Exxon (a global supplier of oil and gas) agrees with the IPCC that the continuous use of fossil fuel will increase the rate of global warming. However, they argue that stopping the supply of fossil fuel would be irresponsible as people will not address this issue and may therefore need it.

Who are we to tell developing countries, that may be dependent on fossil fuels for their economic development, to stop using it? This is where we need to take responsibility for our own actions. In an ideal world the oil and gas companies may have invested in new technology to enhance the development of sustainable energy. But who are we kidding? Making money in the short terms always seem to win over the argument of a better future in the long term.

I see this as a challenge. Let's reduce our use of fossil fuel as best as WE can and show Exxon that we DO care.
