Dear Exxon Mobil,

Hey, it’s great to see you on twitter! 140 characters isn’t enough for my comments though, so I am writing a letter.

Do you really think Al Gore deserved a Nobel Peace Prize? I mean he’s a pretty cool guy and all, but he’s no Jimmy Carter or Henry Kissinger! I think it’s a shame your company isn’t on that list. Oil has done far more for the world than Al Gore ever has.

I read online that it takes more than a gallon of gas to make a gallon of ethanol, so was wondering what you guys think about this. It seems silly to me, like trying to invent a perpetual motion machine, but I figured I’d ask some people with some expertise. I guess if this is true it’s a good deal for you. Ethanol production can only increase the demand for oil!

Lastly, I was wondering if you have plans to ever pay the fines for that whole Valdez thing. Seems to me that the smart move would be to keep putting it off until the people affected grow old and pass away, then maybe you can get the fine reduced down to a few hundred bucks. Maybe this is your strategy. You have some pretty smart lawyers working for you.

Anyway, just wanted to throw some feedback your way, so thanks for taking the time to read this.
