From there, we will walk to ExxonMobil’s Dallas offices and stand strong in our renewed call for a meeting. Click the link to RSVP on Facebook if you happen to be in the Metroplex.

Exxon bails on Ride for the Future. Listen closely to their reason for flaking out on us.

Exxon just called. They flaked out on the meeting we scheduled.

Stay tuned for how to help!

Ride for the Future has traveled through many communities along its route to Dallas and ExxonMobil’s headquarters.
Along the way we have documented and highlighted people negatively impacted by the fossil fuel industry.
We will honor these people and share their stories during this event.
We will read testimonials collected from community partners in Lake Charles, Houston, Fayetteville and many more.
There will also be an opportunity for those in attendance to share how they have been affected by the fossil fuel industry.

Baton Rouge radio show host and environmental activist Stephanie Anthony talks about the importance of building and recognizing community in the South’s environmental justice movement.

Hillsboro, Texas

Texas isn’t fair
to the blemishes of its history,
as the waves of blue-and-white houses
speckle the landscape can attest to,
their facades, sparkling with dust, also drowning
in canals of weeds. The weeds
are kissing the front lawns
of the scruffiest men
that kindness can find,
bellowing up their hopeful eternity,
betraying an optimism unlikely
of shuttered-and-burned Texas prairie.

Sorry Evan, it’s a cutesy hoax by Greenpeace. Check it out. Besides, the permits to drill oil in the Arctic have already been approved by Obama (WSJ, NYT, etc.).
