One of the biggest challenges for us in the oil and coal industry is preventing strong action on climate change.The real Exxon ads that have been blitzing the airwaves are fronted by people like Erik Oswald. I can't in-line the video, so you'll have to go here.
It used to be easy: we ignored the problem, bought bigger and bigger private jets, and politicians always followed our lead.
Leaders are negotiating a binding global treaty to stop the climate crisis. They'll create millions of new jobs in a new cleaner economy.
The world has two real large challenges right now.Drill baby drill, eh, you death-wishers
One of them is to make sure we have energy to supply our economies, improve the standard of living for people all over the world.
And the second challenge is to be able to do that without harming the environment.
It's a massive amount of energy that's needed, and it's projected to grow over 30% over the next 25 years.
There's plenty of oil around for the future. The challenge is they're in more difficult places.
You have to make very large investments, and underlying it all, is technology.
ExxonMobil has developed breakthrough technology like R3M.
The Earth has electro-magnetic waves. With R3M listening devices you can make sense of those waves, which allows you to see deep below the Earth's surface before you've even drilled a well.
* "We invest for the long term so we know we are able to support growth that the economy needs.link
* "I think we are at a turning point in the history of energy. Energy use is projected to be 35% higher in 2030 than in 2005." link [And I thought "turning point" meant "change of direction"]
* "It's going to be oil and gas, coal, nuclear, wind and solar. We're going to need them all." link
And the worst one:
To maintain energy security in this country, we need all sources: alternative energies, solar, wind, and there are vast resources of oil and natural gas here in the US that are untapped.... and then it won't frigging matter will it? It'll be 30 years too late and you will have encoded three more decades of living the high-life into the memories of your rotting carcass of a brain.
We're able now to access oil and gas a mile down and seven miles out. We can do this safely. We can do it in an environmentally friendly way, and provide enough energy to fuel fifty million cars and a hundred million homes for 25 years.
At least it's good to see the daddy coming out and doing lying PR work and showing what they're really about, instead of hiring poxy bone-heads like Myron Ebell to lie for them.
It's an improvement. Exxon are having to pay for these TV slots, instead of the so-called news sections bringing in Myron Ebell for free and making out that he was some kind of voice of reason.
Unless the money going into the TV network's coffers from these ads are a method to buy out their editorial line. The whole political/information system is corrupt to the core like a suicide cult. This species deserves what it gets in the future of its own choosing.
At least in the UK where public opinion doesn't make a difference, this lying crap was kept off the air.
