Google: Don't fund evil.

Activists went to Google's DC Headquarters during a fundraiser for James Inhofe to ask what regular Google employees thought about supporting the anti-climate science Senator.

Google has made lots of promises along their rise to global dominance of the internet. One of them is their motto "don't be evil." Another is to do their part to head off climate change. To that end, Google has invested in data centers powered by renewable energy and publicly promoted soluttions to global warming.  Google's Executive Chairman has made strong statements against climate change science deniers, saying “You can hold back knowledge. You cannot prevent it from spreading. You can lie about the effects of climate change, but eventually you'll be seen as a liar.”

Thats why people were so upset to see Google throwing a fundraiser at their DC headquarters for the anti- climate science James Inhofe. Inhofe is one of the most outspoken and bombastic deniers of climate change, bar none. He tried to criminally investigate 17 climate scientists whose emails were hacked and leaked. He "wrote" a "book" called The Greatest Hoax, about climate change. He compares the EPA to the Gestapo. He also receives a huge percentage of his campaign money from the fossil fuel sector. The rest comes from arms manufacturers.

This message from Inhofe is a particular gem.

This is why we can't let corporations like Google and the crushing wealth that they bring with them to continue to support politicians like Inhofe. Sign this petition and help stop Inhofe's climate change lies.
