Fossil Fuel Companies Are Lying

All the news
Our American perspective

India is going to need to pollute with fossil fuels to catch up?

You are easily lied to as an American.

Corporate America never stops the lying.

India slashes emissions rate by one-third in 14 years, putting it on track to reach UN goal | Euronews.

In the US the fossil fuel companies are trying to tell us all hope is lost. Therefore no efforts will ever matter. Therefore just use fossil fuels.

You are an idiot if you keep believing that. Not only that but China and India will eat your lunch if you do not wise up.

Tell your oil company to shove it.




At the same time, Exxon’s own researchers and engineers were “quietly incorporating climate-change projections into the company’s planning and closely studying how to adapt the company’s Arctic operations to a warming planet,” according to a Los Angeles Times investigationpublished in 2015.

Any risk of liability here akin to tobacco industry? I guess climate change victims face stiff hurdles to mount a suit.


Yup! That sums it up nicely. Big Oil KNEW about this problem decades ago from their own research. And just like Big Tobacco they lied about the results to protect their precious fortunes. All to the detriment of us. :frowning:


Sorry Leap, I agree that we should do everything we can to reduce pollution but I like my gas vehicles. My next vehicle probably will be electric but I do not see me pulling a trailer with an electric vehicle any time in the next decade. I understand that some fossil fuel executives have lied but fossil fuels have made my life easier and I don’t think we should demonize them while using them every day. I still heat my home with Natural Gas and that probably won’t go away for at least 20 years.



Bob you are a reliable gage of what the fossil fuel companies have been lying about.

My guess is that China’s GHG emissions will fall this year only if their economy is in the doldrums.

Here’s another prediction, this one from 2015:

Looking at their graph you can see imports should be well under 30 million tons. However, last year China imported 474 million tons of coal and 300 million tons in 2022.

The hazards of prediction. We shall see what happens.



It is always best to skip a link where there are facts on Chinese plant that is built.

It has worked so well in the past. Think of radium used on watch dials ( The Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America’s Shining Women by Kate Moore). Or think of lead tetraethyl used in gasoline or lead in paint (The Poisoner’s Handbook: Murder and the Birth of Forensic Medicine in Jazz Age New York by Deborah Blum). And of course as you mentioned tobacco ( Merchants of Doubt: How a Handful of Scientists Obscured the Truth on Issues from Tobacco Smoke to Global Warming by Naomi Oreskes and Erik M. Conway).
