Support oil companies that provide leadership on climate change
Original post made by Rwolf on Nov 4, 2009
Valero Energy has started a fear campaign to try to get people opposed to Cap & Trade legislation that will reduce carbon dioxide emissions. My local station has put really obnoxious advertisements on their pumps claiming cap & trade will raise gas prices astronomically. I was so offended that I drove off without buying their gas.
I've done a bit of homework online and found that BP (BP, Arco, AM/PM), Shell and ConocoPhillips (Union 76, Conoco , Phillips 66) are the only oil companies participating in the U.S. Climate Action Partnership, (www.us-cap.org, a partnership of leading energy businesses, The Nature Conservancy, Environmental Defense Fund, Natural Resources Defense Council, The Pew Center on Global Climate Change and World Resources Institute)
Help the planet, buy your fuel from responsible companies.
