The rest of the world has education and can do math. Being stupidly gullible is not attractive in civilized countries.

@Mike83 Juliana vs U.S. is the first legal action on climate change I know, I think most of the legal actions against corps. relating to climate change originated in the U.S.

Indeed many of these lawsuits in the US go nowhere whereas the EU and perhaps the Hague can move forward.
States are also bringing legal action in the US.
These leeches on the American taxpayer should be exposed.

As well they should since Exxon was well aware of the effects of burning fossil fuels and how their use would impact the climate almost 40 years ago!:

To KNOWINGLY engage in a practice that is detrimental to your own life and the lives of countless others is the very essence of CRIMINAL RECKLESSNESS.

"the very essence of CRIMINAL RECKLESSNESS"
Are you referring to Hillary?

Mike83 | March 22, 2019

Funny how confused some people are as if they discovered something no one else has. Scapegoating must be the GOP fossil fuel addicts pastime.

@WHF - just curious how many more years are some people going to hang on to “but her emails!!!!” When she isn’t even in office.

Exxon a no show and may be banned. If would be good for the US to ban these lobbyists who control the government now.

Well, why even bother allowing them (Exxon) to attend when you KNOW they are only going to LIE (to your face) just to protect their interests in spite of the dire consequences that they were aware of/how their selfish actions are going to impact your and everyone else's lives?
