Rep. Brad Miller (D-North Carolina), chair of the House Subcommittee on Science and Technology, fired off a strong letter (pdf) to ExxonMobil demanding that the oil giant hand over documents relating to all grants awarded so far in 2007 by recipient.
Miller penned the letter after Greenpeace revealed today that ExxonMobil continues to fund global warming science attack dogs in the form of think tanks and industry-friendly associations. In the letter to Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson, Miller states:
ExxonMobil continues to lead the world’s corporations in profits and in market capitalization. Unfortunately, ExxonMobil’s economic success has been tarnished by a history of sowing doubt about the science of climate change, science you privately know to be true.”Could this be the first step in a Congressional hearing similar to Rep. Henry Waxman’s famous Big Tobacco Hearings?
Sure looks that way.
