FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ICYMI: REP. TED LIEU AND SENATOR SHELDON WHITEHOUSE OP-ED:

“IT’S TIME TO DIVEST FROM EXXONMOBIL”

Online at The Hill, Rep. Lieu and Senator Whitehouse urge organizations to divest from fossil fuels, starting with ExxonMobil.

“ExxonMobil may have robbed humanity of a generation’s worth of time to reverse climate change. It is time for the pension funds to accept reality and divest from a company that knowingly drove us toward climate catastrophe while obstructing action with fabricated doubt and denial.” 

“By divesting from ExxonMobil, pension funds send a clear message: Companies that intentionally poison public dialogue, obstruct solutions and fuel climate catastrophewill not receive the public’s investments.”
