Hey Google! Don't Fund Evil!
Google's motto is "Don't Be Evil," but on July 11, Google hosted a $250-$2500 per plate fundraiser for one of the worst climate deniers in the world: Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK). Google has been a corporate leader in fighting climate pollution. Its support for liars like Inhofe is a glaring mistake.
Sen. Inhofe has claimed: "CO2 does not cause catastrophic disasters ... actually, it would be beneficial to our environment and the economy."
Google chairman Eric Schmidt has said: "You can lie about the effects of climate change, but eventually you'll be seen as a liar."
UPDATE 7/11: Google went ahead with their fundraiser and refused our petitions in D.C.
UPDATE 7/23: We've reached 50,000 signers (20K here and 30K at CREDO). With 350.org activists, we held a protest at Google headquarters in Mountain View. We attempted to deliver your signatures, but the Google receptionist refused our petitions again.
UPDATE 8/1: With our partners at SumOfUs, we've reached 150K signers! We're protesting and handing out flyers about the campaign at Google's launch party for their Moto X phone in NYC.
