At this moment, America is threatened by the greatest danger we may ever face. This danger lurks within our borders—a powerful network of organizations, which, while once vital to our country, now serves to weaken and ultimately ruin America.
This network is directed by dangerous radicals, on a path to fundamentally upset the balance of our world. They have infiltrated our highest levels of government and business. Their plan, if carried through to fruition, will result in the deaths of millions of Americans, and the suffering of millions more. I am talking about the fossil fuel industry.
Though not always the case, today’s fossil fuel industry is fundamentally un-American and anti-America. In violation of the most basic American values, they have manipulated our people, subverted our democracy, undermined our economic and moral superiority, and are making us a global laughingstock. Moreover, they are killing our country and our planet, putting us on track for 4-6 degrees of global warming—something straight out of an apocalyptic disaster film.
The fossil fuel industry spends staggering sums of money to deliberately mislead the American public and buy our democracy. In recent years, they have stepped up their attacks on climate science and action to new levels.
