History Unfolding - Big Oil Sued by California
This is on top of the famous case they had won previously with Steve Donzinger. Everywhere, billionaires are starting to feel the heat of people. And yesterday, the former president, who called climate change a hoax, was found guilty of fraud.
Gavin Newsom is the latest spokesperson, joining the likes of Antonio Gutierrez and Steven Donziger, albeit in a different capacity, in calling for a legal takedown of the biggest industry on the planet.
Gavin Said in his speech at the climate ambition summit, “This climate crisis, is a fossil fuel crisis. This climate crisis, persists. It's not complicated. It's not complicated. It's the burning of oil. It's the burning of gas. It's the burning of coal. And we need to call that out for decades and decades, the oil industry has been playing each and every one of us in this room for fools. They've been buying off politicians. They've been denying and delaying science and fundamental information that they were privy to that they didn't share or they manipulated. Their deceit and denial going back decades has created the conditions that persist here today.”

“What are our responsibilities at this time? Because of the fossil fuel industry, we are facing horrors of a magnitude never before experienced in our existence. Our government continues to lead us to the edge of no return. We must stand up and defend ourselves. No one else is going to do it. It must be us, if we want to live.
Our methods must be disruptive, and they must be nonviolent. Our actions are evidence-based, credible, and we have a plan. The only thing missing at this point in time is YOU!”
