  • Exxon Mobil TV Commercial, 'Carbon Capture' (like trees and all other plant life)

    iSpot ^ | 5/19/19
    While all plant life captures CO2, Exxon Mobil wonders if industrial plants could do the same. While the oil company says it's constantly working on ways to capture CO2, it wants plants to be more like plants.

    GEORGETOWN (Reuters) - Guyana’s parliament voted late on Friday in favor of a no-confidence motion in the government, triggering new elections in March in a surprise defeat for President David Granger as he seeks to develop the nation’s oil sector.

    After years of opposing efforts to fight climate change, Europe’s biggest oil and gas corporations have made a stunning about-face. Noticeably absent from the corporate push for a carbon price were U.S. oil behemoths Chevron and Exxon Mobil.

    Failed political consultant Liz Mair is crowd funding a political attack on billionaire presidential candidate Donald Trump and she’s getting noticed. But Mair’s past work as a paid shill of a Muslim dictatorship that jails journalists and activists should make us wonder about her motives, especially as the Middle East once more descends into chaos. Mair was paid $15,000 a month by Ilham Aliyev, the dictator of Azerbaijan, according to documents filed in accordance with the Foreign Registration Act (FARA).

    Three of the United States’ largest oil and natural gas companies are joining a major fossil fuel-backed international coalition to battle climate change. Exxon Mobil Corp., Chevron Corp. and Occidental Petroleum Corp. all announced that they’re joining the Oil and Gas Climate Initiative (OGCI) Thursday, in the lead-up to the major Climate Week event in New York City next week, where the group will have a meeting. The group was launched in 2014. Initially, United States-based companies avoided the initiative, and it was dominated by foreign companies like BP, Total and Royal Dutch Shell. “It will take the collective efforts...

    Sanity: Without question, President Obama and his administration were the biggest enemies of the fossil fuel industry in the history of our country. Never mind that fossil fuels (along with innovation) were responsible for transforming the United States into the world’s leading economic power. Obama was dead-set on destroying the industry in lieu of some ‘clean energy’ nirvana that is decades away from reality, given the pace of technological development in that industry.

    The Hill ^ | 08/03/18 | Timothy Cama
    The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has closed an investigation into oil giant Exxon Mobil Corp. without taking any action. The probe was opened in 2016 to examine how Exxon Mobil accounts for its oil and natural gas reserves and factors the costs of climate change into its operations, including whether it is truthful enough with shareholders about the financial risks of climate change and climate policies. Exxon Mobil provided a letter from the SEC Friday saying that the investigation had been closed with no action, but that such a notification was not an exoneration. The SEC doesn’t comment publicly...
  • Federal Judge Keeps Schneiderman and #ExxonKnew Campaign on Defense

    The judge believed the New York District Court was the appropriate venue to hear Exxon’s case because “a substantial part of the events or omissions giving rise to the claim occurred” in New York City at an infamous March 29, 2016 press conference with Al Gore. The judge gave credence to Exxon’s concerns that the AG investigations were politically motivated, pointing to the AGs’ meeting with #ExxonKnew activists ahead of their press conference and noting the AGs’ many appearances in the media discussing the case.

    A leaked memo obtained by the Daily Caller has suggested billionaire activist Tom Steyer was more deeply involved in the anti-Exxon campaign that was launched by New York’s Attorney General Eric Schneiderman back in 2015. The memo, which the Daily Caller cites in full, includes agenda items such as, “Weaken the political influence of the oil industry by leveraging the Exxon investigation by Inside Climate News and the New York Attorney General” and “Identify message and messengers to contrast climate denial and other oppositional activities of Exxon and other U.S. oil companies with the pro-Paris positioning of European companies and...

    The New York attorney general’s dark-side personal life was an open secret in Democratic Party circles. New York State attorney general Eric Schneiderman has resigned, just hours after it was reported that he had been accused of violent assaults on women he had dated. These allegations, which include threats that Schneiderman made to stalk and kill the women if they told on him, came as a shock—except to anyone who has followed his career in politics. Schneiderman’s louche ethics have been well known. You didn’t need an “in” at Albany watering holes; just reading the newspapers would have told you...

    Claiming he was just trying to free Josh Holt, a devout young Mormon from Utah held hostage by Venezuela's Maduro regime on phony charges, left-wing Illinois Democratic senator Dick Durbin isn't exactly credible about his real mission in his secret visit to Caracas this past week. Rep. Pete Sessions, a Dallas-based Republican, isn't exactly believable, either, given that he called his secret trip with Durbin "a peace mission" to Caracas last week.

    Energy giant Exxon Mobil announced plans Monday to spend $50 billion to expand its domestic business operations, citing the recently passed tax cut legislation."At ExxonMobil, we plan to invest more than $50 billion over the next five years to expand our business in the United States. These investments are underpinned by the unique strengths of our company and enhanced by the historic tax reform recently signed into law," Chief Executive Office Darren Woods said in a posting Monday on the company's website. "For instance, we will be investing billions of dollars to increase oil production in the Permian Basin in...

    Climate scientists admit their models were wrong! Just as prominent climate-change scientists are admitting their models predicting global warming were wrong, the city of San Francisco is suing five of the world’s largest oil and gas companies based on the “scientific consensus” that mankind is causing catastrophic damage to the planet through fossil fuels and other carbon emissions. The lawsuit filed Tuesday in California court accuses the oil companies – including Chevron, Exxon Mobil and ConocoPhillips – of ignoring warnings that fossil fuels would cause global warming and of engaging in campaigns to discredit the claims of climate scientists, the...

    Apparently all of that “anti-imperialist” rhetoric from Caracas was just a farce for public consumption. As Venezuela’s economy implodes amid skyrocketing inflation and crippling shortages of practically everything, Socialist strongman Nicolás Maduro (shown) has a new plan to prop up his imploding regime: annex two thirds of neighboring Guyana’s territory and almost one third of its population. The area eyed by Maduro’s autocracy is especially noteworthy now that potentially lucrative oil deposits have been discovered offshore. Unsurprisingly, a powerful alliance of the region’s socialist strongmen and their allies has sided with the regime in Venezuela. Talk of war is escalating....

    ExxonMobil – a favorite whipping boy of the left – found itself back in the deep state’s crosshairs this week.The Treasury Department’s Office of Financial Asset Control, a haven for burrowed bureaucrats, announced it has fined the energy giant $2 million for purportedly violating sanctions by dealing with a Russian businessman who had been placed economically off limits to Americans because of his involvement with Russia’s effective takeover of Ukraine. In March 2014, President Obama issued an executive order that gave the Secretary of the Treasury the power to designate Russian officials viewed as contributing to the Ukraine problem and...

    When the compact figure of Vladimir Putin strode onto the world stage after his success in the 2000 presidential elections, a tremor of anxiety passed through the collective body of Western leaders. Gone was the boozy, bumbling, free-wheeling Boris Yeltsin, clown-prince of post-Soviet Russia who had unaccountably found himself in the box seat at the historic moment when his country was rolling up the Communist empire. The new leader of the new Russia was his polar opposite. A former KGB colonel, Putin was the identikit Soviet-style apparatchik: hard-eyed, unsmiling, tightly disciplined. And he had a black-belt in judo to prove...

    WASHINGTON - Exxon Mobil Corp. and other large oil companies are backing a carbon tax proposal put forward earlier this year by a group of former Republican leaders including James A. Baker III, the former secretary of state and a Houston attorney. The Climate Leadership Coalition, a group that includes Baker, former Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, and former Secretary of State George Shultz, announced a list of "founding members" Tuesday that includes Exxon Mobil, BP, Shell, Total, General Motors and Johnson & Johnson. "We support @TheCLCouncil as a founding member and are working to support its policy development process," Exxon...

    The Los Angeles Times has struck once again in a feeble attempt to sink ExxonMobil. This time, rewriting the story of a 28-year-old shipwreck. The April 6 L.A. Times story, by Columbia Journalism School researchers, used 2,340 words to reject years of court cases and research. Instead, the agenda-driven story blamed the 1989 Exxon Valdez shipwreck and resulting oil spill on climate change. The anti-Exxon hit piece is part of the Energy and Environmental Reporting Project at Columbia Journalism School, which also produced the 2015 #ExxonKnew campaign. Both reports were published by the L.A. Times and funded by George Soros,...
