Hey, so. You know that thing where cigarette companies knew all along about smoking-related illnesses even while they publicly mocked the idea? And then all of that came out eventually? And now how the tobacco industry is like one of the most reviled and least trusted industries in the world? And everyone was like, “Man what a PR nightmare! Har har I bet no other industry would make the same mistake har har!”
Well, surprise! Turns out Exxon’s internal reports were warning about fossil fuels causing climate change back in 1982.
Color me shocked. Shocked I say.
