Description

Energy giant Exxon is more profitable than any company in human history, yet it has one of the worst public images of any major corporation. Loathed for its ecological disasters, litigation, and lobbying, Exxon is regarded as hostile and imperious even within its own industry. And if Exxon is more profitable than any other company, ever, this success is dismissed as short-lived because it remains an unapologetic champion of yesterday's fuels - coal, gas, and especially oil, which it believes will dominate the energy mix until well past 2050. Author and journalist Paul Roberts has been widely praised for his insights into the world of oil. Now, in "The Future is Exxon," he examines a uniquely powerful company, whose leaders and policies will affect our lives for years to come.show more
