Exxpose Exxon

The morning of January 30th, oil giant ExxonMobil announced its record-breaking profits for 2005 to the public -- $36.13 billion!  That is the largest profit ever recorded by any corporation in America.

In response, the ExxposeExxon.com campaign has created a short, funny video lampooning Exxon's unfortunate combination of huge profits and tiny social conscience. 

Click the link below to check it out:  http://www.ExxposeExxon.com/movie (and don't forget to turn on your speakers!)

Please share the laughs by forwarding it on to all your friends and family.

The movie is funny, but ExxonMobil’s policies are not. Sadly, ExxonMobil’s profits have come at a huge cost -- both to consumers like you and me and to our environment. 

Recent reports show that 2005 was the warmest year on record!  The debate among scientists is no longer over whether or not global warming exists but over whether or not it's too late to stop a massive, catastrophic climate shift.

Yet, ExxonMobil uses its billions to actively sabotage efforts to slow global warming and to lobby Congress in support of drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and off of America’s majestic coasts.  Instead, ExxonMobil should invest in energy efficiency and renewable energy such as wind and solar power.

The good news is that we have a chance to change for the better the way ExxonMobil does business in 2006.  ExxonMobil CEO Lee Raymond retired in December after a long and extremely costly run. This month, Rex Tillerson took over as ExxonMobil’s new CEO.

You can help ExxonMobil change direction by asking Rex Tillerson to make the company a responsible corporate citizen that respects consumers and the environment.

Click here to watch our funny one-minute movie and then take action by emailing CEO Rex Tillerson.

Once you've watched the video, help increase the pressure on ExxonMobil's new CEO by taking one more minute to forward the movie to as many people as you can. 

Word of mouth will be crucial to our ability to influence ExxonMobil's new head honcho, Rex Tillerson.  If we hope to catch Rex's attention, we are going to need a lot of people to watch this little movie and send him a message. After all, Rex is a busy man with a multibillion dollar company to run. 

So please take a minute right now do whatever you can to help us spread the word about http://www.ExxposeExxon.com/movie.  Forward this message to your friends, family, and colleagues. Write about it on your blog. And do anything else you can think of! 

With your help, we can convince ExxonMobil to change its policies for the better.

Thank you again for all your help.
