AVAAZ.org‘s “Stop Climate Spin” campaign.

Coal and Oil Industry CEO: One of the biggest challenges for those of us in the oil and coal industry is preventing strong action on climate change.
CEO: It used to be easy. We ignored the problem, bought bigger and bigger private jets,
and politicians always followed our lead.
CEO: But now, leaders are negotiating a binding global treaty to stop the climate crisis.
CEO: They’ll create millions of jobs in a new, cleaner economy.

CEO: so our new strategy – run ads with fancy graphics to show you we care while we’re
lobbying politicians to punch the treaty full of loopholes. But your leaders are committing to a global treaty – please, don’t hold them to it.
END TAG: Don’t leave climate change to oil companies
BINDING GLOBAL CLIMATE TREATY NOW
