Today ExxonMobil Announced Record Profits of $7.64 Billion in last 3 Month
While Their Policies are Enough to Make You (and The Planet) Sick


We all think about the bad things "big oil" does to our planet. But lumping all of "them" together is a mistake. One big oil company is far worse than the rest.


Consider this:


- Despite making a record profit of $25 billion last year, ExxonMobil is still shirking payment of the full amount it owes fishermen and natives hurt by the Exxon Valdez oil spill sixteen years ago.
- ExxonMobil is the only oil company that's still part of Arctic Power, the group lobbying Congress to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling. The rest bowed out due to public pressure.
- ExxonMobil has spent more than $15 million since 1998 to deny the existence of global warming by funding junk science groups to cloud the debate. BP, for example, not only admits we have a problem but is investing in solar energy research and selling real solar panels today to help deal with the problem.



TrueMajority is joining the nation's biggest environmental groups (including Sierra Club, U.S. PIRG, Greenpeace, and Natural Resources Defense Council) in the Exxpose Exxon campaign to mobilize thousands of Americans to urge ExxonMobil to clean up its act.

This was an email sent to me, I cannot believe how much these people make and then we give them bonuses and tax cuts!!!!!!!!!!!
