She makes the driver blush

The following is from the very interesting site Exxpose Exxon

As the world's largest private oil company, ExxonMobil has the power to direct the energy industry and policy makers toward a smarter, cleaner, and more secure energy future. The solutions to reducing our dependence on oil while strengthening our economy, creating jobs, and protecting the earth are available today. Instead, ExxonMobil is using its profits and power to take America backwards and keep us addicted to oil.
ExxonMobil is the ONLY major oil company:

* Denying the urgency of global warming and funding front groups and think tanks that mislead the public about global warming and delay crucial action;
* Refusing to invest in clean, renewable energy that will reduce consumer energy costs, lessen America’s oil dependence, decrease air pollution and health care costs, and curb global warming;
* Still a member of Arctic Power, the single-issue lobby group trying to open the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

And if that weren’t enough:

* ExxonMobil has still not paid the punitive damages it owes for the 1989 Exxon Valdez Oil Spill! So far, 6,000 fisherman and others harmed by the devastating spill have died awaiting compensation.

At every turn, ExxonMobil has acted consistently to move our country backward on energy and global warming policy.
ExxonMobil is not changing on its own. It refuses to use its technological know-how and massive resources to positively impact the availability of alternative energies for the progress of this nation, and the world. It is now up to the American public to expose ExxonMobil and pressure it to join the rest of society in creating a vibrant renewable energy sector that supports a strong economy, new jobs, public health, national security, and a livable future for all.

If you want to see a cool website and discover a great band head over to find out more about Four Tet

Four Tet's flash-based website is one of the more visually stunning sites I've come across in recent weeks and as far as their music goes, they are one of more accessible instrumental/electronic bands around. They've been great to work to and just have on in the background while life is going on around you. Enjoy
