Bonta accuses oil companies of hiding climate change truths to boost profits, calling for accountability.
Bonta, born to a Filipino-American family with labor activist roots, pursued a Yale law degree and entered politics.
He's committed to fighting for vulnerable working-class and frontline communities against climate change impacts.
