Demand Google quit ALEC and disclose its ties to climate deniers!

ALEC -- the right-wing legislation factory -- has set its sights squarely on the environment. Flush with an influx of cash from new member Google, they've pledged to spend 2014 fighting for more dirty coal, attacking the EPA's climate efforts, and targeting clean energy standards.

Google needs to feel more pressure about their membership in ALEC -- and we have a big opening if we act now.

A group of shareholders has introduced a resolution demanding full disclosure of Google's financial ties to right-wing lobbyists. Google will formally respond to the resolution this spring, so we need to be sure it has as many supporters as possible. This petition, which we've set up with our allies at Forecast the Facts, is an open letter to the rest of Google's investors, asking them to join the cause.

Sign the joint petition to Google's shareholders: Demand that Google quit ALEC and disclose all lobbyist ties immediately!

Google needs to disclose its lobbyist ties and quit ALEC immediately

Dear [Shareholder],

Google needs to come clean about its financial support for climate deniers and other lobbyists!

As a shareholder in Google, you've proclaimed your support for a company whose motto is "do no evil". Please help make that motto a reality by supporting the shareholder resolution filed by Walden Asset Management, requesting that Google report annually on "payments to any tax-exempt organization that writes and endorsees model legislation." In addition to supporting this important resolution, please contact Google and let them know you want the company to quit funding ALEC, the climate denial legislation factory, immediately.

Thank you,
[Your Name]
