A Democracy NOW interview with a reporter from Inside Climate Change who broke the story about Exxon’s knowledge of Climate warming back in the late 1970s. Worth 13 minutes of your time.
Interview with Neela Banerjee, lead reporter on the bombshell series of revelations from Inside Climate News, – what Exxon knew about climate change, and when they knew it.
The oil company was actually doing cutting edge research in the late 70s and early 80s, working with world class organizations like Columbia University and Scripps Institute of Oceanography – and made projections very much in line with the very best science of the day – in fact astoundingly accurate as to what we are observing today.
Also interviewed is former Exxon scientist Ed Garvey, who conducted CO2 measurements from oceangoing oil tankers in the early days of the program.
