Mr. Rex Tillerson ExxonMobil Corporation 5959 Las Colinas Boulevard Irving, Texas 75039 Re: Now is the time to choose your legacy Dear Rex, A friend wrote a simple truth that I feel compelled to share with you. I feel the urgency.

My mother used to tell me “We go into the future in the stories our children and grandchildren tell about us.”

Tipping points are upon us, irreversibly flipping from life-supporting state to life-degrading state. We have nearly run out of time -- some believe we have already passed critical thresholds. What do you believe and how do you view your responsibility, given the plausible outcomes? Will you continue to expand the carbon fuel infrastructure of death, or begin to dismantle it? It’s your time. Begin the transition. Switch to renewables. I hope you can find it in your heart to choose life now.
