Exxon scores a massive profit, while gas prices skyrocket and the victims of Valdez go unpaid

Save Our Envirnoment Acts!

Exxon's tanker killed hundreds of thousands of seals, otters, birds, fish and whales when it spilled 11 million gallons of thick, deadly crude oil into the waters of Alaska's pristine Prince William Sound in 1989.
Amazingly, 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 spill 16 years ago!


Click here now to send a free message to ExxonMobil's CEO Lee Raymond to protest this and the company's other harmful policies!
Worse still, ExxonMobil's dirty deeds go way beyond the ugly legacy of the deadly oil spill.
ExxonMobil is the only oil company that's part of Arctic Power, the group lobbying Congress to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling.


ExxonMobil has spent over $15 million since 1998 to deny the existence of global warming by funding junk science groups to cloud the debate.
ExxonMobil is making record profits but still won't invest significant amounts in cleaner, healthier energy or support greater fuel economy. (The company's pledge to research advanced energy technology is the equivalent of just TWO days' worth of its 2004 profits!)

This morning twelve of the nation’s biggest environmental groups launched
Exxpose Exxon, a major campaign to mobilize thousands of Americans to urge ExxonMobil to clean up its act!
We're off to a great start with a great
New York Times article about the campaign and a story on NPR's Morning Edition this morning. But we need YOUR help to really make this work!
Click here to Exxpose Exxon by emailing CEO Lee Raymond to tell him what you think of the company's harmful environmental policies and let him know you won't buy their gas or products.

Thanks to our country’s over-dependence on oil, gas prices are reaching record highs, global temperatures are climbing, the polar ice caps are melting, sea levels are rising, and the U.S. is forced to import millions of barrels of foreign oil every day.

Yet ExxonMobil is doing almost nothing to reduce our oil dependence while spending millions to block environmental protections and sabotage efforts to slow global warming.
We can't afford to pay the price for ExxonMobil's dangerous policies any longer! Join our campaign to Exxpose Exxon and pressure the company to change these policies that threaten the future of our planet.
Click here to join us by emailing CEO Lee Raymond now to let him know that you won't buy ExxonMobil's gas or invest in their stock.
Please join the Sierra Club, Defenders of Wildlife, U.S. PIRG, Union of Concerned Scientists, Greenpeace, Alaska Coalition, Friends of the Earth, Natural Resources Defense Council, National Environmental Trust, Alaska Oceans Program, MoveOn.org Political Action, and the Alaska Wilderness League in contacting ExxonMobil today
