ExxonMobil is being investigated in New York about hiding their findings relating to evidence of climate change. Evidence surfacing shows that for decades they have known about the correlation between fossil fuels and global warming, but have said nothing or blatantly lied about their discoveries.

The letters have been described as ‘thuggish’ and mention how much money they donate to the school in a threatening way. This article includes a transcript of an interview with Bill Mckibben who was arrested for holding up signs outside a closed Exxon station.
