    Ah. You have spotted the bleedin’ obvious that the Congress critters missed.

    > launched its own extraordinary research into carbon dioxide from fossil fuels

    That is nonsense. Exxon had a research programme, but its was nothing out of the ordinary.

    1. [Response: Are you guys missing the “bleedin’ obvious”? That while their scientists published in peer-reviewed journals, they funded a campaign of denial. Your argument didn’t save the tobacco companies, I doubt it will save ExxonMobil.]

      I rather suspect that replying to that would lead to a round of the arguments that have already been aired on my post; so I won't.
