Has Exxon Really Seen the Light on Global Warming?

"The company's support of climate skeptics, many of whom have no real grounding in climate science, appears to be an effort to distort public discussion about global warming," wrote Miller, who serves as chairman of the Investigations and Oversight Subcommittee of the House Committee on Science and Technology. "I hope that the company has moved away from support for public policy advocates who attempt to twist and distort the scientific record."

Despite the concern over the company's donations, Greenpeace's Davies also believes Exxon is at least part of a solution to a warming climate.

"The bottom line is, we want ExxonMobil to help stop global warming," Davies said. "We need their help. And until they own up to what they've been doing for the last decade and unless they start pulling with the rest of the world, we're going to have a hard time solving global warming."
