Exxon Exec “Embarrassed”

July 1, 2021

Exxon Exec expresses regret after telling truth on camera.

Raw Story:

In a statement, McCoy said he was “deeply embarrassed” by his caught-on-camera comments.

“My statements clearly do not represent ExxonMobil’s positions on important public policy issues. While some of my comments were taken out of context, there is no excuse for what I said or how I said it.”

Channel 4 promises more to come.

BTW, Channel 4 also responsible for one of the most reprehensible acts of climate denial, “The Great Global Warming Swindle” from 2007.

So they still have a lot of work to do.

    Is there anyone in the world who believes that, besides those who if an oil corporation said they were divesting their oil business and going into cupcakes, would believe it? The ludicrosity of the theater these criminals are performing just keeps getting more and more and more extreme.

    “It was all legal.
    And I was only following orders.”
    The revelations here are things everyone who’s paying attention has known for years, and the frequent denials by all the major players (Exxon, Koch, API, the Republicans, the rail industry, the Farm Bureau, the whole jackalpack of Right wing “Economic” Lie Factories, (RELF!) and too many others to keep track of) that they’re involved in lying about climate may finally be recognized as the crimes against humanity and the rest of nature they are.

    “…straight from the horse’s mouth.”
    I’m thinking more about the other end of the animal. The stripping away of Manchin’s constant stream of horseshit about him being a “moderate” and the breaking open of what has been a solid crust of sophistry about a carbon price may actually lead somewhere.

    I’m shocked, shocked to learn that Exxon cast doubt upon the science, instigated Astroturf activism and influenced politicians!
