Join UCS Activists in Challenging Exxon Today!

Today, UCS Texas activists are gathering in Dallas to protest outside ExxonMobil’s annual shareholder meeting. We know not everyone can be there in person—but you can join your fellow activists in showing ExxonMobil and Congress how fed up you are with the oil giant's failure to address global warming. Send a letter to your members of Congress today. Tell them to reject any bill that lines ExxonMobil’s pockets with more tax breaks or permits oil drilling on America's pristine lands. 
 

Subject: Reject tax breaks for ExxonMobil

Dear Senator / Representative,

Today hundreds of activists are in Dallas, TX attending ExxonMobil's annual meeting to protest the corporation's opposition to developing clean energy solutions for America. In solidarity with them, I am writing to urge you to reject any bill that offer giveaways to ExxonMobil through additional tax breaks or permits oil drilling on our pristine lands and shorelines.

Drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and other special places would do nothing to lower gas prices or help us "get off oil," as President Bush has urged us to do. Increased drilling would simply further bloat the profits of ExxonMobil, the world's largest private oil company.

ExxonMobil uses those profits to fund global warming skeptics and refuses to invest in renewable energy sources. It's time for Congress to adopt REAL energy solutions that reduce global warming pollution, enhance our energy security, and save consumers money. Giveaways to ExxonMobil–from the Arctic Refuge to tax breaks–simply feed our addiction and line the pockets of ExxonMobil.

Sincerely,
