Exxon Boycott


According to the International Herald Tribune, various liberal and environmental groups are planning a major boycott of everyone’s favorite climate-change skeptics at ExxonMobil. It’s been about a decade since a major single-company boycott has gotten underway, but then, Exxon has probably done more to set back the environmental and scientific cause on global warming than any other single organization. On that note, it’s worth dredging up Chris Mooney’s big expose of Exxon from the last issue of Mother Jones, which looked at the phony science being peddled on climate change, along with the Exxon money behind it. Not to mention our chart version too.

Oh, and you can check out the boycott here.

Fact:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
