ExxonMobil expose´ documentary

Joe Public Films has released its 4th documentary, directed by Tom Jackson, “Out of Balance: ExxonMobil’s Impact on Climate Change”. The hour-long expose´ of the oil giant focuses primarily on ExxonMobil’s support of climate change “skeptics”, and its influence on the Bush administration.

In Spring 2006, mainstream media announced that the debate about the human impact on climate was over, however the debate among most climate scientists had ended long ago, unbeknownst to most Americans.

Out of Balance looks at how ExxonMobil spearheaded the misinformation campaign while making record profits. It also looks at the history of the company, showing a pattern of behavior that goes all the way back to Standard Oil days, through the response to the Exxon Valdez oil spill, to their current refusal to take action against climate change. The film features leading climate scientists such as Michael Oppenheimer and Robert Watson, environmentalists from Exxpose Exxon, Greenpeace and other organizations join with a former Exxon executive, US government whistle-blower Rick Piltz, and leading authors such as Bill McKibben, Elizabeth Kolbert, and Ross Gelbspan.
