« "Republican" Big Oil? | Main | An Excellent Talk On Global Warming... »

May 26, 2008


Choke, the rub here is that ExxonMobil has funded 43 groups that seek to disprove global warming. It looks very much like what Big Tobacco did 40 years ago. Things are changing. Even ExxonMobil believes global warming is occurring. Following is a quote from Kenneth P. Cohen, ExxonMobil VP Public Affairs:

"the global ecosystem is showing signs of warming, particularly in polar areas" and "the appropriate debate isn't on whether the climate is changing but rather should be on what we should be doing about it."

Then Mr. Cohen mis-spoke. Certainly warming and attendant ice melting is taking place in the arctic circle. Alternatively, cooling and thickening is taking place in the antarctic. Is there anthropogenic warming? You bet. Concrete and pavement via reflection and surface rather than atmospheric temps. Regulating carbon doesn't affect this one whit.
