Here’s Bill McKibben protesting at a local gas station in Vermont — calling attention to the growing scandal around Exxon Mobil. Recent reporting reveals that climate studies commissioned by ExxonMobil in the early 1980s could have changed the course of human events — if Exxon hadn’t used them for internal profit-related purposes while publicly continuing to deny the facts. I’m not going to try to paraphrase. Please read Bill’s post.
We all need to follow this story and make sure it gets the attention from fund managers and investors that it needs. Coal first, Exxon second…not just baby steps toward full fossil fuel divestment!
