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!
