Your Call: Exxon's history of climate denial

Dec 8, 2015

On the December 9th edition of  Your Call, we’ll discuss Exxon's role in funding science that denies the impacts of climate change. An email from an in-house climate scientist reveals Exxon may have known about the dangers of climate change as early as 1981.

Is it time for Congress to investigate Exxon about its campaign to bury the truth about climate change?  Who has the power to make it happen – and what could result? It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
