The EXXON Connection ...
In spite of the recent leak of the damning 'Downing Street Memo,' some people still don't get it.
It's all about OIL. Be it the war or worse. Be it dying or killing. Be it climate change or any other man-made catastrophy. It's all about OIL.
One would have to have lived on the planet Krypton, for years, not to have heard of Kyoto. Likewise, Exxon and OIL.
Have you heard about this though? Lets call it the Exxon-Connection.
** President George Bush's decision not to sign the United States up to the Kyoto global warming treaty was partly a result of pressure from ExxonMobil, the world's most powerful oil company, and other industries, according to US State Department papers seen by the Guardian. **
Surprised to hear that? You shouldn't be. Surely you knew 'Bush Government Inc.' worked for the benefit of the 'big-buck- oil-boys' -- not the 'people'. Didn't you?
Stay with me. See if you can connect the dots. It's not difficult. Millions, right across the globe, already have.
** In briefing papers given before meetings to the US under-secretary of state, Paula Dobriansky, between 2001 and 2004, the administration is found thanking Exxon executives for the company's "active involvement" in helping to determine climate change policy, ... **
Getting interested? You should be. Here's some more of the same.
** Until now Exxon has publicly maintained that it had no involvement in the US government's rejection of Kyoto. But the documents, obtained by Greenpeace under US freedom of information legislation, suggest this is not the case.
"Potus [president of the United States] rejected Kyoto in part based on input from you [the Global Climate Coalition]," says one briefing note before Ms Dobriansky's meeting with the GCC, the main anti-Kyoto US industry group, which was dominated by Exxon.
The papers further state that the White House considered Exxon "among the companies most actively and prominently opposed to binding approaches [like Kyoto] to cut greenhouse gas emissions".
But in evidence to the UK House of Lords science and technology committee in 2003, Exxon's head of public affairs, Nick Thomas, said: "I think we can say categorically we have not campaigned with the United States government or any other government to take any sort of position over Kyoto." **
My God. Talk about telling 'porkies'. Eh?
There are so many damned lies fed to the both the UK and US public, that it's hard to keep track of them all. And that's exactly how the evil architects of this whole web of deceit designed it to be.
Okay. Here's your final 'teaser'.
** "President Bush tells Mr Blair he's concerned about climate change, but these documents reveal the alarming truth, that policy in this White House is being written by the world's most powerful oil company. This administration's climate policy is a menace to humanity," **
