Good Day World!
No matter where you live on this planet, you’ve been affected (one way or another) by the misdeeds of Exxon.
In the last three weeks, two separate teams of journalists—the Pulitzer-prize winning reporters at the website Inside Climate News and another crew composed of Los Angeles Times veterans and up-and-comers at the Columbia Journalism School—have begun publishing the results of a pair of independent investigations into ExxonMobil.
Though they draw on completely different archives, leaked documents and interviews with ex-employees, they reach the same damning conclusion:
Exxon knew all that there was to know about climate change decades ago and instead of alerting the rest of us denied the science and obstructed the politics of global warming.
I don’t know how that makes you feel, but it angers me. Monumental greed has led to nearly irreversible climate damage.
Exxon management knew what was happening and even circulated internal memos admitting that “human-induced climate change” was taking it’s toll on the planet.
I have one question for all the governments in the world…
When are you going to put Exxon out of business and try all of it’s mangement team for crimes against humanity?
Time for me to walk on down the road…
