Exxon's Climate Research Accurately Projected Global Warming, Study Finds
ExxonMobil's own climate science research, which began in the 1970s, accurately predicted the pace and severity of global warming.
The study provides more evidence that Exxon's communication to investors and the public through the 21st century, which has played down the threats posed by climate change and cast computer models as uncertain, did not match what executives were told internally.
The research, dismissed by Exxon, may play a role in ongoing legal action against the company for allegedly misleading investors and the public about the dangers of global warming.
