ExxonMobil's Impact on Climate Change: Out of Balance (DVD)
BuzzFlash.com's Review (excerpt)

They are the largest corporation in the world. Think about their power in an age when corporations, on such a scale, supersede national sovereignty. ExxonMobil had a net income of more than $40 billion in 2007, and they are well on track to exceed that in 2008. They recently reported the largest quarterly net profit in corporate history.

On April 19th, we posted this piece of news: "Exxon Mobil Corp., which recorded the biggest profit for a U.S. company, raised CEO Rex Tillerson's compensation by 29 per cent last year to $16.7 million (U.S.)....Exxon Mobil Corp., which recorded the biggest profit for a U.S. company, raised CEO Rex Tillerson's compensation by 29 per cent last year to $16.7 million (U.S.)." And God only knows what he'll get as a golden parachute.

In keeping with the content of "An Inconvenient Truth" and "The llth Hour," this low budget short documentary offers a searing and damning indictment of ExxonMobil's role in delaying efforts to save the earth's environment, its indifference to disasters like the Exxon Valdez oil spill, and its overall menacing omnipotence to get what it wants through sheer size and financial clout. It is basically a nation unto itself in terms of setting its own agenda to exploit nations, labor, the environment and us. Opposition to ExxonMobil is like a dead fly on its windshield, as far as its board and management team is concerned -- and just consider Dick Cheney part of their team.

From The Wire :

“Before anyone had ever heard of “An Inconvenient Truth,” Portsmouth-based documentary filmmaker Tom Jackson (“World’s Apart”, “Greetings from Missile Street”) got it into his head to tell the story of the connection between “the largest problem the world has ever faced” and “the biggest private company in the history of humankind.”

...

Like Al Gore’s film, the hour-long “Out of Balance: ExxonMobil’s Impact on Climate Change” details the science and consequences of global warming. Its focus, however, is on ExxonMobil’s financing of media campaigns and global warming skeptics. To tell the story, he interviewed leading writers and scientists on the topic, from Cameron Wake at the University of New Hampshire’s Climate Change Research Center to Rajendra K. Pachauri, chair of IPCC.”
