Exxon minimized climate change internally after conceding that fossil fuels cause it

  • Internal documents reveal that Exxon executives, including former CEO Rex Tillerson, attempted to downplay concerns about climate change and discredit the severity of its impacts. They also supported research questioning mainstream climate science and sought to influence scientific groups.
  • Exxon is currently facing numerous lawsuits accusing the company of deception regarding climate change and seeking billions of dollars in damages. One such lawsuit filed by Hawaii's Maui County alleges that fossil fuel companies, including Exxon, contributed to increased climate-related risks such as dangerous wildfires. The litigation has brought attention to Exxon's actions and their potential consequences.
  • Despite claims by Exxon's current CEO, Darren Woods, that the company is committed to reducing emissions, the documents suggest a history of Exxon's efforts to undermine climate concerns. While Woods has stated that Exxon is investing in emissions-reducing technologies, the company's track record raises questions about its true dedication to addressing climate change.
