Exxon Mobil, Shell, Chevron, and BP made $71 billion in combined profits last year. That’s more than the annual budget of 44 different states.
When you really think about it, it’s just bonkers that these companies — especially considering that they are *still* racing us toward climate catastrophe — make more in profits in one year than it takes to run an entire state like Georgia or Colorado or Pennsylvania.

Give consumers a break and take meaningful action to avert climate disaster. Pass legislation to tax Big Oil’s obscene profits with no further delay.
