ACTIVISTS SHUT DOWN LOS ANGELES AND NEW YORK EXXONMOBIL GAS STATIONS

Greenpeace Delivers Message: “Don’t Buy ExxonMobil”

ACTIVISTS SHUT DOWN ...

Los California, CA – Greenpeace activists shut down a Mobil gas station today in the heart of Beverly Hills just hour after shutting down an Exxon station in Manhattan. Protestors peacefully chained themselves to gas pumps at both locations and dropped a banner that read “Stop Global Warming. Don’t Buy ExxonMobil.” The protests marked the start of a national day of action against ExxonMobil by environmental, human rights and pro-democracy groups.

“We are here today with a simple message – don’t buy ExxonMobil products until they stop interferring with government action on global warming,” said Melanie Duchin, Greenpeace Climate Campaigner. “It’s time for concerned citizens to use the power of the pocketbook to force the world’s number one global villian to change its ways.”

The Los Angeles protest followed an action earlier in the day at an Exxon station in New York City. Activists are demonstrating at another 80 Exxon and Mobil stations across the nation.

“Greenpeace has launched an international campaign against ExxonMobil that will continue until the company stops sabotaging government action on global warming and agrees to support mandatory reductions in global warming pollution,” saod Gary Cook Greenpeace Climate Campaign Coordinator. “In Europe and elsewhere, ExxonMobil is already feeling the heat from Greenpeace and consumers – now the campaign is being ramped up in the United States.”

Greenpeace has documented ExxonMobil’s efforts to prevent action on global warming in a report titled, “Denial and Deception: A Chronicle of ExxonMobil’s Corruption of the Global Warming Debate.” Despite multiple appeals from Greenpeace and others ExxonMobil has refused to change its policy. The company is using its sizable resources to support top politicians, like President Bush, in an effort to stifle U. S. action on global warming.

ExxonMobil’s history with George W. Bush dates back to Bush’s days as Governor of Texas. In 1997, then Governor Bush consulted Exxon and Marathon Oil to draft a proposal for so called “grandfather facilities placing pollution control on a volunteer basis. Eventually the secret consultations between Exxon and Governor Bush were revealed and the plan was thrown out.

The United States, with less than five percent of the world’s population, emits 25 percent of global warming pollution.
By all rights, this country should take responsibility and be leading the world in combating global warming.

ExxonMobile has spent hundreds of millions of dollars in an attempt to undermine meaningful efforts to solve global warming. Bush-Cheney has seen to it that their money has been well spent with the withdrawal from the Kyoto Protocol and the now infamous White House energy policy.

ExonMobile has developed the following strategy to stall global warming regulation:
- Undermine the accepted scientific consensus of climate change.
- Shape U.S. government policy.
- Mislead the public and policy makers over the economic implications of tackling global warming.
- Divide developed and developing countries in climate negotiations.

Beyond this strategy, the company has refused to endorse the most viable solution to climate change: investing in renewable energy technology.

Some corporations are cooking the books. ExxonMobile is cooking the planet.

I agree that we need to stop drilling in the arctic refuge, But someone is feeding bunk that we provide 25% of the pollution!!!!!!!!!! If that's the case, why is california getting (DOCUMENTED) pollution from china?
