Vermont is Holding Big Oil Accountable for Climate Destruction. Other States Must Follow Suit!

In a groundbreaking move, Vermont is on the verge of making history with the Climate Superfund Act, aimed at holding Big Oil responsible for its environmental devastation. This act would require corporations like ExxonMobil, Shell, and Chevron to pay billions for the climate change cleanup in Vermont, based on their emissions from the past three decades.

Sign the petition to urge all states to adopt similar measures and make Big Oil pay for the harm they've caused!

Despite facing potential legal battles with powerful oil conglomerates, the need for such measures has never been clearer. Last year's catastrophic floods in Vermont showed the dire consequences of climate inaction, costing lives and hundreds of millions in damages.

Vermont's proposed legislation is a pioneering effort to ensure that the companies responsible for significant greenhouse gas emissions bear the cost of extreme weather damage, which has wreaked havoc in the form of floods, destroying homes and endangering lives. This initiative follows the principle that if you make a mess, you clean it up--a fundamental lesson Big Oil has long ignored at our expense.

With Vermont setting a precedent, it's crucial that other states step up. New York, California, Maryland, and Massachusetts are already considering similar actions. It's time for every state to demand accountability and ensure that the fossil fuel industry pays for the destruction it has caused, rather than passing the burden onto taxpayers.

Sign this petition to demand that your state follows Vermont's lead in implementing a Climate Superfund Act!
