Today, the Union of Concerned Scientists released a new in-depth analysis scoring major fossil fuel companies on their climate actions. The Climate Accountability Scorecard: Ranking Major Fossil Fuel Companies on Deception, Disclosure, and Climate Action used 30 metrics to examine Arch Coal, BP, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, CONSOL Energy, ExxonMobil, Peabody Energy and Royal Dutch Shell.

Significant variations in how each of the eight companies are addressing global warming were found, but none has made a clean break from disinformation on climate science and policy, and none is adequately planning for a world free from carbon pollution, as laid out by the international climate agreement reached in Paris in 2015 and set to take effect next month.
