Hi all,
Tomorrow morning the House Oversight Committee will be hosting a hearing into climate disinformation with a group we’re dubbing the #SlipperySix: Exxon, Chevron, BP, Shell, the American Petroleum Institute, and the US Chamber of Commerce.
This is exactly the sort of hearing that helped bring down Big Tobacco. By working together, we can help turn tomorrow’s hearing into an event that helps bring down Big Oil.
The hearing starts at 9am ET and will run for hours after that. You can find the livestream and some more information here.
This social media toolkit has some sample content in it, as well as links to other great toolkits that groups have pulled together. (The toolkit is still a work in progress, so if you have stuff to add in, go for it!)
We’re also setting up a Twitter Group for people who want to coordinate posting LIVE during the hearing. If you want in on that, please email duncan@fossilfree.media or send him a DM to @duncanwrites.
p.s. We’ve also talked on a number of calls about how we can link this hearing to other important work like ending fossil fuel subsidies, making polluters pay, and pressuring the Biden Administration to stand up to Big Oil. If you’re putting together a press statement or other work along those lines, please share it with the crew!
