Hey, Alaska, Exxon’s Just Not That Into You

The legislative session for Alaska, only lasting 90 days, has been fierce this year. On deck, Governor Sean Parnell’s $5.5 Billion dollar giveaway to Big Oil – SB21 – with nothing in return for the citizens of Alaska. During a hearing in front of the House Resources Committee, Exxon representative Dan Seckers explained to Representatives what the fundamental problem was for his company.

Paraphrased, they just aren’t that into us unless we make ourselves more attractive. His testimony makes us sound like we need to get a relationship counselor and gym membership to be able to woo the company that once abused us to just come back.

  1. Thank goodness. When they were “in to us” life was hell. Exxon should go to India and mine in the garbage slums. They are the Japanese whalers of their industry.
