Exxon Mobil now supports carbon tax
Old-Thinker News | Jan. 10, 2009
The media is hailing Exxon Mobil’s announcement in favor of carbon tax proposals as a shocking, unbelievable move. But is it really that surprising? Could well meaning environmentalists be in for a shock to find that a seemingly “grass roots” movement has from the beginning been initiated from the top down?
As the Calgary Herald reports, “Exxonmobil corp., the world’s largest crude oil refiner, supports taxing carbon dioxide as the most efficient way of curbing greenhouse gas emissions, its chief executive said.”
The announcement came from Rex Tillerson, CEO of Exxon Mobil, speaking at the Woodrow Wilson international center for scholars in Washington, which has served as a platform for discussing various globalist initiatives for many years. That Tillerson would make this announcement is interesting, due to the fact that the Rockefeller family, who built Standard Oil, recently identified him as “resistant” to “…take the threat of global warming more seriously”. Are we to accept this story? Was there any real resistance in the first place?
