Thankfully, the anti-science propaganda campaign surrounding man-made climate change seems to have lost some of its effect.

Are you seeing storm clouds on the horizon? Two recent studies suggest that the latest anti-science campaign is following its forerunners--the propaganda campaigns attempting to refute science that tobacco causes cancer, that CFC's caused the hole in the ozone layer, and so on—into oblivion. Global warming denial seems to have climbed to a peak in 2010, and global warming acceptance is now climbing. This bodes well for rational public policy.

If they lied to the public to protect their profits, the public will demand punishment. If not, Exxon will be vindicated.

Earlier this week, Exxon was served with a subpoena demanding at least a decade’s worth of financial records relating to Exxon’s own climate research and its relationship with outside activist groups that have opposed U.S. entry into the Kyoto protocols and criticized arguments for certain regulations aimed at reducing carbon dioxide emissions. This is a flat-out campaign aimed at punishing a corporation for having a policy disagreement with Democrats

Hmmm and you say they are singing from Govt hymnals now? odd

“Exxon, for its part, told its shareholders on March 30 . . .”

Since March 30, 2016 is two weeks in the future, this information may be out of date. We don’t know, since the poster didn’t reveal his source. Two conclusions are possible:

1. Between the past when Exxon “told its shareholders” and yesterday’s announcement, the company changed its policy, which is compatible with what I wrote.

Or 2. Exxon-Mobile knows that “everyone -- including oil and gas companies -- should be engaged in meaningful action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” but nevertheless “plans to exploit all of its remaining oil and gas reserves.” Before we evaluate this apparent discrepancy, the poster should tell us what he means by “exploit.” Does that mean increasing CO2 emissions without regard to the acknowledged risks?

Please tell us when Exxon talked to their shareholders and what you mean by “exploit.”

The truth is slightly different than Harrys propoganda

Instead, the company plans to exploit all of its remaining oil and gas reserves, as well as new discoveries, through 2040.

Exxon, for its part, told its shareholders on March 30 that the company does not think that policies to address manmade global warming constitute a risk to the company’s profitability, because global policy makers are not going to enact strict emissions limits before 2040.

Exxon-Mobil has apparently surrendered in the propaganda war against the huge body of climate research in support of global warming. The company’s vice president of public and government affairs, Suzanne McCarron writes:

“ExxonMobil recognizes the risks posed by climate change. We believe that everyone -- including oil and gas companies -- should be engaged in meaningful action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.”

Random21 - YEP! According to recent reports that disappearance of the Earth's ice caps isn't entirely going according to Al Gore's predictions.

After the arise of a Marco Rubio presidency, Al Gore will become but a footnote.
