In January of this year a meeting was held in secret, “hosted by the Rockefeller Brothers Foundation (RBF). The stated purpose was ‘to establish in public’s mind that Exxon is a corrupt institution that has pushed humanity (and all creation) toward climate chaos and grave harm.”
This strategy session led Al Gore and 17 state attorneys general (and the Virgin Islands) to file criminal charges against the evil worldwide polluter and destroyer of our precious planet – which as we know, or have been repeatedly told since the 1980s, is on the precipice of destruction. I wrote about its genesis here.
The legal effort to stop Exxon Mobil (EM) from further reeking havoc on our planet is spearheaded by the New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. He filed RICO (racketeering) charges against EM and has demanded that they turn over all documents pertaining to its correspondence with any polluting sympathizers.
One of these sympathizers was the conservative Washington think tank, the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI). But being that the CEI doesn’t have billions of dollars to extort, the charges were quickly dropped against them.
