Boycott Exxon

As you probably know, last week the House of Representatives passed a bill that would allow oil companies to drill for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. And which oil company has been lobbying the hardest for access to the Arctic Refuge? ExxonMobil.

Please encourage your friends to boycott ExxonMobil until they stop trying to drill in the Arctic Refuge and along our coasts.

Our decisions at the pump could make a big difference for our wildlife. You've already taken a big first step by letting ExxonMobil know that we won't buy their gas until they stop trying to drill in the Arctic Refuge and fighting efforts to curb global warming. Now, get your friends involved!
