This Saturday, renowned authors and climate activists Bill McKibben and Naomi Klein are hosting a public trial of ExxonMobil at the COP21 People’s Climate Summit in Montreuil. They’ll interview a series of star witness from around the world about Exxon’s lies and the climate impacts they, and other fossil fuel companies like Total, are responsible for.
A series of new revelations revealed that ExxonMobil scientists knew about climate change decades ago, but chose to bury the information and mislead the public and their shareholders about the dangers of the problem. Instead of warning the world about the climate crisis, Exxon spent millions to protect their profits at the expense of people everywhere.
Now, the pressure on Exxon is growing to pay for their crimes, with the #ExxonKnew campaign growing stronger everyday. In the United States, presidential candidates are calling for a formal investigation, the New York State Attorney General has launched a subpoena, and Secretary of State John Kerry has said Exxon could lose “billions” in a class action lawsuit.
Come hear the case against Exxon and join the movement to challenge the most dangerous company on the planet.
“The rapidly evolving Exxon scandal may represent the next great phase of the climate movement. Many of its victims are represented here in Paris, so it’s the perfect opportunity to collect testimony to the damage that 25 years of Exxon’s deception has wrought,” — Bill McKibben
