Microsoft employees issued a letter protesting oil companies and the company's work and said it was a "conspiracy" to contribute to climate change.
"To really impact, we all need to mobilize and work together and demand a fundamental change in Microsoft's priorities." As mentioned in
Gizmodo the letter earlier this week announced that Microsoft would work with oil companies, including Chevron, to "accelerate the creation of innovative oil and digital technologies." "We can't ignore Microsoft's public offerings in the climate crisis," he said.
This letter comes as workers around the world are ready to begin work tomorrow to take action on climate change. Amazon, Google and Microsoft employees said they plan to join the global climate strike. Faced with employee protests this morning, Jeff Bezos announced the action Amazon will take to combat climate change.
Microsoft did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the letter.
"Big oil should not have the luxury of choosing the most convenient and profitable service," concluded. "All technology companies must come together to blame the use of cloud and AI services for non-renewable energy extraction and to work together to end fossil fuel consumption."
