Hey Google! Stop Funding Climate Deniers!

To be delivered to Larry Page, Google CEO and Co-Founder

Petition Statement

Come clean about any donations Google has made to the Competitive Enterprise Institute and any other climate-change-denying groups and pledge to never fund climate deniers again.
There are currently 392 signatures. NEW goal - We need 400 signatures!

Petition Background

Google's motto is "Don't Be Evil," but it is supporting one of the worst climate-denier organizations in the world: the Koch-funded Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI). The Washington Post just revealed that Google was the biggest single donor to CEI's annual dinner on Thursday, June 20, dropping $50,000 in support of this anti-science group. The dinner was headlined by radical global warming denier Sen. Rand Paul. CEI's other donors include a who's who of polluters: American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity, Altria (Phillip Morris), Koch Companies, and Koch's Americans For Prosperity.

CEI is famed for its ad promoting carbon dioxide emissions: "They call it pollution. We call it life."

"You can lie about the effects of climate change, but eventually you'll be seen as a liar," Google chairman Eric Schmidt has said.

Google has been a corporate leader in fighting climate change pollution, and its support for CEI's liars is a glaring mistake.
