Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson has spent his career putting Exxon’s profits above the needs of people and the environment, and now he could become the U.S. Secretary of State. Handing the reins of American diplomacy to the head of the world’s largest (and most destructive) private oil company is blatantly corrupt — and very dangerous for the planet.
Under Rex Tillerson's watch, Exxon Mobil has been a top funder of climate change denial and attacks on climate action. Exxon spent decades spreading disinformation about climate change, even though the company’s own scientists sounded the alarm way back in the 1970’s. Tillerson has clear conflicts of interest and very cozy ties to Russia and Vladimir Putin.
