Greenpeace International
May 3rd, 2001

U.S. President George Bush has announced that his administration is abandoning U.S. support for the Kyoto Protocol, the international treaty to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The decision has sparked outrage around the world and there have been many calls for Bush's corporate backers to distance themselves from this decision.

On 5 April, Greenpeace launched a new climate campaign by writing to the 100 largest U.S. corporations, many of whom funded Bush's election campaign, and asking them to explain their position on the Kyoto Protocol. As of today, only ExxonMobil, the largest U.S. corporation, has responded, not with a letter, but by taking out ads in major newspapers attacking the Kyoto Protocol.

Please help stop global warming by joining our campaign to force the largest U.S. corporations to take a clear position on the Kyoto Protocol and greenhouse gas reduction.

  1. Download a climate action kit which contains a list of the 100 largest U.S. corporations from:

  2. Write to the local branches of these companies in your own community and ask them "Does your company support the ratification and entry into force of the Kyoto Protocol?"

  3. Use the poster, flyer and other information in the action kit to promote this campaign in your own community.

  4. Join the Climate Action Group and participate in online discussions on this campaign at:

Please help send a strong signal to George Bush and the US corporations that support him.
