Exxon meets with global warming groups

Exxon-Mobil has funded global warming denial organizations with millions of dollars. They now say they’ve cut of the funding and might be willing to change their position on global warming. Wow, maybe next year they’ll decide the world isn’t flat too.

The bilious public relations gas emitted by Exxon PR spin is nearly as toxic as the greenhouse gases they so happily produce. They’ve consistently been obnoxious and deceptive about global warming. So, while other large US corporations are already working on remediating global warming, Exxon still can’t bring themselves to admit the obvious truth.

Who cares. Leave them to the scrap heap of history. They don’t get it and they never will. And even if they said they did, how could they be trusted? In a few years they will be among the most loathed and detested entities on the planet after it’s become obvious to all just how how treacherous and duplicituous they were. With any luck, their leaders will be indicted, in prison, or social pariahs. Extreme words? I don’t think so.

Reversing global warming is about to get real serious real fast and there will be no mercy for those who deliberately blocked progress; not when your land is slowly going underwater, or the rains aren’t coming, or monster storms are becoming routine. Nope, people in circumstances like those will not be disposed at all kindly towards a corporation that for years did everything they could to block progress on global warming.

    Your little piece of writing amuses those of us whom are capable of logical and rational thought. The attempts of humor are so trite, I immediately question if you are actually being facetious. Unfortunately, your rant falls in line with most liberals, and my amusement turns to disappointment when I realize your not joking.

    Please inform us of the “obvious truth” you speak of.
    Please enlighten us on how a warming trend can be, without a doubt, caused by mankind.
    Have you contemplated the ramification of your demands should this be a purely natural occurrence?

    I’m sure our philosophical differences will never allow us to agree on the way problems should be corrected. I’m okay with that. Debate is good thing. My concern with your piece is the venom which you direct at people that simply hold a different opinion than yours. Now, I’m assuming you envision Exxon brass knowingly destroying the earth in exchange for record breaking profits, but I’m not sure you are fully aware of what Exxon actually does.

    If I may, I would like to use your words in the way I see it. Should the United States of America win the war in Iraq, and Global warming be proven to be a natural occurrence, You and yours will be “the most loathed and detested entities on the planet after it’s become obvious to all just how how treacherous and duplicitous they(you) were.”

    As someone who is so obviously capable of logical and rational thought, I was wondering if you could enlighten us as to why…

    Scientists and economists have been offered $10,000 each by a lobby group funded by one of the world’s largest oil companies to undermine a major climate change report due to be published today.

    Letters sent by the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), an ExxonMobil-funded thinktank with close links to the Bush administration, offered the payments for articles that emphasise the shortcomings of a report from the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

    Could it be that bribery is the only option left to such a morally bankrupt corporation and the administration that supports it? I mean surely there would be no need to bribe scientists to come up with more desirable findings if you, ExxonMobil and the Idiot in Chief were so right and the rest of the planet so wrong.

    Should the United States of America win the war in Iraq, and Global warming be proven to be a natural occurrence…

    *ROTFL* Oh my aching sides. Wingnuttery at it’s best. You don’t still seriously thing you’re going to win that war do you? By now even Barney and Laura must be having doubts. You say “Debate is good thing”. I agree but the Republicans certainly don’t.
