Boycott call against Exxon Mobil sign now

Boycott call against Exxon Mobil
In March of this year, George W. Bush announced that the United States would not ratify the Kyoto Treaty. Bush justified his rejection of the Kyoto Treaty stating it would not be in the best economic interests of the American people. It appears this rejection is more a response to Bush needing to payback the large corporations who paid for his presidential election campaign, namely Exxon Mobil.

Obviously, global warming is the most serious threat for the survival of humankind. The U.S. is the world's largest producer of greenhouse gas producing 25\% of the worldwide C02 emissions with just 4\% of the world's population.

Global warming is becoming more and more apparent. The warmest decade on record was the 1990's with 1998 being the warmest year ever. At this current trend, in less than 15 years, the glacier on Africa's Kilimanjaro, will melt.

At the beginning of this year, the IPCC (United States Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) discovered that the poorest parts of the world's population will suffer the greatest from the effects of global warming. People who depend on agriculture, fishing, and forestry will be devastated, and the inhabitants of the world's last rainforests will be doomed to watch their environment be destroyed by climate change. Furthermore, people will suffer from global warming worldwide. If we don't act now, we can expect to see a higher frequency of storms, floods and disastrous droughts as a result of climate changes. Famine and disease will spread further into developing countries, and streams of refugees will begin to flow outward.

In response to the irresponsible climate policy of George W. Bush and companies encouraging him to not ratify the Kyoto treaty, we feel forced to take action:

We support the consumer boycott called out at the 1st World Conference of the Green Parties, and we will help bring this idea into the public's mind by actions and through public relations.

Five Reasons to Boycott Exxon Mobil
1. Exxon Mobil is the power behind George W. Bush. Exxon Mobil was a large donor of the Republican Party giving over one million dollars, more than all the other oil companies. Ninety-one percent of total contributions went to the Republican Party.
2. Exxon Mobil has been the most active company undermining the Kyoto Treaty. They employed advertising campaigns using so-called "open ads".
3. Exxon Mobil doesn't care about climate change and refuses to accept the link between their business and global warming.
4. Exxon Mobil has a history of misleading the public and their shareholders by employing selective, outdated or incorrect scientific studies. In cooperation with the American Petroleum Institute, they started a campaign to undermine the scientific consensus on the threat of climate change as it was established by the ICCP (United States Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change). They spent 7 million dollars on this campaign. Exxon Mobil was also a member of the Global Climate Coalition. This lobby-organization has spent millions of dollars against efforts to stop global warming and continues to lobby against climate protection. The aggressive lobbying and the constant denial of global warming of the group caused so much anger that at the end of 1999 and beginning of 2000, a lot of big corporations like Ford, General Motors, and Texaco ended their membership of the Global Climate Coalition. But not Exxon Mobil. They were forced out after the group ended its corporate membership program, announcing that only Trade associations would be eligible for membership. In 1998 Exxon Mobil presented a petition signed by 17,000 so-called "scientists". Among the "scientists" who signed were people like Ginger Spice (Spice Girls) and some actors of the TV series, M.A.S.H. It's not quite clear what the scientific achievements of these people are. It was discovered later that this Exxon Mobil petition was being organized by the "Oregon Institute for Science and Medicine" headquartered in a tin shack!
5. Exxon Mobil doesnt believe renewable energy has a future. Even today, Exxon Mobil disputes the possibilities of renewable energy suggesting the "non-petroleum sources of energy" are merely "fashionable". Exxon Mobil doesnt invest, unlike other big-oil corporations, in renewable energy. Their CEO, Lee Raymond, said in Beijing in 1997, "With no readily available economic alternatives on the horizon, fossil fuels will continue to supply most of the world's energy needs for the foreseeable future."

If Bush listens only to the big oil corporations, then we have to make the big oil corporations listen to us! Stop Global Warming! Boycott Exxon Mobil!
