I am near speechless. An Exxon official admitting, on camera, how the company works to prevent effective climate action by using third party “whipping boys” so no one knows it’s them. These recordings should be played on every TV station in the world. channel4.com/news/revealed-e…

“Did we aggressively fight against some of the science? Yes. Did we join some of these shadow groups to work against some of the early efforts? Yes. … We were looking out for our investments. We were looking out for our shareholders.” What about the fucking planet?

In the story, Exxon does not deny the bulk of the lobbyist’s claims. Instead, it attacks @GreenpeaceUK directly and defends its climate policy delay tactics, saying nothing they’re doing is illegal. channel4.com/news/revealed-e…

This is real, from-the-horses-mouth-proof of Exxon’s deception and delay tactics, ones they’ve worked hard to deny. It should move the needle on public opinion of the company. It’s also the product of @UE, a project of @GreenpeaceUK (not GP USA). channel4.com/news/revealed-e…
