#StopTillerson: Demand Senators Oppose Trump’s Pick for Secretary of State

UPDATE: Tillerson was confirmed as the Secretary of State with the fewest votes in American history. Democrats Mark Warner of Virginia, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, and independent Angus King of Maine, who caucuses with the Democrats, joined the Republicans to approve Tillerson. Sign the petition to tell your senators to demand they oppose Tillerson putting Exxon in charge of our foreign policy.

ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson would be a disastrous Secretary of State for our climate and our country. As chief of the largest fossil-fuel company in the world, Rex Tillerson made deals with Vladimir Putin and other dictators around the world to destroy our climate, while financing the Republican climate denial machine to protect Exxon's profits.

Tillerson has led Exxon's public denial of what its own researchers knew about climate change. Under Tillerson, Exxon co-wrote the Trans-Pacific Partnership — a dangerous trade deal that expands exports of fracked natural gas and oil, protecting the profits of polluters at the expense of workers and the environment. Overseeing a global army of mercenaries, Tillerson's Exxon has committed egregious human-rights abuses around the world.

Add your name to call on all Senators to strongly oppose Rex Tillerson’s confirmation. His support for anti-climate, anti-worker trade deals, his callous record of human-rights violations, and his lifetime of service to Exxon disqualify him from service.

On signing, you will receive an email with information on how to directly contact your Senators.
