What Exxon knew about climate change: Let’s get the facts

-long before Exxon began its campaign of denial – as far back as late 1970s – the company employed its own in-house climate scientists to do sophisticated analysis of the issue.. ..These scientists understood that climate change is real and carefully modeled its likely impacts…Next, they reportedly briefed Exxon’s top executives, who factored climate change into their business decisions – only to then reverse course…It’s one thing for a company to offer its perspective on matters of global importance. It’s quite another for a company to deploy its resources to intentionally mislead the public and thwart collective action when its own scientists have warned of terrible consequences. And that’s what Exxon Mobil is accused of.
