Tell Congress to Reject ExxonMobil's Tactics and Take Real Action on Global Warming!

For years, ExxonMobil has been undermining science and casting doubt on the facts about global warming — just like the tobacco industry tried to mislead the public about the dangers of smoking.

On January 3, the Union of Concerned Scientists released a new report documenting ExxonMobil's use of Big Tobacco tactics to delay meaningful action on global warming. It's time to call on the new Congress to reject ExxonMobil’s disinformation campaign.

Tell your senators and representative to eliminate billions of dollars in tax breaks for major oil companies and support bills that ensure reductions in global warming pollution.

Please make your letter personal by adding in your own thoughts and concerns. Every letter makes a difference, but customized letters have the greatest effect!

I'm writing to urge you to reject ExxonMobil's disinformation campaign targeting climate science and to take real steps to address the urgent problem of global warming in the 110th congressional session.

The recent Union of Concerned Scientists report -- Smoke, Mirrors, and Hot Air: How ExxonMobil uses Big Tobacco Tactics to Manufacture Uncertainty on Climate Science -- documents how ExxonMobil used the same tactics as the tobacco industry to create uncertainty about the scientific evidence on global warming. ExxonMobil even funded some of the same individuals and organizations to help the corporation in its attempts to delay federal action addressing climate change.

Please reject this disinformation campaign by supporting several critical policies in the new Congress:

- immediately repeal tax breaks for ExxonMobil and other major oil companies and redirect money to renewable energy programs and energy efficiency technologies;

- support a science-based bill that would gradually reduce global warming emissions to 80 percent below 1990 levels by 2050;

- increase fuel economy standards for passenger vehicles; and

- require utilities to boost their use of clean renewable energy sources.

Please protect future generations from the threat of global warming by rejecting ExxonMobil's attempts to undermine science and supporting these critical solutions in the new session.

Thank you.
