About ExxonKnews

The people have been denied the power knowledge gives, which means we’ve effectively been governed by Big Oil on climate change.” –Rep. Jamie Raskin, Oct. 23rd, 2019

The climate crisis wasn’t inevitable.

Like the opioid and tobacco industries, Big Oil knew its products posed a “catastrophic” risk long before we did. But instead of sharing that knowledge or taking action to prevent disaster, oil and gas executives decided to bankroll an enormously consequential campaign to deceive the public and policymakers about climate change and obstruct action to address it.

That’s where ExxonKnews comes in.

We serve as a watchdog over the fossil fuel industry’s continued campaigns to deceive the public, delay climate action, and avoid paying for the harm they knowingly caused. And we’ll bring you the latest on what’s being done to hold these polluters accountable.
