Exxon Mobil CEO Suffers From Mental Handicap

He's a moron.

"As a businessman, it's hard to speak favourably about any new tax, but a carbon tax strikes me as a more direct, more transparent and more effective approach," Rex Tillerson, CEO of the Irving, Texas based company, said Thursday at the Woodrow Wilson international center for scholars in Washington.

At a Dec. 11 event in Chicago, Tillerson, 56, said he preferred a carbon tax to carbon trading programs such as the type used in Europe.

I don't know about you, but my Suburban will roll right by every Exxon station without even lifting off the accelerator.

Here's a thought: Those of us who drive vehicles that emit large quantiies of "green house gas" (strangely enough due to the consumption of large quantities of Exxon main product) purchase our petroleum elsewhere. We could all burn Shell or BP while the greenies in their death trap disposable micro-cars patronize Exxon. It wouldn't take long for the Rockefellers to fire the Tinman and hire a CEO with a brain.

Pure Fucking Gold

I note Vox has taken a much more hands-on approach discouraging thread stealing, cocoment bashing, and off topic comments.

The following "somehow" managed to escape unedited by everyone's favorite umbrella drink connoisseur......

Do learn how to link, folks. It's not hard and it's easier for people to see what you want them to read.

Bite me. If cocomment was worth it's weight it would make those cut and paste links clickable.

I mean seriously, even haloscan has figured out how to do this.

For some reason I can't read that without hearing a voice-over of "Bubbles" from the Power Puff Girls.
