Sign the Petition to

Dr. Margaret Leinen, President of the AGU, and the full AGU Board of Directors.

I stand in solidarity with over 300 Earth scientists in urging the American Geophysical Union to stop accepting sponsorship from Exxon Mobil. Exxon has funded, promoted, and disseminated climate science disinformation for decades. AGU's own policy explicitly bars sponsorship from companies that disseminate science disinformation, and there is no reason that Exxon should be exempted from this policy.

The impacts of Exxon's deceptive tactics have been devastating. For decades the company has been pouring millions of dollars into sowing climate change denial. We call on you to protect the integrity of climate science by rejecting sponsorship, or any future funding, from Exxon.

How this will help

Exxon has been deceiving the public on the science of climate change for decades — deception that continues to this day. Please stand with scientists and sign our petition to tell the AGU to drop Exxon sponsorship.
