'This next song goes out to the Exxon Corporation'
- Michael Stipe introducing 'I Can Turn You Inside Out' on the Green tour, circa 1989.
I had heard that ExxonMobil hadn't paid up on their Exxon Valdez fines.
Well, that's partially true. The Wikipedia article is a good place to start.
They cleaned up and paid a lot of restitution within the first year.
But there was criticism that they didn't act fast enough.
And they still haven't paid 4.5-5 billion dollars in damages. It's under appeal.
What do you think? Has Exxon done their duty? Ever think twice about buying at Exxon?
