Big oil and gas companies learned decades ago that burning fossil fuels would lead to "catastrophic" climate change. Instead of doing the right thing, they masterminded a decades-long, multimillion dollar climate denial, disinformation, and deception campaign to delay climate action and protect their profits. Now, communities are paying billions to adapt to and recover from the growing climate damages the fossil fuel industry knowingly caused.
The Center for Climate Integrity launched in 2017 amid the growing call for climate accountability across the U.S. and around the globe. Our team has decades of experience in climate science, law, advocacy, communications, social science, government, and investigations.
