Ignorance isn’t an excuse.

In 2005, ExxonMobil scored 14 out of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Corporate Equality Index.

“ExxonMobil may be second to BP in size, but with sales of over $320 billion, the company broke earnings records in 2005. And that’s not all. Between its public denial of global warming and steadfast efforts to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge for drilling…. (More)”

Global Warming

ExxonMobil Contributed Five Percent of Global Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Last 120 Years, by William Baue, SocialFunds.com, Jan 30, 2004.

“Friends of the Earth calculates that ExxonMobil contributed five percent of the world’s manmade carbon dioxide emissions over its 120-year history… FoE commissioned independent researchers in Spring 2003 to conduct the studies.”

The first study, written by Richard Heede of Colorado-based Climate Mitigation Services, estimates ExxonMobil’s emissions of carbon dioxide and methane (another GHG) from the founding of ExxonMobil precursor Standard Oil Trust in 1882 to 2002. During this period, the combustion of ExxonMobil-produced fossil fuels resulted in the emission of approximately 20.3 billion tons of carbon, the equivalent of between 4.7 percent and 5.3 percent of global carbon dioxide emissions.

The second study, written by Jim Salinger and Greg Bodeker of New Zealand-based National Institute of Water & Atmospheric Research (NIWA), runs the results of the first study through the well-respected and widely-used “Bern CC” climate model. This process extrapolates the environmental implications of GHG emissions. This study finds that ExxonMobil’s emissions have contributed between 3.4 percent and 3.7 percent of total attributable temperature change since 1882, and 2 percent of the sea level rise.

ExxonMobil is one of those companies which are so big and widespread that they are almost a law upon themselves.
Apart from Global warming, there is a very large and growing environmental damage caused by the exploration, production and transportation of crude oil. Its steadily and surely poisoning the planet.
Having said that, I must admit I work for a large global multinational, thankfully nothing to do with oil.

exxon mobil has no creditabilties whatsoever to do a survey on human rights.It is pro US government and their foreign policies. Right here in Malaysia….exxon mobil play divide to rule company politics.
Certain racialists are controlling certain Depts.
They should look at their own dirty backyards and stop judging others.You can be sure that this survey is not done for the benefit of Malaysia. How many US companies do things for the benefits of others…you tell me. It’s in their blood.and their God is getting money …by hook or by crook.Better exxon mobil do their own survey on their own government. Human rights?…….millions die like flies because US govt. do not care.Why not they survey how many millions died under US dirty wars for oil and money controls.

Dear EW,

Feeling the “heat” literally, I heard ExxonMobil has committed to donate generously towards “idolsgiveback charity drive” announced during last night’s show at Fox.
Case of “Too little, too late” ?!

Global warming? Why don’t exxon mobil realise the whole world is getting hotter and having skin diseases due to America testing their so call deffensive missiles ..shooting upwards to the sky…creating a hole at the Ozone area. Whole world is suffering from America’s unfair and hypocrtical foreign policies too. I wish exxon will add up all those died under so call USA government world policeman policy.
Ofcourse…that must not be said again …hoping humans have short memories…yet for years we know how cruel Japan was during WW11…twisted facts…which was infact FORCED by America for Japan to take that course….Japan has no choice. See how cunning they are.
America or any American companies do not try teach other countries how to be good and honest people. If they have a conscience…get out of Iraq and use the billions to help the hungry…sick and needies.
