- Exxon Mobile knew since at least the 70s about the potential harm caused by global warming and greenhouse gas emissions.

- In the 80s, they concluded that global warming would actually be good for profits; the polar ice caps would melt, making it easier to get at Arctic oil reserves.

“Here are cookie, advertising, tracking policies. Here is an OK button.”

After not clicking the ok button but attempting to continue:

“You must agree to our tracking policy”
