California Attorney General Rob Bonta has subpoenaed EXXONMobile as part of an investigation of the fossil fuel and petrochemical industries. Specifically, he seeks info on the role they have played in deceiving the public about the harmful effects of plastic production and the limitations of plastic recycling.
