LOS ANGELES, CA – Aug. 22nd – PRNewswire — In response to the oil companies’ lawsuit against Proposition 87 filed today, The California Clean Energy Initiative issued this offer of settlement.
Please note this settlement offer was sent to ExxonMobil, Chevron, Shell and Occidental Petroleum, which are bankrolling the anti-87 campaign.
Dear Oil Company Executive:
We are writing to offer settlement of the lawsuit your agents filed against The California Clean Energy Initiative regarding the use of certain Web addresses. We will initially turn over to you the Web addresses in question provided you and your agents agree with our terms, which are as follows:
– StopÂ basingÂ yourÂ campaignÂ againstÂ PropositionÂ 87Â onÂ junkÂ scienceÂ and fiction.
– StopÂ usingÂ theÂ nameÂ “CaliforniansÂ AgainstÂ HigherÂ Taxes”Â andÂ insteadÂ use oneÂ reflectingÂ thatÂ theÂ campaignÂ againstÂ PropositionÂ 87Â isÂ bankrolledbyÂ Chevron,Â Shell,Â ExxonÂ Mobil,Â Occidental andÂ otherÂ oilÂ companies.
-PutÂ theÂ oilÂ companiesÂ frontÂ andÂ centerÂ inÂ yourÂ advertising,Â insteadÂ of hidingÂ behindÂ frontÂ peopleÂ andÂ concealingÂ theÂ trueÂ backersÂ of the campaign against PropositionÂ 87:Â Chevron,Â Shell,Â ExxonÂ Mobil,Â OccidentalÂ andÂ otherÂ oil companies.Â
AsÂ aÂ gestureÂ ofÂ goodÂ faithÂ andÂ toÂ truthÂ inÂ advertising,Â weÂ haveÂ redesignedÂ whatÂ peopleÂ seeÂ whenÂ theyÂ visitÂ theÂ WebÂ addresses mentionedÂ inÂ yourÂ suit.Â Â YouÂ mayÂ seeÂ theÂ redesignÂ at http://www.noon87.com.
WeÂ thankÂ youÂ forÂ yourÂ promptÂ attentionÂ toÂ thisÂ matter.
