the problem boycotting certain companies is you are helping more oil companies grow, which can be good. but not in the case of Esso.
Shell and Petro Can. are investing millions into "green energy"
(windmills, solar paneling etc...) Esso on the other hand is not investing a penny, they also helped fund Pres. Bush's campaign.
if anyone gets a chance check out www.stopesso.com
(im pretty sure thats the address)
cool info on it. i started getting interested cos my dads an oil worker.
