Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson tells it like it is
It is rare to see an oil executive publicly taking on his radical environmental adversaries.
... Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson came under predictable attack at the company’s annual meeting in Dallas this week from climate radicals and the Catholic Church, in the form of a friar and a nun, but his responses were conspicuously free of the kind of climate apologetics issued last week by Suncor’s Steve Williams.
... Tillerson said his company was not going to “fake” excessive concern for a matter on which the science was still highly uncertain.
...He didn’t “deny” the slight warning trend of the past century (which has stopped for most of the past two decades), but he pointedly noted that climate models “just aren’t that good.”
... He also expressed unfashionable faith in human ability to adapt ... “Mankind has this enormous capacity to deal with adversity,” said Tillerson. “Those solutions will present themselves as the realities become clear.”
... One of the most predictable warm up acts for Paris is due to trot into the arena shortly in the form of a Papal Encyclical on climate. ... Exxon in fact reportedly sent a delegation to the Vatican recently, but it didn’t go to genuflect before climate religion
... Among the paths of appeasement that Exxon Mobil has refused to walk down are those of renewable energy.Truly a breath of fresh air.
Rex Tillerson for global CEO of the decade!
