The Lesser Evil

Grist points to this handy chart ranking gas companies according to their environmental and human rights records. As expected, Exxon/Mobil and Chevron/Texaco are at the bottom. I'd been avoiding them for some time now based on some less systematic research (though I did fill up at Mobil today, because I was nearly out of gas and had no idea what other stations I would encounter in rural Vermont. So of course a few miles down the road there was a Sunoco.). It was a bit of a surprise to find Sunoco so clearly at the top of the list (I'd heard nothing either good or bad about them), beating even BP/Amoco, though perhaps something has changed since 2001. Unfortunately there are some companies missing -- notably Hess, where I usually fill up in Worcester, and Gulf, which is my main option in Bridgewater.
