In more news from the Supreme Court, justices rejected a bid Monday by ExxonMobil to block Massachusetts from investigating whether the oil giant misled the public and stakeholders about climate change. In response to the news, Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey tweeted: “Today’s #SCOTUS victory clears the way for our office to investigate Exxon’s conduct toward consumers and investors. The public deserves answers from this company about what it knew about the impacts of burning fossil fuels, and when.” In October, New York launched a lawsuit against Exxon for deceiving shareholders over the financial risks of climate change.
