How embarrassing: the DeSmogBlog has reported, at least twice, that ExxonMobil posted profits of $9.92 billion in the third quarter this year. That’s incorrect. At least, it’s old news.
The $9.92 figure was last year’s total. Third quarter profits for this year were $10.49 billion. Profit for the first nine months of 2006 totalled $29.25 billion.
The DeSmogBlog would like to apologize to ExxonMobil for any implication that the company is not creaming every last dollar out of the commercial production of greenhouse gases.
