Make polluters pay: Sue Big Oil to hold them accountable for their climate crimes NOW!
Big Oil has known for decades that their pollution was harming human health and leading to catastrophic climate change. But instead of warning the public, they embarked on a massive disinformation campaign, spending billions of dollars to spread climate denial and block any attempts to address the crisis.
Now, our communities are paying the price.
Why is this important?
Our neighbors are losing their homes, and sometimes even their lives, to fires, floods, and extreme heat. Cities and states are spending billions to respond to non stop climate disasters and extreme weather events. But instead of paying their fair share for the damage they’ve caused, fossil fuel companies continue to rake in massive profits at our expense.
It’s time to make polluters pay for the damage they’ve done. There’s now a growing global effort to use our legal process to hold Big Oil accountable for their climate disinformation and the damage they’re doing. Cases in South Africa, the Netherlands, the United States, and beyond are already making their way through the courts.
Together, we can build a global movement that supports these lawsuits and other mechanisms to hold Big Oil accountable. These lawsuits aren’t a solution to the climate crisis – we need governments to do their part – but they’re a powerful tool for us to finally hold this industry accountable. Join us and sign the petition.
