not a Big Surprise -

But turns out Exxon knew exactly what they were doing all along.

"Exxon's Own Research Confirmed Fossil Fuels' Role in Global Warming Decades Ago

Top Exxon execs were warned of possible catastrophe from greenhouse effect, BY THEIR OWN SCIENTISTS, then led efforts to block solutions.

Remind you of the Big Tobacco/Cancer story at all? It should. Exxon hired some of the same spinmeisters that Big Tobacco used for years. Our library still carries some of their phony books. And Fred Singer is certainly one of their favorite hacks. Guy even resorts to trying to whitewash his wiki page. Google his lawsuit against wikipedia. It's hilarious!

Meanwhile, unlike Exxon's decades of flat-out lying, Shell Oil finally fessed up and is now asking for a sensible carbon tax to slow the rate of global warming.

“Ben van Beurden, the chief executive of Shell, has endorsed warnings that the world’s fossil fuel reserves cannot be burned unless some way is found to capture their carbon emissions.” This follows a call from six oil and gas companies (Shell included) to put a price on carbon.

Meanwhile, 2014 was the hottest year in modern recorded history. And 2015 already looks to be much hotter than 2014.

Like Big Tobacco's lie about not causing cancer, the jig is almost up for fossil fuels. Burning them creates global warming - PERIOD.
