I’m disgusted, but not surprised – Jeanne.

Leaked video footage shows two Exxon lobbyists bragging about their influence in Congress and their work to undermine climate measures in Biden’s infrastructure bill.1

We’ve known for decades that Exxon has bought off our politicians and used dark money to seed doubt about the impacts of the climate crisis. This is Exxon being Exxon: knowingly destroying our communities through climate destruction.

But we’re done with the elected officials who continue to have secret meetings with Exxon lobbyists – enough is enough.

Exxon’s deception on the climate crisis is well-documented and any coordination with them is a direct affront to our democracy and the communities around the country who are suffering devastating heat waves, fires, and floods.

We’re calling on every member of Congress to pledge to reject any meetings with Exxon lobbyists and to support an immediate investigation into Exxon’s cover up of climate science and climate crimes. Will you send a message to Rep. Schrier and Sens. Murray and Cantwell asking them to publicly take the #NeverExxon pledge?

“Joe Manchin, I talk to his office every week.” – Senior Exxon lobbyist

Our elected representatives are supposed to work for us and represent our interests – not those of ExxonMobil’s shareholders.

As we’ve seen with this infrastructure bill, these closed-door conversations translate into legislation that’s labeled as “bipartisan” – when in reality, it’s the oil lobby getting their way once again. Now, we’re left with a bill that deeply fails in meeting the scale of the crisis.

We’ve known for decades that this dark underbelly of Washington is one of the biggest impediments to climate action. Now it’s time for accountability.

We’re asking every representative to take this pledge – especially Joe Manchin (D-WV), Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), Jon Tester (D-MT), Maggie Hassan (D-NH), Chris Coons (D-DE), Mark Kelly (D-AZ), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), John Barrasso (R-WY), John Cornyn (R-TX), Steve Daines (R-MT), and Marco Rubio (R-FL) who were specifically mentioned by Exxon as key targets for their lobbying efforts.

Please send a message to your members of Congress now urging them to immediately investigate Exxon and publicly take the #NeverExxon pledge to reject any meeting requests from Exxon lobbyists.

With determination,

Emily Southard
Associate Director of Strategy and Partnerships
