“Imagine Michael Moore with humility. Tom Jackson goes on a personal quest to find out more about climate change and the huge forces that are blocking imperative change. Jackson exposes the most dangerous practice of our time: record profits at ANY cost.”
– Norman Solomon, Public Accuracy

“Out of Balance: ExxonMobil’s Impact on Climate Change” shows the influence that the largest company in the world has on governments, the media and citizens and what can be done about global warming. While the Earth’s climate is pushed further out of balance by increasing use of fossil fuels, ExxonMobil continues to assert undue influence around the world—making record profits while ignoring climate science for which there has been overwhelming consensus for over ten years.

Tim Greeff

“Out of Balance” does not just critique ExxonMobil, it also offers challenging, large-scale ideas for the global social changes that must take place if there’s any chance of having a livable planet for future generations.

One thought on “Out of Balance: ExxonMobil’s Impact on Climate Change

  1. I was googeling for ocean energy and came across your Out of Balance: ExxonMobil’s Impact on Climate Change | Joe Public Films page. My greatest worry is energy independence, unless we stop using polluting fossil fuels the planet is going to be in serious trouble.
    We are amazed people are not looking at using more renewables like Ocean Power like CROWD ENERGY. If we dont solve this problem now its going to get worse.
    Have a nice day, Casilla
