Douglas A. Grandt P. O. Box 1582 El Dorado, CA 95623 January 23, 2013 Mr. Rex W.

Tillerson CEO & Board Chairman Exxon Mobil Corporation 5959 Las Colinas Boulevard Irving, Texas 75039 Re: The Presidency, Rex Tillerson, and Charles Grant Dear Mr. Tillerson, Monday, President Obama put the issue of climate change at the top of his priorities:
We, the people, still believe that our obligations as Americans are not just to ourselves, but to all posterity. We will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations. Some may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science, but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires, and crippling drought, and more powerful storms. The path towards sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult. But American cannot resist this transition. We must lead it. We cannot cede to other nations the technology that will power new jobs and new industries. We must claim its promise. That’s how we will maintain our economic vitality and our national treasure, our forests and waterways, our crop lands and snow capped peaks. That is how we will preserve our planet, commanded to our care by God. That’s what will lend meaning to the creed our fathers once declared.

Now, it is up to US to make it happen ... we will help! Please lead US as Charles Grant did -- emulate him ( • • • • Call upon your colleagues in the energy sector to join you with bold courage Begin scheduling the retirement and dismantling of the fossil fuel infrastructure Shift investments from carbon energy infrastructure to carbon-free technology Compel Congress to enact a revenue-neutral carbon fee with rebates to all of US
