Climate change is the most urgent issue of our time. The last three years have been the hottest in recorded history. Climate change causes extreme weather that brings more intense and frequent heat waves, severe droughts, heavier rainfall, dangerous flooding, and outbreaks of deadly disease. We must step up to tackle this unprecedented threat.
With climate deniers firmly in control of national policies, it will be up to the states to hold corporate polluters accountable. New York must lead the way on this critical issue and build a movement to stop climate change and win a renewable energy future. New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is investigating the Oil and Gas industry for its decades-long campaign to thwart policies that would curb emissions of greenhouse gases. Support his investigation today.

Oil and Gas corporations must tell the public and their shareholders the truth about their role in accelerating the pace of climate change. NY Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is one of the last checks on the immense power of the Oil and Gas industry.
This is a David vs. Goliath issue, and it will shape the planet for years and decades to come. It is up to all of us to make sure that those with the power to hold the Oil and Gas industry accountable, like NY AG Schneiderman, have the public support required to win.

Big Oil and Gas corporations...

CONCEALED the truth about the catastrophic consequences of fossil fuel use on the climate.
MISLED the public, investors, and regulators.
ATTACKED real science and those who spoke against them.
CORRUPTED the democratic process to prevent climate action.
YOU can hold them accountable!
