Exxon: the Largest Bipolar Company on Earth

2014-04-10-duckoilcovered.gif

Too bad for the world that Exxon doesn’t get it: when it comes to climate change, they sound like a bunch of quacks.

Exxon: the Largest Bipolar Company on Earth acknowledges the serious threat of climate change from burning fossil fuels, but plans to mine and sell as much climate-changing fossil fuels as it can, insisting humanity needs it (directly countering the latest and most reputable report on climate change), and that its stock portfolio will thrive.

That depends on whether humanity continues to trust a company dominated by a bipolar mentality. The bad news? The US Congress does trust it, doing pitifully little to protect the US from this insanely suicidal path. The good news? The rest of the world is making other plans – and if the US doesn’t, it will be left in the dust.

Indeed, It’s Time To Slay Zombie Oil says one reputable policy expert, who notes that Big Oil has failed to predict and ignored the meteoric rise of clean renewable energy, which is becoming as cheap as fossil fuels increasingly around the world, and is getting cheaper as fossil fuel prices keep rising. Big Oil is dead and wrong, but that’s the last thing Exxon wants its investors to know.

Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here. This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is this year!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.
