|Yes, I read the article re the Exxon indictment and followed the list of statements by Exxon officials and scientists over the years...interesting that they knew Climate Change was manmade caused in 1980.|
And then this statement by the Exxon exec who already in 2008 was aware of your kind of extremist fringe and junk science...
J. Stephen Simon, an Exxon Mobil Senior Vice President
Testifying before a Senate Judiciary Committee on May 21, 2008, Mr. Simon was pressed by Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, Democrat of Rhode Island, who suggested that fringe views on climate change were being endorsed and espoused by oil companies. Mr. Simon responded:
“In other words, that we are supporting junk science and trying to make people think that this is not an issue. I think all of us recognize it is an issue. It is how we deal with it – and I think we are dealing with it, and we are doing so in a responsible fashion.”
