1996 Exxon’s Lee Raymond “Climate change: don’t ignore the facts”

In the fall of 1996, Lee R. Raymond Chairman, Exxon Corporation, had an article published in the oil company’s publication, The Lamp. The title of the article was, “Climate change: don’t ignore the facts.” Raymond wrote, “Proponents of the global warming theory say that higher levels of greenhouse gases — especially carbon dioxide — are causing world temperatures to rise and that burning fossil fuels is the reason. (See Global Warming — What to Think? What to Do?) Yet scientific evidence remains inconclusive as to whether human activities affect global climate.”
