There's compelling evidencethe Exxon Mobil Corporation defraudedits investors, and at minimum, the company will be exposedto deep public scrutiny as the trial develops. "We’re seeing the company for the first time confrontedin open courts with the evidence of its climate deception,"
To combat the terrible publicityassociated with fraud allegations, the company strategically purchased ads from Google for people searching for the climate trial. Exxon has specifically targeted keyword searches like "Exxon climate trial," and "Exxon climate change."
