ExxonMobil is a great and historic company. More importantly, it sells a great product. There is no question about that.
But ExxonMobil’s management? Well… that’s a different story.
Since 2006, when Rex Tillerson became CEO, ExxonMobil has been supporting if not promoting climate alarmism. Tillerson hoped to score political correctness points and to gain competitive advantage via regulation, which favors big companies over small ones. Climate could also be used to advantage against the coal industry.
Current CEO Darren Woods, who took over from Tillerson in 2017, has not backed off promoting climate alarmism, despite the election of climate skeptic President Trump and his policies to unleash the American energy sector.
The question to be addressed here is: Does ExxonMobil CEO Darren Woods’ promotion of climate alarmism break the law?
