More on Exxon Revelations

September 24, 2015

Interview with Neela Banerjee, lead reporter on the bombshell series of revelations from Inside Climate News, – what Exxon knew about climate change, and when they knew it.

The oil company was actually doing cutting edge research in the late 70s and early 80s, working with world class organizations like Columbia University and Scripps Institute of Oceanography – and made projections very much in line with the very best science of the day – in fact astoundingly accurate as to what we are observing today.

Also interviewed is former Exxon scientist Ed Garvey, who conducted CO2 measurements from oceangoing oil tankers in the early days of the program.

  1. Reblogged this on Move for Change and the Brooklyn Culture Jam and commented:
    A Democracy NOW interview with a reporter from Inside Climate Change who broke the story about Exxon’s knowledge of Climate warming back in the late 1970s. Worth 13 minutes of your time.


  2. A great story unfolding and thank you for the DN! link. reblogged (I had also written about Exxon and Shell’s denial of inside information last week). A rhetorical question: How does anybody in the denial business refute Exxon? I’m sure they will, but will anybody in MSM keep a straight face take the GOP clown car riders seriously on this anymore?

    Breaking: Shell to cease further exploration in Alaska

    Royal Dutch Shell Plc (RDSa.L) said it would cease exploration activity in offshore Alaska for the “foreseeable future” and take a writedown of about $4.1 billion after failing to find enough oil in the region.

    The company said it did not find sufficient amounts of oil and gas in the Burger J well, located in the Chukchi Sea about 150 miles from Barrow, to warrant further exploration.

    The decision to stop exploration reflects the project’s high costs and the unpredictable federal regulatory environment in offshore Alaska along with the Burger J well results, the company said.

    Shell said its Alaskan position is valued at about $3 billion with a further $1.1 billion in future contractual commitments.
