GM Takes Notice, But More Action Needed

GM Takes Notice, But More Action Needed

GM is feeling the heat. We've gathered more than 15,000 petition signatures to the auto maker demanding it stop funding propaganda that disputes climate change science along along with our allies at Forecast the Facts. And GM's top boss has taken notice.

When confronted with the company's sponsorship of the Heartland Institute — a conservative propaganda machine that pushes misinformation about global warming in the media and schools — GM CEO Dan Akerson said he would "look into it."
 
We appreciate Akerson's promise to investigate the matter, but we're stepping up the pressure and will not relent until GM hits the brakes on Heartland funding.
 
We are actively looking for people who currently own a GM car or are thinking about buying one. Already dozens of consumers have pledged not to buy GM again until the company stops funding global warming deniers.
 
We're planning to build on that outrage, by mobilizing more GM customers past, present and future and running ads that directly target people shopping for cars. Our best chance to convince GM to change course remains to squeeze them where it hurts: their wallet. Stay tuned fore developments in this campaign.
