Why should VW get all the love? There are great stories of dodgy corporate behavior ongoing, all around us and throughout history. In these pages, let us lovingly detail some of the more entertaining stories. Here's a truly fun one: Exxon's Own Research Confirmed Fossil Fuels' Role in Global Warming Decades Ago http://insideclimatenews.org/news/1...confirmed-fossil-fuels-role-in-global-warming The year is 1977. Exxon's scientists conclude that "carbon dioxide from the world's use of fossil fuels would warm the planet and could eventually endanger humanity." Further research suggested "a doubling of the carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration in the atmosphere would increase average global temperatures by 2 to 3 degrees Celsius (4 to 5 degrees Fahrenheit), and as much as 10 degrees Celsius (18 degrees Fahrenheit) at the poles." The kicker: "Present thinking," [Exxon scientist James Black] wrote in the 1978 summary, "holds that man has a time window of five to ten years before the need for hard decisions regarding changes in energy strategies might become critical." Cut to 1990. Exxon spins up its PR, lobbying and research muscle "behind efforts to manufacture doubt about the reality of global warming its own scientists had once confirmed. It lobbied to block federal and international action to control greenhouse gas emissions. It helped to erect a vast edifice of misinformation that stands to this day." Hard decisions needed to be made. Exxon pioneered in building the sociopolitical infrastructure to keep those decisions from being made. Share your own greatest hits list!
