just joined a coalition of state Attorneys General dedicated to combating climate change and bringing to justice those who by intentional deception are shown to have broken the law and violated the public trust. In that connection, you have said: "Our natural resources are the lifeblood of our state’s economy and our quality of life. Global climate change demands immediate action and I am committed to using the authority of my office to address the problem in a meaningful way by defending important EPA regulations against attacks led by the coal industry and exploring litigation options that will hold the worst polluters accountable for their actions.” For these words and for that step, we thank you. Now we call upon you to take a further step. Once before—through litigation against Big Tobacco brought by a coalition of states Attorneys General—corporate deceptions on a till then unthinkable scale were exposed and punished. It is time for Big Oil to be subjected to the same scrutiny. We put our names to this petition asking that you, as Maine’s Attorney General, seize this historic opportunity to investigate Exxon—thereby pushing the lies and the deception out into broad daylight and bringing us a step closer to dismantling the power of an industry that's still recklessly -- and knowingly -- driving the climate crisis. The time for Exxon’s day in court has come. The truth must come out and Exxon be called to account.

  • Support the Heathrow 13 and stop the new runway!
    13 climate protesters are facing prison to silence protest against new runways which would wreck Government policy to protect us from catastrophic climate change. The Paris agreement underlines the need to cut emissions now. Aviation is the fastest growing source of carbon emissions and the only way to reduce emissions from aviation to a safe level is to reduce the number of flights. Despite David Cameron’s ‘no ifs, no buts’ election and manifesto promise to not build a new runway following massive public outrage at the proposals, the Government is now breaking its promise. There is more than enough aviation capacity for people’s annual holidays and the declining number of business flights. Airport growth is driven by a minority of frequent fliers who take the majority of UK flights to second homes and tax havens. Meanwhile, emissions from aviation are destroying people’s lives. People in the Heathrow area, who already have to breathe illegal levels of air pollution and suffer intolerable noise, would now see their homes destroyed. People across the UK have been flooded at Christmas, and every year hundreds of thousands more people die due to climate change - mostly in poor countries in the Global South, the people least responsible for emissions. The Government is expected to make its decision on whether to expand Heathrow or Gatwick – or neither, if we are successful – this year. It’s one or the other: build new runways or protect us from climate chaos. The people in the Global South who are dying due to climate change already have no voice in the debate. We can show them that jailing peaceful protesters will not silence those of us who do.

  • Get polluters out of politics : Bill Heffernan
    Despite more than two decades of talking, our climate is at a crisis point because our leaders have allowed themselves to be captured by the fossil fuel industry. Since the last elections the fossil fuel industry have donated more than $3.7m to the major political parties. In exchange, Governments have forked out more than $7.7bn in taxpayer subsidies to the industry -- more than our total foreign aid budget. That equals a return on investment for the fossil fuel lobby of more than $2000 for every $1 they donated. If our politicians are serious about climate change, then they need to stop taking money from and giving money to the big polluters. That's why we are calling on politicians on all sides of the aisle to stand up and sign the Pollution Free Politics Pledge.
