I remember when climate skeptics made a Walmart CEO pee in his pants.
True story. At the first Wall Street Journal Eco-Nomics conference (circa 2006), climate skeptics literally kept then Walmart CEO Lee Scott up at night.
At the opening dinner of the conference, a small group of climate skeptics (amid a heavy majority of warmists and rentseekers) embarrassed GE CEO Jeff Immelt during a Q&A session. We peppered Immelt with questions about GE’s embrace of warmism. The ill-prepared, thin-skinned Immelt essentially imploded under the our pressure. He looked really bad.
The next day I was backstage getting ready for my panel when one of the Wall Street Journal hosts came up to me and said that Walmart CEO Lee Scott had related to him that morning that he couldn’t sleep after watching Immelt get pummeled by skeptics.
So, new Walmart CEO, bring it on.
