Our country remains overly dependent on oil, which has serious consequences ranging from rising gasoline prices that burden every American to global warming that threatens current and future generations.
This addiction to oil represents a failed energy strategy, one that your company not only supports but has helped to develop. I am most disturbed by:
* ExxonMobil's active support of drilling in the pristine Arctic National Wildlife Refuge;
* ExxonMobil's efforts to block meaningful action to cut global warming pollution and its funding of junk science to hide the real facts about global warming;
* ExxonMobil's conscious decision to forgo investment in clean energy solutions - despite your record profits at a time of rising gasoline prices;
* ExxonMobil's failure to pay all of the punitive damages awarded to fishermen and others injured by the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill.
ExxonMobil represents yesterday's energy policy; I would rather spend my money and time moving forward, not backward.
That's why I will NOT purchase ExxonMobil's gas or products, invest in ExxonMobil stock, or work for the company.

BP is getting the jump on these guys with the whole "We are an energy company, not nessecarily an oil company" ads. At least they acknowledge that global warming is happening and that things must change. Therefore, BP and Citgo is where I fill up and I avoid Exxon at all costs. (Except if it's late and I'm running out of gas). But don't take my advice on where to fill up the tank - Others are asking the questions and getting the answers .
