Funny Cartoon to Exxpose Exxon's Whopping Profits January 30, 2006 12:26 PM

Action Alert


This morning 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 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: (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  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.

The Cartoon ExxonMobil Doesn't Want You to See January 30, 2006 12:29 PM

Exxpose Exxon

Have a Laugh &
Make a Difference

Watch our cartoon

Watch our new cartoon on ExxonMobil and learn what you can do to help get ExxonMobil to clean up its act.

Forward this Message...

Today ExxonMobil will announce the largest corporate profit in history --more than $36 billion. What they won’t say is when they’ll stop using those massive profits to support policies that threaten our polar bears, sea otters, and the great wild places you and I care about.

Now ExxonMobil has a new CEO, Rex W. Tillerson. Defenders of Wildlife, a proud member of the ExxposeExxon Coalition, is asking for your help again to get ExxonMobil and its new CEO to turn over a new leaf.

Here’s what you can do to lend a hand…

Step 1. Watch Our Hilarious New Cartoon.
Our sidesplitting new sixty-second animation may get your toe tapping, and it will certainly make you think (Don't forget to turn on your speakers!).

Step 2. Tell ExxonMobil to Clean Up Its Act.
Tell new ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson that you won't buy his company's gas unless (or until) he steers the company in a different direction. ExxonMobil needs to stop bankrolling lobbying efforts to drill in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and along our coasts, paying for junk science to debunk global warming, and stonewalling on paying for damage caused by the Exxon Valdez oil spill. It's high time the company cleaned up its act and started making a more significant investment in the development of cleaner energy sources.

Step 3. Tell Your Friends.
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.

If you think it’s time for ExxonMobil to change its ways, you’re not alone. Since January 5th, almost 20,000 of you have pledged not to buy gas from the company until ExxonMobil cleans up its act.

Why are we so concerned about ExxonMobil? In the past five years, ExxonMobil has spent nearly $37 million on lobbyists and millions more in campaign contributions to its pet politicians to relentlessly push its agenda on Capitol Hill.

That agenda would not only harm wildlife, but also open our nation’s pristine coastlines to destructive oil drilling. It would prevent effective strategies to reduce global warming and undermine real energy solutions. And it would sacrifice some of America’s greatest natural treasures for the sake of short-term profits.

Please take just a couple of moments to watch the video, take action, and help spread the word. With your help, we can convince ExxonMobil to change its policies for the better.
