President Barack Obama The White House 1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW Washington, D.C. 20500 Mr. Rex W. Tillerson Exxon Mobil Corporation 5959 Las Colinas Blvd. Irving, Texas 75039 Re: Opponents of fracking legislation pack the Illinois Capitol - Day 4 Dear President Obama and Mr. Tillerson, Over 20 people sat-in at the governor’s office in Illinois in opposition to fracking -- now Day 4. Masses opposed a bill allowing horizontal hydraulic fracturing -- but it passed unanimously. Please make sure that the local authorities respect and protect protesters rights to free speech and let there be no repeat of Kent State massacre. Please respect and protect the lives of all who speak out today and in the weeks and months to come. FearlessSummer and Summer Heat are two well publicized campaigns that will be getting a lot of young and old people out into the public eye as the climate movement gathers the momentum to influence you and the Congress to act appropriately. You must begin to reduce CO2 or face us with blood on your hands. If you dare continue to expand carbon infrastructure and unconventional production techniques, you are morally corrupt. We must quickly begin to abandon fossil fuels. Fossil fuel expansion is just plain wrong Leave the tarsands in the ground Abandon the Keystone XL Create your legacy!

Barack, we want . . . Clean energy! Carbon-free! Carbon fee Rebate to me Retire the refineries
