[share] "What EXXON knew about climate change."

Originally posted by siliconshaman at What EXXON knew about climate change.
EXXON knew about climate change, in 1977.

They substantially knew what would happen, what their product would do and had already concluded that the world need to reduce it's oil consumption with in five to ten years...

and instead they deliberately delayed any action, funded rabid denial groups and essentially doomed the planet to a future adversely affected by climate change, so they could continue to make a profit for a few more years.

Can you charge a company with corporate genocide?

How about an entire industry? Because without a doubt the rest of the companies knew as well, if not right away then pretty quickly afterwards..and they did collude with this.
