The Attorney General was in order she requested for a second investigation because it seemed that ExxonMobil is hiding something. This move is a clear indication that the company indeed knew the effects of CO2 long time ago but still went a head with its multimillion dollar campaign to attack climate science there by casting doubt and deception on climate change.
No, ExxonMobil sound like they are hiding just as much, if not more, than the Massachusetts Attorney General. As a big corporation they have the manpower and money to make however many complaints they want, and fight in the courts until they get their own way. Basically they need to stop fighting and just get on with saving the environment and monitoring the climate.
Big oil companies, like Exxon, do not have the best track record when it comes to protecting the environment from the harmful chemicals they put into the air. They need to be checked and I feel this lawsuit was to protect an image that did not need protecting in the first place.
Acting like a wounded and cornered beast, ExxonMobil has launched what appears to be a blatantly retaliatory and frivolous lawsuit against Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey. Beneath a very thin veil, this legal maneuver by Exxon is seemingly an effort to intimidate any and all who seek to hold the oil giant accountable for its multi-million dollar campaign to attack climate science and sow doubt through decades of deception.
