Subject: ExxonMobil & Chevron earnings are the new canary in the coal mine (Cantwell ENR Chief)
Date: February 5, 2018 at 2:42 PM
To: David Poyer (Senate ENR Ctee-D) david_poyer@energy.senate.gov

Dear Ranking Member Maria Cantwell,


.
Defend and protect Americans. Proclaim W.E.C.A.R.E. for World Energy Crisis Aversion & Readiness Endgame.
Start by calling oil and gas company CEOs and members of Boards of Directors to testify how they will act responsibly in
the Public and National Interest in the face of debt default, insolvency and bankruptcy which requires that they exercise
fiduciary duty. I believe these two requirements are opposing concepts and that their conflict will undermine American
Society unless dealt with in transparent, frank and honest dialogue well in advance of the looming imminent crises.
.
Fourth Quarter earnings were reported Friday. American’s greatest national resources for petroleum (ExxonMobil,
Chevron and their ilk) are the foundation of ENR’s “Energy & Natural Resources Act (S.1460). Earnings falling below
expectations and share value taking a 6% hit Friday do not speak well for the stability of S.1460 - Energy & Natural
Resources Act of 2017 which is business as usual, oil & gas biased, lacking innovation, and doomed to fail.
.
Given the volatile commodity markets for oil and gas, we are nowhere near true energy independence or dominance.
Given the financial fragility of the oil and gas drilling, production, refining and transportation, a killer crisis is imminent.
Given the geopolitical tensions around the world, any surprise flutter of a butterfly wing could bring on disruption.
.
Are you prepared for the eventuality that declining oil prices will put even the mightiest oil company into bankruptcy?
Are you prepared for the eventuality that spiking oil prices will detrimentally impact our supply chains and economy?
Are you prepared for the resulting decline in the financial and equity markets when traders panic and bale out?
Are you prepared for the complete erosion of your personal wealth—every American’s life savings and pension?
.
You will be culpable when any disruption of the supply of oil and gas happens for reasons you have not addressed!
You have a personal responsibility to demand that Senate and ENR Leadership openly investigate downside risks.
You have a constitutional obligation to act for Americans’ wellbeing—so-called Public Interest and National Interest.
What have you done recently to fulfill your responsibility and obligation, exhibiting truly non-partisan behavior?
..
Sincerely yours,
Doug Grandt
Putney, VT

P.S. Please retract Senate Bill S.1460, which in no way addresses the issues enumerated herein.
