Trespassing charges have been dropped against BXE’s Greg Yost, left, and Steve Norris, right, for their sit-in that temporarily closed an Exxon gas station in Asheville, NC,  in November 2015. Shina Maphet, center, had pleaded guilty and was sentenced to time served. They were drawing attention to news that Exxon knew about climate change for decades but created doubt about the science to protect the company’s business model.
