I don't dispute the facts cited, but the phrase "debunking global warming" is horrifying coming from anyone other than an energy company flunky or white house PR flak. You cannot de-bunk something that is not bunk, aka bullpoop, to begin with.

I'd be surprised if you didn't agree that global warming is not bullpoop, not bad science, not fictional and, therefore, not bunk. What Exxon worked so hard at, and so successfully, thanks to white house greed, was discrediting the "theory", which is about as theoretical as gravity, and much easier to understand. Though still beyond the grasp of mental giants like our President, apparently.

Basically what he's saying is that picking the greenest of oil companies is like picking the least greedy of the fortune 500, or the least evil of mass murderers.

"Green" and "oil company" are basically mutually exclusive terms, until someday an oil company stops selling oil entirely for some kind of non-polluting energy source. In which case they won't be an oil company anymore.

Of course, if you're so worried about where you buy your oil and oil by-products, perhaps you should ah, stop driving?
