The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Exxon repeatedly highlighted the strength of its business model and its transparency and reporting integrity, particularly with regard to its oil and gas reserves and the value of those reserves. Exxon's public statements were materially false and misleading when made as they failed to disclose that: (1) Exxon's own internally generated reports concerning climate change recognized the environmental risks caused by global warming and climate change; (2) given the risks associated with global warming and climate change, Exxon would not be able to extract the existing hydrocarbon reserves Exxon claimed to have and, therefore, a material portion of Exxon's reserves were stranded and should have been written down; and (3) Exxon had employed an inaccurate "price of carbon" - the cost of regulations such as a carbon tax or a cap-and-trade system to push down emissions - in evaluating the value of certain of its future oil and gas prospects in order to keep the value of its reserves materially overstated. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.
