Exxon Mobile

Somebody should issue a fatwah on Exxon Mobile.

15 years after the Exxon Valdez ran aground on Bligh Reef, two judgements were ruled on against Exxon. Both judgements were appealed by Exxon, and won. Today a third judgement was handed down ordering Exxon Mobile to pay $4.5 billion in punitive damages and $2.25 billion in interest. The award would go to nearly 32,000 people, including small coastal communities, small businesses and Alaska natives.

Pink shrimp and herring have not recovered from the accident. There are still pockets of oil in rocks in the sea bed that is slowly poisoning the surrounding sea life.

Yet, Exxon Mobile feels the settlement is too much.

We at the ABP don't get agitated much. But, here goes; "hey Exxon Mobile, Fuck You".

I remember the Exxon Valdez. I remember seeing it in the movie, Waterworld, and thinking "that's not funny." I also remember seeing my son, who was two years old at the time, crying at the sight of oil-drenched birds on the Alaska shoreline. He said, "they're not going to die, are they; he glanced back and forth between my wife and I, saw our expressions, and cried even harder.
