Block Exxon CEO and Putin Honoree From Secretary of State Nomination

Target: Robert Menendez, United States Senator

Goal: Block Rex Tillerson’s nomination for Secretary of State.

Donald Trump has chosen Rex Tillerson, an Exxon CEO, for Secretary of State. We are already facing the threat of the return of fossil fuels, but Exxon in particular has already caused major damage to the environment in the past, most notably their infamous oil spill of 1989. If elected as Secretary of State, Tillerson could do even worse damage using his power to unleash oil production worldwide.

Oil has done so much damage globally over the past few decades. Oil rigs have subplanted nature, spills have killed or endangered the lives of millions of animals. It pollutes the water, it gives off dangerous exhaust fumes. Today, there are several better options for energy sources. Tillerson will completely ignore these facts to promote the overuse of oil and damage the environment more than it already has been.

We cannot allow this. We cannot let this man become Secretary of State and use his power for something so dangerous. Donald Trump’s choices are becoming worse by the day, and Tillerson is proof of it. Sign this petition to block this man from this position of power.


Dear Senator Menendez,

Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson has been named Donald Trump’s pick for Secretary of State, which spells bad news for our efforts to phase out fossil fuels. If given this kind of authority, Tillerson will reinstate oil as a major fuel and force its comeback, endangering all life on this planet. Oil has caused many devastating spills and much pollution, contaminating much of the planet for years.

We cannot let Tillerson be placed in charge. The environment is much too important to let big oil make a comeback, and you have the power to block Tillerson’s nomination. Please object to this man becoming Secretary of State and help protect our environment from ruin.
