Boycott call against Exxon Mobil In March of this year, George W. Bush announced that the United States would not ratify the Kyoto Treaty. Bush justified his rejection of the Kyoto Treaty stating it would not be in the best economic interests of the American people. It appears this rejection is more a response to Bush needing to payback the large corporations who paid for his presidential election campaign, namely Exxon Mobil. Obviously, global warming is the most serious threat for the survival of humankind. The U.S. is the world's largest producer of greenhouse gas producing 25% of the worldwide C02 emissions with just 4% of the world's population. Global warming is becoming more and more apparent. The warmest decade on record was the 1990's with 1998 being the warmest year ever. At this current trend, in less than 15 years, the glacier on Africa's Kilimanjaro, will melt. At the beginning of this year, the IPCC (United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) discovered that the poorest parts of the world's population will suffer the greatest from the effects of global warming. People who depend on agriculture, fishing, and forestry will be devastated, and the inhabitants of the world's last rainforests will be doomed to watch their environment be destroyed by climate change. Furthermore, people will suffer from global warming worldwide. If we don't act now, we can expect to see a higher frequency of storms, floods and disastrous droughts as a result of climate changes. Famine and disease will spread further into developing countries, and streams of refugees will begin to flow outward. In response to the irresponsible climate policy of George W. Bush an companies encouraging him to not ratify the Kyoto treaty, we feel forced to take action: We support the consumer boycott called out at the 1st World Conference of the Green Parties, and we will help bring this idea into the public's mind by actions and through public relations.
