Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has joined the ranks of politicians and environmentalists calling for a federal investigation of ExxonMobil.
At a town hall event in New Hampshire on Thursday, local community organizer Jordan Cichon asked Clinton whether she would call on the Department of Justice to investigate the fossil fuel giant of engaging in a cover-up to mislead the public about the risks of human-caused climate change.
“Yes, yes, they should,” Clinton responded. “There’s a lot of evidence that they misled.”
Holy shit! You just know that caused certain heads to explode over at Exxon.
This is all in response to those e-mails that were discovered showing that scientists at Exxon knew that they were helping to destroy the environment and then sent out misinformation to refute talk of climate change.
In all fairness it should be noted that Hillary is a little late to this, as Bernie Sanders has already requested an investigation.
However I am not in the mood to nitpick. The facts are that the two top contenders for the Democratic nomination are calling for an investigation, and THAT is a very good thing.
