“Exxon Hates Your Children”

That’s the message of this Youtube video:

I don’t believe Exxon hates children. Not surprisingly, Exxon doesn’t agree as well.

So there may be different views on this issue. But one thing is sure.

As the planet heats up, so will the backlash against the people who got rich causing the problem. Since the misery will be both immense and universal, the backlash will of course be in proportion to the problem. That is, big.

This kind of video will be followed by more of the same, the clearer it becomes that doing business as usual just isn’t an option anymore. The smart thing for Exxon and the other fossil fuel industry players would be to strongly reduce their production right now, as long as there are still only mild rebukes as this one.

It also happens to be the most profitable course of action for them.
