Attorney General TJ Donovan announces lawsuit against 🦖👿🦕 oil giants

SNIPPETS:

Vermont Attorney General TJ Donovan announced Tuesday the state has filed a lawsuit against the four largest suppliers of 🦖 fossil fuels in Vermont, arguing the companies have misled consumers about their products’ contribution to climate change.

The state is seeking to force the companies to include stickers or labels at gas pumps warning Vermonters about the products’ impact on the environment, in addition to fines and other measures.

“Here’s the thing: We’re not saying, ‘Don’t sell your product in Vermont.’ We’re not saying, ‘Vermonters, don’t drive,’” Donovan said at a press conference outside Chittenden County Superior Court in Burlington. “We are simply saying that Vermonters have the right to know.”

The consumer protection suit claims that 🦖 Exxon, 🦕 Shell, 🦖 Sunoco and 🦕 CITGO have made “past and ongoing violations” of Vermont’s Consumer Protection Act via “numerous deceptive acts and unfair practices in connection with their marketing, distribution, and sale of gasoline and other fossil fuel products” in the state.

The state alleges that these companies have done so in three ways:

👉 through historical knowledge that their products contribute to climate change,

👉 by releasing false advertisements that downplay their products’ impact on the environment and

👉 by “greenwashing” campaigns that suggest they are helping address the problem.
   

The lawsuit calls for “disclosure at the point of sale,” which could take the form of the stickers or labels at gas pumps, said Peter McDougall, chief of the Environmental Protection Division in the Vermont Attorney General’s Office.

“While the products are legal, they are not innocuous,” Assistant Attorney General Justin Kolber said. “This is no different than any other countless consumer products that carry disclosures with them.” ... ...

The lawsuit alleges that the 🦖 defendants have known their fossil fuels have contributed to climate change since the 1960s. The complaint cites internal reports conducted on behalf of the defendants, such as one from Shell in 1988 that said fossil fuels are “the primary driver of climate change,” and by the time global warming is detected, “it could be too late to reduce the effects.”

Meanwhile, according to the lawsuit, the companies used false advertising to downplay the impact. At the press conference, Kolber shared a 1988 internal memo from Exxon that said the company should 😈 “emphasize uncertainty around climate science and turn it into a debate,” which was followed by such advertisements in the 1990s.
