Exxon cuts ties to global warming skeptics

Oil major Exxon Mobil Corp. is engaging in industry talks on possible U.S. greenhouse gas emissions regulations and has stopped funding groups skeptical of global warming claims — moves that some say could indicate a change in stance from the long-time foe of limits on heat-trapping gases.


This is an interesting development...

I'm all for Exxon jumping on the "green" bandwagon, question is what will happen inside growing economies like China and India, which won't do much about the global warming until it's too late...

Me thinks this is just more sulferous smoke from Exxon's rearend in order to make the company image look better. I'll call it the big kitty fakeover-makeover. The bottom line is still profits before people and this PR cloud doesn't remove the tiger's stripes.

Exxon Mobil reportedly admits PR problem on global warming
However, Chairman and Chief Executive Rex Tillerson made clear to a select group of Wall Street fund managers and analysts that the oil company wouldn't be changing its position on global warming, it would just try and explain it better, the newspaper says.

So does this mean they will just be changing how they report their taxes.
Will they be funneling money into something else that will be funneling money into GW skeptics?

I love ExxonMobil and its quest to integrate companies into Standard Oil, which is the way it should be. CO2 emmissions are a joke and is the only path for a pathetic government take over of the oil, energy and chemicals industry which will only impede the growth, clout and number of small companies. This utlimately impedes growth and raises prices through the roof.

To love a criminal corporation is to become a criminal.

Too much black and white propaganda koolaid is bad for free thinking or liberty.

Lock me up and throw away the key with nothing more than time to grind on through the day cracking the crude to get to the real gold. About 400 degrees in here and the walls caving in, like no other. God damn diesels need their fuel. How are you going to supply that need? Millions of gallons of fuels per day: supply it, make it cheap, on time and do that everyday untill the day you die.

Just like they normally do, minus the conartists, thieves, crooks, adled brain cheerleaders or company chumps that are bent on making a quick buck that burdens the future generations.

Pay now, pay much more later or die off...
