Appeal: Stop “green” Toyota from killing the US climate change bill


Toyota is the world’s largest car maker. Its Prius is the definitive green vehicle. But disturbingly, Toyota is not as green as its reputation. In the US, it is one of the lobbies attempting to kill the US senate bill on climate change.

Please read this and then spend a moment of your online time to send a message to Toyota please.

From saveourenvironment.org:

Tell Toyota: Stop Blocking Clean Energy!

The Chamber of Commerce is using the member dues of companies like Toyota to kill the clean energy bill.

Other companies have quit the Chamber in protest, but Toyota refuses to act.

Our goal is 20,000 petition signers by October 30th.

Add your name now to ensure your letter gets hand-delivered to Toyota’s US headquarters!

There are only a few days left to add your name before saveourenvironment.org deliver the letters to Toyota’s US Headquarters in New York City.

This is a message you can send to friends concerned with the environment:

Of all the companies that might help defeat the Senate climate bill, I never thought it would be the maker of the Prius hybrid!

But it’s true. Toyota is helping fund a campaign to block clean energy, and I need your help to stop them. Click here to get the story:

Here’s the deal… Toyota is a prominent member of the Chamber of Commerce which has launched a massive campaign to kill the new climate change bill. The Chamber’s campaign is funded by its members – including Toyota.

As one of the most powerful lobbies in Washington, the Chamber of Commerce’s war on the climate change bill poses a very real threat to the future of our planet.

The good news is that many companies (including Apple, GE, PG&E, Nike and Levi Strauss & Company) have already resigned from the Chamber in protest. But so far Toyota has refused to join them.

Personally, I find it shocking that a company that has made millions on their reputation as a leader in green technology would so brazenly oppose climate change legislation.

That’s why I just signed a petition urging Toyota to put its money where its mouth is and quit the Chamber of Commerce now.

It would mean a lot to me if you’d consider adding your name as well. Will you check it out?
