Rex Tillerson Says We Ain’t Giving Up on Oil Anytime Soon

An alert FBvian points us to this George Will story in Newsweek about ExxonMobil head honcho Rex Tillerson and his view on energy consumption. It begins:

Published at the apogee of Barack Obama’s apotheosis, the April 2009 issue of Condé Nast Portfolio, a business magazine, faulted ExxonMobil for not joining the green parade, for not investing more in alternative energies, and for not understanding oil’s eclipse as humanity emancipates itself from carbon-based energies. The magazine said “the company’s prospects for the next decade or two are starting to look shaky.”

Later that month, the magazine died. ExxonMobil lives.
