Boycott Exxon!


It seems that the big guns of the environmental movement are now pointed on ExxonMobil. Some of the groups behind the boycott are: the U.S. Public Interest Group, Defenders of Wildlife, the Sierra Club, the Natural Resources Defense Council, the Union of Concerned Scientists and MoveOn Political Action Committee. This website by the coalition details some of Exxon's bad environmental record and its numerous attempts to undermine the fight against global warming by any means available (shady stuff). This Mother Jones article on the subject is very interesting. The journalist has found at least 40 organizations that have been funded by Exxon to try to cast doubt on the scientific consensus about global warming (and if you don't believe there's one, maybe the propaganda got to you. You should have a look at this). We recommend that you pay a visit to ExxposeExxon's Action Center and join the boycott.
