At least two major U.S. environmental organizations have been subpoenaed directly by ExxonMobil, as the fight heats up over what the fossil fuel behemoth knew, and hid, about climate change.
Typical tactic of the Bigs -- try to drain the resources of the Littles by forcing them to pay enormous legal fees, huge costs for copies, etc, through the discovery process.
I hope there is enough groundswell of informed people and sustained outrage at this unprincipled company that these sleazy legal tactics eventually wear thin. Just like Big Tobacco in the 70's it's clear that Exxon knew all along.
My musical piece on Exxon is still appropriate. Feel free to share.
