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 CondÃ© 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.
