Feds Refer Exxon Climate Investigation to FBI

“Exxon has already cost us decades of meaningful climate action and policy thanks to its colossal climate denial operation. This development is a step in the right direction to holding it legally accountable,” said Naomi Ages, a climate liability campaigner with Greenpeace. “We expect the FBI and the Department of Justice to give this investigation the attention demanded by the American public.”The DOJ’s referral, reported late Wednesday night by Inside Climate News, comes as a response to growing evidence that ExxonMobil covered up the role of fossil fuels in climate change and interfered in government efforts to take action on global warming, fearing that it would limit the company’s profits. The extent of the campaign was revealed late last year through two separate investigations by Inside Climate News and the Los Angeles Times.
