Its April Fool’s Day, and Congress is giving us a chance to have some fun while taking a serious look at the impact of Big Oil. Oil Change International will be watching the hearing closely, and we hope you can watch it with us!
Rep. Ed Markey (D-Mass), who chairs the Energy Independence and Global Warming Committee, is calling in top executives from the five largest oil companies in the world: ExxonMobil, Chevron, BP, Shell and Conoco. Markey is asking these companies to answer for their world record profits while gas prices squeeze the working class, climate change proceeds and energy independence recedes.

We’ll watch the hearing together online while we chat about it and share with you commentary and facts about the attendees. You can submit questions and comments to us, and you get a chance to talk online with fellow friends of Oil Change.

As the Vice President of Exxon gets grilled by Congress, we can turn to our Follow the Oil Money on-line research tool to find out how much money Exxon has given to Congress. We can find out how Members of the Select Committee voted on the Iraq War and key energy bills, and how they compare to the rest of the Congress.

So join us today, April 1, at 12pm EST to watch the hearing and participate in our live blog chat.
