    It is rather difficult to hide something in 1982, that was in the public domain in 1981!

    I'm sure they did. The alarmists act as if Exxon did this research, and hid it, when all along, all they did wad review other scientific works.

    They keep proving how ignorant and intolerant they are, and that they have so many poor values.

    And...

    I don't think this can be reiterated too many times to these confirmation bias CT'ers.

    The opening paragraph of that Exxon report contains:

    "It may be used as a basis for discussing the issue with outsiders as may be appropriate."

    That's hardly the worst thing Exxon has done in connection with climate change. I'd say that funding organizations that deliberately attacked the science and influenced politicians, so that they could continue to be profitable while damaging the environment, is even more egregious than burying research.

    I don't think that qualifies as a conspiracy. It's just a component of the abject failure of Exxon to take responsibility for its actions.

    This is total corruption putting their profits over the whole human race's future. I can't think of many things more unethical and vile.
    Exxon published and shared all their research results. Your claims are lying propaganda.


    The "Exxon Climate Papers" show what Exxon and climate science knew and shared

    If they withheld or suppressed climate research from the public or shareholders, it is not apparent in these documents. Guest essay by Andy May New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman has accused ExxonMobil of lying to the public and investors about the risks of climate change according to the NY Times and has launched…

    Why read the text when a headline tells you all you need to know?
