In addition to advocating for solutions to global warming, we are doing our part to call out the work being done — often secretively — to block climate regulations and policies that would kickstart the clean energy revolution.
Below are a few of the projects and resources we've created to try and remove roadblocks to progress on stopping global warming.
Our PolluterWatch project is holding polluters, their lobbyists, and the politicians who work with them accountable for poisoning the climate debate and blocking much-needed environmental regulations.
Koch Industries: Secretly Funding Climate Denial
Billionaire oilman David Koch likes to joke that Koch Industries is "the biggest company you've never heard of." But the nearly $50 million that David Koch and his brother Charles have quietly funneled to climate-denial front groups that are working to delay policies and regulations aimed at stopping global warming is no joking matter.
Our report, Koch Industries: Secretly Funding the Climate Denial Machine, exposes the Kochs' web of dirty money and influence.
Charles G. Koch and David H. Koch have a vested interest in delaying climate action: they've made billions from their ownership and control of Koch Industries, an oil corporation that is the second largest privately-held company in America (which also happens to have an especially poor environmental record).
It's high time more people were aware of Charles and David Koch and just what they're up to.
ExxonSecrets is a Greenpeace research project that exposes the campaign Exxon has run for more than a decade to deny the urgency of the scientific consensus on global warming and delay action to fix the problem.
Our ExxonSecrets database compiles Exxon Foundation and corporate funding to a series of institutions that have worked to undermine solutions to global warming and climate change. It details the working relationships of individuals associated with these organizations and their global warming quotes and deeds.
Don't Believe the Dirty Lie
The fossil fuels industry and their lobbyists are always telling us that we can't afford not to use their dirty energy. Fossil fuels are abundant and cheap, they say. Renewables can't do the job, they argue, and switching to them would cripple our economy. But it's all a Dirty Lie.
It's time we started pushing back. The Dirty Lie is constantly repeated by coal and oil industry lobbyists and their friends in Congress. We need your help to call out the Dirty Lie whenever and wherever we find it.
