Google had been a corporate leader in fighting for the environment, so why is it funding the very people and institutions that are fighting tooth and nail to block progress on climate change?

Earlier this month, Google hosted a $2,500 a person fundraising dinner for one of the world’s most powerful climate change deniers, U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe. And just two weeks before that, Google poured $50,000 into the coffers of the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI), a right-wing think tank that is also funded by the likes of ExxonMobil and Philip Morris (Altria) to put out faux "studies" that are used by policy-makers to deny climate change exists.

Google had been a corporate leader in fighting for the environment, so why is it funding the very people and institutions that are fighting tooth and nail to block progress on climate change?

A global outcry is starting to build now that people see Google moving away from its unofficial corporate motto -- "Don't be evil". Let's add our voices to that chorus to make sure Google knows that tens of thousands of its own users across the globe want it to cut off all support to climate change deniers who are destroying the planet we all have to live on.

Sign our petition telling Google to cease all funding to climate change deniers.

Thank you for the petition link. I hadn't realized how right wing this company has become.

Thank you for calling on Google to take action. I agree Patrick. It has taken a lot of stances that are going in a seriously wrong direction. It seems when so many of these businesses get to a certain point of being Big that they forget those that got them there.....the people.

Thank you Beverly. Being in "BED" with everyone seems to be the rule rather than the exception! I am personally disgusted knowing how many SELL OUT. Dandelion~ Your post is so true. The best intentions seem to always be "forgotten" when one CHOOSES the path named Gr$$D. It has become epidemic in our culture. I AM ASHAMED OF MY SPECIES.

Signed and noted. Thanks for sharing, Beverly. Google should know better than to support people who deny that climate change is happening.
