In case you missed it, we just launched our very, very first national TV ad campaign yesterday, with a very direct title: Exxon Hates Your Children. How big a deal has it made already? We've been featured in the Huffington Post, Fox News, Grist, The Hill and are about to have a representative appear on Fox Business tonight. Pretty cool stuff!

If you can take 2 minutes to watch and support the campaign, we'd be enormously appreciative. I've attached our email from yesterday in case you missed it.

Thanks.

They just plain do, that's why they're dooming living and future generations to a world torn apart by climate chaos. And as lawmakers in DC seriously consider throwing out the New Deal while keeping Big Oil's $10 Billion annual subsidy going strong, it's time to call them out on it..

That's why we have made our first ever TV ad saying just that - and we want you to get it broadcast across America.

Watch. Tell five friends. Help us get it on the air.

Share it on Facebook. Or let your friends know about it on Twitter. Finally, consider submitting our video to Reddit.

We couldn't be more proud to join with Oil Change International in making and putting this ad on the air. Now we just need you to help us make it real.

Thanks for everything you do to make this movement alive, every single day.

Sincerely,

John Sellers and the whole Other 98% Team

They really don't want you to know how much they hate your children.

PLEASE SHARE CIRCULATE FORWARD

Exxon is afraid, and here's why: our first ever national TV ad, Exxon Hates Your Children, is finally hitting the air, starting tonight. It's one of the very first ever truly crowdfunded, truly national political TV ads, with over 125,000 views online already - and Exxon knows that it's because people have had it with Big Oil, Gas & Coal's destruction of our children's future.

Now we need to prove their fears correct - we need to make the ad such a big hit that it sends a shockwave through our politics. Here's how you can make Exxon Hates Your Children a national gamechanger:

Let all your friends know they should watch it, on TV or online, by tweeting it out and sharing it on Facebook.

Sign our public petition to Congress and Exxon, telling them that the first thing thrown out of our budget ought to be corporate welfare for Big Oil.

Pledge to watch the ad, then let all your friends know to do the same.

Help us get Exxon Hates Your Children on the air where you live.

Thanks for all you do to make this movement real.

Sincerely,

John Sellers, The Other 98%

Love this commercial.

I wonder if this will get a firestorm reaction of attacks from fossil fuel.

In other news tonight NBC showed the light-up celebration of the newly legal smokers in Seattle.

Someone don't like the commercial I posted? To shy to leave a comment? That is OK - you Fossil Fuel shills have a tough time being believable in the 1st place.

Great production values. Would connect with many Americans. Should go viral.

[-] -2 points by DKAtoday (28422) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

I hope - It is going on the air - I hope a lot of people see it on their TV.

[-] 1 points by therising (6643) 1 year ago

Any idea what networks (mainstream?) and times (peak viewing times?)? I don't have a tv but just trying to gauge how many Americans this might reach? Great news that fundraising is going well.

[-] 0 points by DKAtoday (28422) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Current air date and locations being covered - information is on the update I posted.

[-] 1 points by therising (6643) 1 year ago

Cool. Thanks.

[-] 0 points by DKAtoday (28422) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

No problem - I believe that they will be adding other locations depending on ability - but just the fact that it is gonna get - idiot box corpoRAT controlled MSM air time - is GR8 - a very limited start - but a very good start - it's an actual - START.

Love this commercial.

They really do hate the children and I really like the idea of naming hurricanes after them..........:)

Credit/blame where credit/blame is due. {:-])

[-] -1 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

I just gotta wonder if exxon will sue them if it gets on the air.

[-] -1 points by DKAtoday (28422) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

For what? Telling the truth? I would love to see them in court and opening the door for false advertizing look at what they put out on a regular basis.

[-] 0 points by shoozTroll (17632) 1 year ago

They may not see it that way, and they have like 10,000 lawyers on retainer.

I would love to see it air though...................................:)

The FLAKESnews and Limbaugh reactions would be worth it all by themselves.

As you type your response on a computer keyboard produced from oil byproducts. You folks really don't have a clue yet you continue unabated in your complete and total euphoric ignorance.

[-] -1 points by DKAtoday (28422) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

I would prefer hemp plastic - but then that is not an option that is currently available. You on the other hand seem to be ignorant of the problems ( multiple and severe ) of fossil fuel extraction and burning. Hey I thought you were leaving - I saw your good bye and got all misty eyed.

BTW - did they teach you ( in your southern(?) school ) about the great dino rodeos that used to happen?

[-] 0 points by texarkana (-1) 1 year ago

You're ignorant of the real world. You revel in your ignorance like a child. You can't be an adult and if you are you must be a Utopian,leftwing Ideologue who is sheltered from reality.

It truly must suck to be you.

[-] 0 points by DKAtoday (28422) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Gosh - do you chew lead and practice your spiel while looking in the mirror? Your fossil fuel hero's may have told you that lead was good for you - but - alas - that would just be another of their lies. I suppose you are not aware but I will ask anyway - did your indoctrination into the wonders of fossil fuel begin in pre-school?

[-] -1 points by texarkana (-1) 1 year ago

You are just as much a slave to oil,gas,coal and every other demonetized resource you rail against,...HA,...like you have a choice to use,abuse and pollute like the rest of us,sorry,you just don't. Stop fooling yourself and acting like you're somehow above it all. You're delusional. Oil isn't the problem Son, radical environmentalists are. You've been lied to and horse crapped on to boot.

[-] -1 points by DKAtoday (28422) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

No no no sorry - there are real alternatives to fossil fuel - and I and others are advocating for their use and the replacement of fossil fuel. Bang your head against the wall all you want - BUT - fossil fuel has got to go.

[-] 2 points by texarkana (-1) 1 year ago

"Advocate" till my cows come home Son but you ain't fixin to be free of using any of these resources in your lifetime unless of course you truly are a man of your convictions and set an example for everybody and find yourself a cave. Till then you are just whistling Dixie.

[-] -2 points by DKAtoday (28422) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Sorry your cows left home - did you abuse them? Did you know that Mn has reduced it's oil use by over 10%? Yeah - wind turbines - and not all that many of em yet. So - OH - I did tell you that you should not chew lead right? Anyway good night and may you have sweet dreams of the vanishing oil rigs.

[-] 2 points by texarkana (-1) 1 year ago

Did you know Son that wind mill farms kill more birds,bats and especially owls and our national bird the Bald Eagle.? How's that for pissin off your hombre's at PETA??

That's a ridiculous red herring. Your reaching, desperately. because you know you have nothing better to use against this future tech.

fossil fuel is destroying the planet!

Xfer all fossil/nuclear subs to greentech!

Mount a national mission to create 3 million win turbines in 1 year, and all our Coal & nuclear plants can be resigned.
