- 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.
- They started to collaborate with other fossil fuel companies to knowingly lie about CO2 emissions and its effects, in order to stop any global coordinated efforts to to prevent climate change.
A reminder that this Black Friday, rather than putting on an enormous sale, @itchio will be donating their entire revenue share from all sales on the site to a pair of LGBTQ+ and climate change charities
So many sites do:
“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”
