AUDIO: ExxonMobil's CEO Channels Rumsfeld On Global Warming

David Sirota: The CEO of the largest oil company on the planet resorts to Rumsfeldian contortions on global warming at his annual shareholder meeting.

I attended the ExxonMobil shareholder meeting this week down in Dallas as part of some reporting I am doing for my next book, due out in 2008. When the issue of global warming and climate change came up at the meeting, ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson pulled what was a pretty hilarious Don Rumsfeld impression - even though he probably didn't even realize it. You can see what I mean over at YouTube where I've posted the audio I got from Tillerson. See the transcript in the extended entry.

David Sirota is a veteran political strategist and author of Hostile Takeover , a New York Times bestseller about the corruption of both political parties.
