A U.S. congressional committee has started questioning top oil industry CEOs about their role in decades of climate change misinformation.

On Thursday, the House Monitoring and Reform Committee began its session. The committee aims to determine whether the supergiant oil companies have withheld information about global warming and whether they have actively attempted to spread disinformation about it.

Presidential Representative Carolyn Maloney said: “For the first time, top fossil fuel leaders are together testifying before Congress, under oath, on the role of industry in climate change – and their efforts to achieve it. hide.

“We have to get to the bottom of the oil industry’s disinformation campaign with these subpoenas.”

ExxonMobil CEO Darren Woods, Shell Oil CEO Gretchen Watkins, BP America CEO David Lawler and Chevron CEO Mike Wirth all appeared virtually. Mike Sommers, President of the American Petroleum Institute (API), and Suzanne Clark, President and CEO of the United States Chamber of Commerce, also addressed the committee.

Climatologists first suggested a link between rising global temperatures and pollution from fossil fuel use in the late 1970s. Maloney accused ExxonMobil of lying about climate change since then, saying to Wood that his company’s scientists had warned executives of the dangers of the day.

Woods said that “Exxon does not and has never disseminated disinformation about climate change,” and that his company’s statements were consistent with the science of the time. This exchange followed Woods’ misrepresentation of the IPCC report on climate change, in which he said the report concluded that carbon emissions “”can cause climate change ”. On page 6 of the 3,949-page report, the IPCC states that “it is unequivocal that human influence has warmed the atmosphere, the ocean and the land.”

Accusations of disinformation by the oil supergiants

Ahead of the hearing, Maloney released an analysis of data regarding lobbying by fossil fuel companies. A statement from the committee said that this “shows that while the industry is publicly committed to supporting climate reforms, it is devoting only a small fraction of its lobbying resources to supporting climate action behind closed doors.”

In this context, representatives stressed that despite Wirth’s repeated references to the Paris Agreement, his company had never lobbied for it. In contrast, out of 986 reported cases of lobbying, Chevron had sought to influence corporate tax law 144 times.

Sometimes contributors such as Wirth of Chevron and Sommers of API have accepted that pollution can contribute to global warming. However, all stopped before they recognized it as a direct cause.

Maloney later said that executives “obviously lie like tobacco executives,” referring to a 1994 hearing where CEOs falsely stated that nicotine was not addictive.

Supergiant Oil Companies “Fail to Produce” Climate Change Cover-Up Documents

The committee also asked companies to produce documents detailing their role in disinformation campaigns. After the companies “failed to produce” the documents, Maloney announced the committee’s intention to subpoena them for the relevant documents.

Maloney asked all senators if they “would no longer spend money directly or indirectly to oppose efforts to reduce emissions and fight climate change.” The CEOs of the four companies have refused to make any commitments in this regard.

Republican members of the committee denounced his actions as an attempt to distract the public. Representative Virginia Foxx said the hearing was “part of a disinformation campaign led by Democrats,” while offering no evidence.

The committee is also of particular interest to pro-fossil fuel senators among ruling Democrats. President Joe Biden has made accelerating America’s energy transition a priority, but lawmakers in his party have repeatedly hindered progress in legislation. In particular, West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin has sparked controversy with his frequent objections to energy and climate issues.

Earlier this year, a sting from the journalistic unit of Greenpeace UK Unearthed exposed Manchin’s frequent communications with major oil lobbyists. A senior ExxonMobil lobbyist called Manchin a “kingmaker” in the US Senate, also naming 10 other senators considered “crucial” to lobbying efforts. Manchin also owns millions of dollars in shares of fossil fuel companies and has regularly received large donations from fossil fuel companies.

Committee members have already discussed the possibility of summoning party members to testify about their experience before the committee.

Ukrainian Congress Committee of America celebrates 80th anniversary of Babyn Yar massacres https://congresips.com/ukrainian-congress-committee-of-america-celebrates-80th-anniversary-of-babyn-yar-massacres/ https://congresips.com/ukrainian-congress-committee-of-america-celebrates-80th-anniversary-of-babyn-yar-massacres/#respond Fri, 01 Oct 2021 12:55:53 +0000 https://congresips.com/ukrainian-congress-committee-of-america-celebrates-80th-anniversary-of-babyn-yar-massacres/ The following statement was released by the Ukrainian Congress of America Committee on September 28.

The following statement was released by the Ukrainian Congress of America Committee on September 28.

The Ukrainian Congress Committee of America (UCCA), the representative organization of nearly two million Americans of Ukrainian descent, recalls with deep sadness one of the darkest chapters in genocide history – the massacres by Babyn Yar. At the end of September, 80 years ago, during the Nazi occupation of Kiev, the horrific slaughter of tens of thousands of innocent men, women and children began in Babyn Yar (which means “ravine of old women” in Ukrainian). Although this is only one site among many of the Holocaust that terrorized all the Jews of Europe, it is a site of particular tragedy for Ukraine.

Within 36 hours, more than 30,000 Jews were forced from their homes in Kiev, taken to the Babyn Yar ravine and ruthlessly slaughtered by Hitler’s henchmen as part of their final solution to rid Europe of the Jewish people. Following this first mass execution, a restricted area around Babyn Yar Ravine was cordoned off with barbed wire. The killings, however, did not end. Over the following years, the mass grave swelled with tens of thousands of other victims.

During the last years of World War II and until the German retreat from Kiev, Babyn Yar became a real battlefield, where around 170,000 victims – among them Jews, Ukrainians, Poles, Roma, political opponents, the clergy, the UPA [Ukrainian Insurgent Army] Soviet members and prisoners of war – were ruthlessly murdered.

As the German armies began their retreat from Soviet Ukraine, the Nazis attempted to cover up the evidence of the massacre. This was followed by decades of Soviet propaganda that hid the truth about the atrocities committed in the ravine. For years after this tragedy, the Soviet Union barely recognized the Babyn Yar massacre. It was not until Ukraine renewed its independence in 1991 that the few survivors of those early days in Babyn Yar, as well as international Jewish and Ukrainian communities, were allowed to openly mourn the innocent victims of Babyn Yar.

During a week-long commemoration in 1991, a newly independent Ukraine officially recognized this painful page in its history, ending a 50-year Soviet silence on the massacres and opening a new positive chapter in Judeo-relations. Ukrainian.

The UCCA strongly condemns the heinous crimes of genocide committed 80 years ago in Babyn Yar, as well as the inhumane atrocities of the Holocaust which resulted in the deaths of millions of innocent victims. We mourn the loss of the tens of thousands of Jews, Ukrainians and others murdered for no reason in Babyn Yar, and will continue to honor the memory of the victims, restore their dignity taken away by Hitler’s criminal orders, and to pray for the rest of their eternal souls.

May the Babyn Yar tragedy, a dark page in history shared by the Jewish and Ukrainian peoples, continue to be taught to succeeding generations so that the memory of these terrible events may never be extinguished. May she also remind us of the need to show honor and dignity to our fellow human beings, whatever our differences, or perhaps because of them, for we are all unique and precious members of the human race.

Never forget! ная пам’ять!

  • Sidhu sends his resignation to the President of the Indian National Congress Party, Sonia Gandhi.
  • Says he “can never compromise on the future of Punjab and the Punjab’s welfare agenda”.
  • Says he will “continue to serve” the party.

Indian politician and former cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu has resigned as chairman of the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee.

Sidhu shared a copy of his resignation letter, sent to Indian National Congress (INC) President Sonia Gandhi, on his official Twitter account.

According to Sidhu’s letter, he resigned “for the future and the well-being of the Indian Punjab”.

“The collapse of a man’s character stems from the compromised corner, I can never compromise on the future of Punjab and the Punjab’s welfare agenda. Therefore, I am resigning from my post as chairman of the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee, ”the letter reads.

However, Sidhu said in the letter that he would “continue to serve” the party.

According to Indian media reports, some INC members argue that the reason for Sidhu’s resignation is his disappointment as to why his name was not suggested for the post of Chief Minister of the Punjab after the resignation of former Chief Minister of Punjab Amarinder Singh.

Reports also suggest that Sidhu may be appointed as chief minister of the Punjab this month.

Thiruvananthapuram (Kerala) [India], Sep 16 (ANI): Congress leader G Rethikumar, former secretary general of the Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee, joined the Communist Party of India (Marxist) on Wednesday.

“KPCC Secretary General has resigned from the main composition of the Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee. RethiKumar G, KPCC Secretary General has sent his resignation to KPCC Chairman K Sudhakaran,” said an official statement from the leader.

Rethikumar had worked for the party for 40 years. He also mentioned in his resignation that he had tried to meet with KPCC chairman K Sudhakaran about some organizational matters, but was unable to meet with him.

After his resignation, he met the leaders of the CPI (M) at the AKG center. This center is the office of the State Committee of the CPI (M). Here he told reporters that he will work with CPI (M) in the future.

On Tuesday, former KPCC general secretary AP Anil Kumar resigned from the Congress party and joined the CPI (M). Another, the former KPCC secretary, PS Prasanth, had also left the Congress party and joined the CPI (M) in the first week of September.

CPI (M) Acting Secretary A Vijayaraghavan briefly addressed reporters and said more congressional leaders will come to CPIM in the coming days.

The CPI (M) in Kerala has opened its doors to leaders who have defected from Congress, Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan calling Congress leaders to join leftist parties “a healthy sign”.

“The congressional camp is on the verge of collapse. So those associated with the party move out before it collapses completely. It is a natural process. Many congressional leaders know that the party is unable to fight the BJP at the center and defend secular values, so they come to the IPC (M), which is a healthy sign, ”Kerala’s chief minister said at a press conference on Wednesday.

This comes at a time when two parties – Congress and CPI (M) – are working together to build a formidable opposition unit at the national level by joining with other regional parties.

The chief minister’s comment comes on a day when another secretary general of Congress, Rathikumar G, resigned from the party to join the ruling CPI (M) party. He reached AKG Center, the headquarters of the CPI (M), where he was greeted by CPI (M) Politburo member Kodiyeri Balakrishnan. (ANI)

Hours after Saturday’s local government of the All Progressives Congress (APC), a crisis pointing to mistrust shakes the committee that organized the congress for Oyo state.

This came to the fore on Monday with a statement citing committee secretary Abdulazeez Usman and other members as committee chairman Hilary Amodu had fled with the results of the congress.

In the statement, the secretary and committee members alleged that the committee chairman left his hotel in Jericho, Ibadan on Sunday around noon and had not yet been seen or could not be reached by phone.

Committee members alleged that Mr. Amodu left all members of the Jericho, Jericho, Ibadan apartments, claiming that he wished to see a friend in the city and that he would return to the hotel shortly, but did not did not come back on Monday.

Committee members said they suspected foul play because the president flatly refused to drop results already submitted for 29 local government areas when asked to do so.

The statement said, “We haven’t seen or heard from him since. He did not return to the hotel where we are all staying and our repeated calls on his lines were not answered.

“We suspect foul play that the president is working to compromise Congress.

“We reported the matter to our party headquarters with a request for new election results.

“We want to assure our party members in Oyo State not to worry or express any fear about the development, as no manipulation can be done on the results.

“Our party is a very organized and disciplined party and the congressional process put in place by the Interim Extraordinary Congress Planning Committee (CECPC) cannot be tampered with or compromised in any way.”

However, committee chair Hilary Amodu, in an interview with the Nigerian Tribune, denied running away with the result.

Amodu said he had to leave his hotel for Abuja due to his sightings of strange movements around the hotel as well as the hint that some people were determined to storm the hotel to falsify the results. .

Upon leaving Ibadan for Abuja, Amodu said the results of 32 local government areas, except for the one in Kajola local government area, had already been submitted to the committee.

He said, however, that he had to call on his secretary and members to travel to Abuja to refine the result, especially in local government areas where more than one result was submitted.

When asked if Abdulazeez Usman was the same secretary of the committee he worked with, Amodu said he worked with another secretary, Taofik Abdussalam, who was then sent to him by the party’s national secretariat.

Amodu said, however, that he and committee members were about to start drafting their report for submission while the party’s national secretariat harmonized all matters relating to the congress.

“I’m in Abuja, I have to start writing the congress report. Everyone agreed on the consensus and they all submitted to the committee.

“How can I be absent? What happened was that all of a sudden while I was in my hotel I started to see some strange movements and they hinted at me that thugs were going to invade the place where I was. found me.

“They said they came to my hotel to submit the results and I said the results are submitted to the party secretariat.

“I wasn’t comfortable and had to take shelter first.

“I also had another problem with having two secretaries, but I said it would be settled by the national party secretariat.

“My plan is to call my secretary and my members and we should meet in Abuja to polish and start writing the results in the results sheets.

“I couldn’t do it in Ibadan due to strange movements.

“It is important for me to state here categorically that as chairman of the committee, I was not in Oyo state to tender a gladiator or an individual group and I do not know of any member of the committee who has shown interest in any of the members or leaders of Oyo APC in the conduct of Congress.

“I can say unequivocally that we were in the state as impartial umpires. Our mandate was to be fair to all parties involved and also to ensure strict adherence to previously published guidelines for the exercise by the CECPC.

“I only went to Abuja to meet the deadline set for my Committee by our Party’s National Secretariat for the submission of Congress results and reports.

“I would like to assure all the members of the APC in Oyo that only the results of the Congress produced on Saturday in the designated places will be submitted to the National Secretariat of our great Party for necessary authorization when it is only about the direction of the CECPC. who has the power to announce it to the public afterwards.
