More Attorneys General Back ExxonMobil Climate Change Probe

HeadlineMar 30, 2016

A coalition of attorneys general have announced a historic effort to investigate corporations that may have misled the public about climate change. Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey, flanked by former Vice President Al Gore and multiple other attorneys general, said her office would join efforts by attorneys general in New York and California to investigate ExxonMobil.

Attorney General Maura Healey: “It appears, certainly, that certain companies, certain industries may not have told the whole story, leading many to doubt whether climate change is real and to misunderstand and misapprehend the catastrophic nature of its impacts. Fossil fuel companies that deceived investors and consumers about the dangers of climate change should be, must be held accountable. That’s why I, too, have joined in investigating the practices of ExxonMobil. We can all see today the troubling disconnect between what Exxon knew, what industry folks knew and what the company and industry chose to share with investors and with the American public.”
