The only problem now is that the problems are now, not long term in the future. But any help is appreciated.
I wouldn't argue that their steps are sufficient, but, they aren't trying to obsfucate about whether the problem even exists and for now, that has to be seen as a positive step.
Anyone who believes the Chevron environmental policy is a fool. Or Exxon Mobile or BP. Public relations policy writers are a dime a dozen. (good ones cost a bit more)
Pay attention to what they actually do.
Chevron, Mobil, and BP are the largest non-government investors in renewable/alternative energy technologies.
According to some you just must be a fool to believe what you just posted.
As we all know, only government programs reliably develop anything of use in the market.
Can Chevron move the Jet Stream?
National Heat Wave Continues Through June | LiveScience
"The intense heat that kicked off the summer of 2012 is the result of a "blocking" pattern that has caused the jet stream, a band of high-altitude westerly winds, to trap heat above the Midwest and Southeast, Jeff Weber, a scientist with the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colo., told OurAmazingPlanet earlier this month."
Old Rocks can you show us how CO2 moves the Jet Stream?
And several are starting to do more. Unlike most of the fringe absurdists typically encountered on political discussion boards, the oil companies understand the problems and the nature of what will ultimately occur. Their own scientists and researchers began warning them about the problem on the horizon 2-3 decades ago. they are simply trying to figure out how to make as much money (and new technology investments) as they can while they can.
Though I'd prefer perfect behavior, I feel that it is important to acknowlege any steps in the right direction.
I don't know that they are the largest, but they are certainly major and important investors. But I would expect no less. They are more intimately in tune with what is happening in the energy sector and where the future of that sector lies.
Smells like... "hyperbole".
