Many tech companies want to show off green credentials like big renewable energy commitments. But are these corporations really climate-friendly when they’re also helping oil companies? For example, Google uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to discover new oil reserves, while Microsoft hosts events at oil and gas conferences to highlight how polluters can use their products.
It’s time for these big tech companies to break up with big oil. This week, take action by signing the petition asking Amazon, Google and Microsoft to end contracts with fossil fuel companies and push for carbon neutrality by 2025. You can even make your own meme to share on social media and spread the message. Be sure to use the #BigTechLovesBigOil hashtag.
