Mass Attorney General Maura Healey Says Exxon Knew
Dear Friends, Today Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey announced that she is joining with the Attorneys General of New York and California in formally investigating ExxonMobil for their role in sowing doubt about climate science and preventing climate action after their own scientists affirmed the reality of climate change some 35 years ago.
This is yet another refreshing demonstration of climate leadership by Attorney General Healey, who has emerged as the people's champion in the struggle to prevent new fossil fuel pipelines in Massachusetts. Today, Attorney General Healey has taken another big step forward to unambiguously plant herself on the right side of this issue and on the right side of history, and she deserves our thanks and appreciation.
People power makes a difference. When politicians know they can count on our support when they take a stand on climate, it makes it easier for champions like Maura Healey to lead. Please join me in thanking AG Healey by sharing this meme on Facebook and/or calling her office at (617) 727-2200.
Onward and upward,
Craig Altemose Executive Director, Better Future Project Senior Advisor, 350 Mass for a Better Future
